    I take Biology, Maths and English to A2 with BCC at AS. Lack of revision (cramming the night or couple of nights before my AS exams) motivation and organisation led to me to not fulfil my potential. I want AAB at A2 this year. I had been working hard during September/beginning of October but late October/November I've started to slack I only did a couple of hours of work during the week off from school, the October half term. How can I motivate myself to work and revise? I can't motivate myself to revise even though I want to do well. Even after I promised myself on results day this year that I would try harder to get the A2 grades I want.

    seriously though you need to start taking this seriously

    you're not gonna get AAB

    not even BBB if you keep going like this

    if it meant that much to you, you'd be working your ass off for it right now

    it's literally 6 months of investing into your life and dreams and if you're not even willing to do that then you don't deserve them

    simple as

    so get off your ass and work for yourself - it's not gonna be done for you anymore. there is no automatic progression into uni. do it so you'll have no regrets come results day

    If you need to be motivated by others to succeed you will fail.

    Ask yourself this:

    - Why does anyone else deserve the opportunities that come through education more than me? Are they any better than me? (Hint: no is the answer).

    - Am I so much of a fool, that I'm going to throw away this chance of doing better? Can I not suck it up for one academic year (notice, not even a full year)?
