    Is there anything I can do to get motivated? Even if I pick up any kind of material and start reading I doubt it'd be helpful considering my mind state, It'll be like staring at paper and hoping to learn something.
    My mind is just turned off, how do I turn it on? Am I alone in this feeling? It's kind of like... you just feel like if you're not procrastinating then you might as well be sleeping, it's not tiredness because if I tune into something entertaining then I'll feel energized again, but like if I even try to revise I just get frustrated since I don't know what'll help me because I don't have the motivation to sit here for 2 hours making notes, that's just impossible. I'm not even worried, I just can't find the part of my mind state that gives one about preparing for my Exams, no matter how hard I look.

    Add variety and think about what you feel like on result day or after the exam.

    Yeah, think it as if it is your whole future, and without it you won't get very far in life.. If you can't find ways to motivate yourself to revise try using a few different methods to see which suits you best to revise!! For example... Making colourful cards and putting them up around your room, or make songs out of your revision... Something what you enjoy doing use that for your revision.

    Don't revise, not everyone was made to get very good jobs. Go into construction work or something

    Yep think about how great you will feel if you get the grades you want on results day. And also set rewards after revision like watching your fave tv show. And maybe try and make revision more fun! Try teaching a topic to someone, sing your notes, or say them in a weird accent, make mnemonics. Also revise in a group, where you can quiz each other on flash cards and key ideas.
