    I'm generally used to being one of the top few people in my classes and my GCSE results were pretty good but after coming on to a level it seems I just can't bring myself to care anymore. My homework grades are slipping slightly - not enough for it to be a cause for concern just yet, but I just can't get my self to do as much work anymore. I do have goals and need to achieve top grades to study what I want... And I know I can achieve them if I put the effort in... But I am completely unable to motivate myself the way that I used to in GCSEs and the first few weeks of A Levels - I'm finding getting completely organised hard too - as I can't bring myself to do that either. I'm not finding the work set overly challenging or anything - but as Im leaving homeworks to the last minute so I have to rush them, the workload is feeling a lot greater than it would if I could do it on time. Does anyone else feel a bit overwhelmed like this? Any advice would be appreciated!

    My advice. At half term get some rest, let off steam but dont drink too much. Come back refreshed and focused.

    Possibly (burnout), but like the previous post above, during term break or something take a week or so to chill completely or try picking up a hobby or exercise to distract you from work for awhile and then try to get on with your work.
