    Do you have any goals that you need to work towards? Maybe you need certain grades to be able to study certain subjects, or maybe you have plans for university in the future. Getting decent grades is important for that so use that as motivation!

    Also, think about how happy and proud you will feel if you get good results! I don't know about you, but the thought of failure often scares me into revision. I've struggled with motivation so much throughout my education and it's left me with regrets as I didn't necessarily achieve what I was capable of! It's a horrible feeling so work hard now so you don't have to feel that way

    It's really not too bad once you get into it, make revision more bearable. Have a nice snack whilst you're doing it, make things colourful, maybe try a bit of quiet music in the background if you can study with noise.

    Good luck with your exams! You can do this

    Medicine at Oxford = good job = good money = good lifestyle = no poverty = nice house = well raised children = success for future grandkids etc.

    When I feel unmotivated to revise, I take a break and go on youtube and watch results day videos. There's two main types the people with A*'s and A's and those without a C. It really helps me focus and to know where I want to be going.
