    Without hard-work you're not going to do particularly well, unless you're a natural genius at that particular subject. In my humble opinion, the reason for my success at A-Levels was largely due to my work ethic. So I would heavily advice getting in the habit of working hard, start of slowly - do an hour or two of work per day, and as the the course progresses and nears towards exams, dedicate more time towards your studies. You're talking about your future, you want a good career and a good future, and the way you can better your chances of that, is by working hard and achieving good grades at A-Levels, what more of a motivation do you need?

    You need to find a way of getting yourself motivated, A-Levels are nothing like GCSE's. Not even people who got all A*'s can breeze through. Revise a lot. Do past papers, make cue cards, mind map. Whatever works for you! I didn't get myself motivated 2013-2014 and got rewarded with EEUU grades, forcing me to repeat they year (turned out to be the best thing I ever did tbh, love my college and subjects and got much better grades). Keep your mind focused on the future and what you want to do. Use that as a goal to work towards. If you really want it, you CAN motivate yourself!

    Stop being so pathetic and start working hard. You will not get any grades(yep not even an E) if you carry on like this.
