    Think about failing and what that feels like you cna see loads of threads on TSR from unhappy people who failed. Think about not getting into Uni or getting to do the career you want.

    Get better organised and keep doing short bursts of work to keep chipping away and geting it down to a mangeable amount.

    So how long do you plan to be unmotivated for? A week, a month? You'll start after Christmas? Or Easter? Well now exams are nearly here and you've done no work. Do you really want to fail and have to retake a year?

    It's perfectly fine to be unmotivated now, you've only just started and it's not too serious. But if you let it carry on you'll fail miserably.

    Remember why you picked those A Levels and what your end goal is.

    How about do your work and then use TSR as a reward.

    Or games. Or books. Or porn. Whatever you enjoy can be a viable reward for getting your work done.

    This strategy has worked for me from the beginning of my undergraduate study right to now, as an author (you have no idea how easy it is to spend a day playing games instead of writing).

    Set ridiculously small, manageable goals then get a sense of achievement from ticking them off. If you really struggle with procrastination like I do and are overwhelmed by big tasks such as an essay or revision, write something like 'work out what historian's quotes fit with this essay title' or 'watch a short video on photosynthesis' or 'write a flashcard on what political legitimacy is using the textbook. Go over it tomorrow'.
