    I know how you feel, I'm at A2 and I'm losing the motivation to revise as well- the motivation I have is that I need to get certain grades to get into Uni, for you maybe it could be to get your As so that you can try to apply to more competitive universities? If it helps you, I'd recommend making a revision schedule so that you know when you need to revise and for how long (I'd recommend either 45 minute sessions).

    I currently take Biology and French at A2, so I'll give you my tips for them:
    Bio:
    Make revisions cards on the topics and get friends/family to test you on them
    Do past paper questions, mark and annotate them in areas you need to improve- it's one thing knowing the information but a lot of people seem to struggle with exam technique.
    Remember to draw diagrams for some topics if that helps you to revise better

    French:
    Listen to the French news everyday for around 10 minutes- this will help you with your listening skills as you become more used to native French speakers (they will also be speaking a lot more quickly than they will in the exam, if you can begin to understand what they're saying then you're on the right track!). This will also help you with your accent when you speak.
    Do grammar exercises so that you can use a variety of different structures in your essay and remember to go through vocabulary
    Do past paper reading questions when you can so you get used to some of the unfamiliar vocab that they use (and note it down because they might use it again)

    Hope this helps
