    Hi everyone

    I'm just wondering if anyone has any tips on how to get my motivation back, and make sure it stays? I have an offer for a course I love at a university I love and I would really like to actually get in! I have had 'bursts' of motivation, for example when I was writing a script for my Film Studies coursework (which I actually really miss and wish I hadn't had to stop) but otherwise I just feel blank. I have low self-esteem as well which really doesn't help as I just constantly think that I'll never get where I want to be and I'll never get those grades however hard I try because I'm not good enough

    Help please!

    Thank you!

    Hiya,

    I also struggled A LOT with motivation while doing my A Levels, for various reasons. I found that creating a realistic revision timetable helped me to keep on track with my revision, and by being able to visually see my progress, I managed to stay relatively motivated. Perhaps that is something you could try?

    I watch A level results day videos on Youtube AND I spend a few minutes thinking about how mediocre my life would be compared to how amazing it would be if I could seize the opportunities that would open to me through getting good results.

    Yeah, I've made a semi-revision timetable for the easter hols. My college broke up last Friday and I've NEARLY got all my Psych cue cards done But there's so much to learn and no way am I going to be able to learn everything, even though another (smaller) part of me says I'll never know if I don't try

    I have literally watched all of the results day videos and read through the old results day threads on here But it's worth trying again I guess, whilst keeping what you said in mind
