    Basically I am struggling badly at a-levels at the moment. I have had talks with teachers recently due to my bad grades in formal assessments and whether I should even be entering the exams.

    However, this all falls down to not being able to revise for these exams due to having no motivation whatsoever and having no idea what to do.

    I managed to pass through GCSE's with no revision but I know this is definitely not the case with a-levels.

    I just need to know techniques to revision and how to gain motivation. THANKS!

    There is no secret method. You open your book/ notes and review what you have learned. Once done you practice using past papers to get an idea of what the examiner wants from you.
    If you want motivation then just think about how stress-free your summer will be if you make the effort to revise now.

    Good luck
