    hey all,

    I worked really hard for AS (triple science maths) and got 4As. I made detailed notes, worked really hard before in-lesson tests, and basically worked my socks off.

    but then A2 came around (still doing all 4 subjects) and i find that im just not motivated at all. as opposed to before when i used to do everything, i find that i often skip lessons, dont do my homework and when i need to do in-lesson tests i just wing it. i have no motivation whatsoever! furthermore, i find that im not interested in biology or chemistry anymore and even maths is boring me.

    anyone else gone through this?
    any ways that i can be more motivated? right now as soon as i get home I just read a novel or watch something and relax i know i shouldnt but i just cant work...

    thanks for any responses!

    Same here, buddy. We all get tired but stick it out for a little bit longer. Time will fly and in about 6 months you'll be done with college. If you're struggling to force yourself to work, then you should consider dropping one a-level to make the workload easier. A2s are hard. If anything, you should be putting in more effort than you did last year.

    Good luck and hang in there. The end of the academic year is fast-approaching. And there are tonnes of courses at university that don't need specific a-levels

    It's all this uni excitement tbh :lol:

    I feel like I'm ready to move on, so just being stuck here still at school is starting to eat away at me... hence the lack of motivation.

    I wish I'd had the same enthusiasm and work ethic at A2 as I did at AS. I was predicted A*A*A based on AS UMS but got AAA in the end, I was a little disappointed as I think I could've achieved more. Now I'm taking a gap year and applying to Oxford due to missing a Cambridge offer. I think I burnt myself out working too hard at AS, had no energy left for A2.

    Coming from someone who was in the same boat as most of you, I left it to late and messed up on exams in A2, however because everything evens out with the results I did okay (The whole A level is 50/50 so if you did amazing first year then even if you do remotely good you will come out with an okay result). I would honestly give the typical answer, put in as much effort as you can. Leave it until the mocks are over and see where you f'd up then give it your all because at the end of the day, it's only another 6 months before it's all over then you can forget about it.
