    Have you tried making a revision timetable? It doesn't have to be complicated, just decide which topics you're going to revise each day, ticking them off as you learn them. Once you organise your work and start actually seeing your progress, it might help you to become more motivated

    I tried making a timetable, and it went straight out the window on the first day. :/

    Me too. Got an exam next week, so I should really be revising. But, I've just been sacking it off.

    This is one of the good things that happen after leaving uni. You don't live with that sword of Damocles that makes you guilty for enjoying life (eg. "I have this ****ing essay to write, why I am doing that?", or "I shouldn't watch this, I have my exams next week. I hate myself.").

    You however have to write job applications.

    Think about what will motivate you i.e:
    Money
    Future Job
    Sense of Satisfaction
    Showing other people you can do it
    That kind of stuff
