I'm struggling to get motivated for my exams (first one is tomorrow) so I was wondering what keeps all the medics motivated? Especially since it's such a long course with so many exams!

Fear is a pretty big motivator - no one wants to face the stress of doing resits or retaking the year. Or worse, getting kicked out after working so hard to get in.

What stage are you at?

1) That there's life after exams

2) That your future will be amazing if you do some work (t&cs apply, results may vary)



What should you do?

Plan something fun after exams - drinking, going out, seeing friends, having a BBQ, going to the cinema, buying/doing something extravagant etc.

Forget motivation. Doing is what's important. No one feels motivated 24/7, even medics. What people who have a goal that they're achieving have in common, though, is self-discipline. Self-discipline is what keeps you going when your motivation runs dry.

Work hard. There aren't an short-cuts. Decide that your dream is worth it, then follow through!

I find not having motivation in the first place a great means of avoiding its loss.
