    Got 14 exams this year. Hoping to go through clearing so I don't know what I'll be doing at uni or where I'll even be. Can't get motivated at all, I do about 2 hours and get fed up for a week before I start again.

    Help.

    sounds like you feel disillusioned which is understandable because the A level process can feel like you're jumping through hoops and you don't feel passionate about what to do afterwards.

    Best advice I can give you is try your best in the exams to keep your options as wide as possible and think carefully about what, if anything, to study at uni because you can only get funded for one undergraduate degree. Even a gap year could give you inspiration through work and evening courses. Just focus on the exams for now and see how you feel afterwards because it can be hard to force ideas and inspiration and that's ok.
