    Nothing really... I put minimal effort into everything then work hard when I think I'm going to fail

    Sometimes I feel rather lazy if I work a lot. What motivates me is knowing their are poor people in life who would do anything for an education, so the least I can do is do my best!

    Knowing that there are so many people who don't get an education, let alone free education. Most of the time though, it's because I have so many people's expectations on my shoulders as well as mine so, I can let myself down but not everyone else

    I mean failure in the sense of the opportunities I have. I enjoyed school and feel I appreciated the opportunities someone born in England has compared to a lot of the world. It's just that whilst I enjoyed school, the reason I wanted to do well was because I feared failure in terms of not taking the opportunities given to me.

    The thought (or possibility) of gaining admission to Oxford for Chemistry!

    And peer pressure. Really hate it in class when someone is better than I am. Damn you Maths geeks!

    Looking forward to that feeling you get when you're accepted into your dream uni, how proud my parents would be when I announce my results, my friends' results (I use it to motivate myself, as It annoys me when a friend achieves higher results than me)
