    I've got A2 exams in less than a month and I haven't even started revision yet. I basically wasted the entire easter holiday and I'm still procrastinating. Please can someone make me revise!!!

    I've got a university offer, which I think is quite manageable to meet considering I got quite high UMS for AS last year, which is making me lazy and put off revision... I just don't care about anything - I'm so tired and I've had enough of school!

    Please can someone just scream at me and tell me to revise!! Have I left it too late? I'm doing 4 A2s, is there enough time for me to get good enough grades?

    You can't always rely on feeling "motivated". You must work hard regardless of how you are feeling

    Do past papers and use those to focus your revision.

    Just think - most of the stuff you can forget after the exam - it's the last time you'll need to look at some of those books!

    I haven't made notes though or memorised anything so I'm not sure how I can do past papers :/

    Thanks though - the last part was quite motivating!

    Me neither. I feel exactly the same + desperately need some motivation too; let's do it together..?

    Well, I can keep track of you if you want, I'll prompt you everyday up until our exams/you can report back everyday to me with how much you managed to do + that might encourage/motivate you to study?

    And all this time I thought you were year 12! Lol


    OP it's okay, you're not alone. I have been dragging coursework on my back for weeks because I just had such a rough time getting motivated....it happens.

    I'm in the exact same position. The only way I'm somehow managing is by forcing myself to complete past papers.

    I'd really recommend trying past papers - then you'll know what you NEED to revise - some stuff will be remembered. Past papers are 'active revision' - most people find making notes pretty boring as it can be passive.
