Seriously need some motivation to revise watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hello all,

    Title says it all. First AS exam on friday, started work at 5 today then gave up after 50 minutes. Im doing Maths a level in a year, chem AS, phys AS and politics AS. I was a lot more motivated in january and got a decent A in Maths AS as a result. For GCSEs last year was very motivated and did well also.

    Now, however, i am simply not working hard enough. Im into the past paper stage (though not going to do much for politics which is a dos) but generally cannot work. I have done no M2/C3 or C4 revision either.

    I am aiming and Im capable of getting A* in Maths and As in the AS levels, but my low motivation is having a profound effect on me.
    Please find a way to motivate me, or I fear I will fail.

    Many thanks!

    Hey. Imagine getting a D or a C. Imagine your parents' faces. Imagine how much your results letter will kick you in the stomach.

    Also, try asking friends how far they've got. If you're remotely competitive that may help.

    Otherwise let me know if you get some motivation. I have my last ever uni exam on Friday and I don't even care about failing. So bad!

    just think that 'this time next month I will be done - bring on summer' and just think where you'd be if you got 3 E's !!
