    I have problems with motivation, when I am home I can't help but procrastinate with Internet - I kinda am right now by typing this - and i leave things to the last minute before cramming because of panic. Especially with homework I am having problems with, I delay them because I can't get my teeth into them.

    How do you motivate yourself? Any tips? I've tried schedules but I don't stick to them. I'm doing okay so far with A-Levels, even did some HW first day of it being set, but I'm beginning to slide into old habits.

    I know what you mean, when something is difficult it is easy to put off / not do at all.

    It's dififcult but it's also habitual - you have to forget about doing fun stuff (outside of breaks...) and tackle your homework first, and reward yourself after. If you're stuck, do some revision over the material before trying the homework again.
