    Sooo currently sitting mock exams and I tend to do long stints revising. But talking to other classmates sitting A Levels they don't seem to have the motivation I do to revise and succeed!!

    I feel guilty if I'm not revising which motivates me.

    Also if I get AAA I get an extra £2000 scholarship so that's motivation.

    I stick quotes on my wall and results sheets.

    But I remember in Year 9 doing my first Maths GCSE I had a David Tennant autograph which I stuck on my wall to motivate me haha! #weird!

    What about everyone else? What motivates you to get through revision?

    Guilt that stops me sleeping. If I build up enough guilt then I can get one day's work done. Also I want to prove to myself that I am capable of AAB if I put the effort in.

    Revising right now lol! and the awful thought that I will amount to nothing if I don't do well, I'm not even going to pretend I don't let exam results define me.

    avoiding a repeat of last year. i realise i could have worked much harder and smarter after college hours last year and am determined to get into the university of my choice this time around! The thought of not doing well and essentially wasting a gap year is what ultimately motivates me, as i would never forgive myself for not working whenever possible!!!

    I have little real friends.
    My hobbies and love of comics is going.
    Wrestling is just stupid now.
    Every night I come home and speak to no one.

    The past year has taken that from me for various reasons.

    It sure as hell will NOT take my education. No chance, funnily enough being an outcast has its perks. Here's an example of Thursday.
    Came home at 16:30, had dinner. Watched both simpsons on C4 then revised from 18:30 till 20:00. Not a lot but don't forget I've only started unit two and I've got little work. I'm going back to Unit one tonight so alls good.
    Simply put, I don't have much in life at the moment. The money I get from my part-time job just collects and all I do is read books.
    :0 now you say it, my life is crap!

    I just came home one day and thought...
    Instead of doing nothing. Do some work.

    I got offers to my dream unis and thought that would motivate me but it didn't as much.
    The only motivation I have is to not fail.
