    hey there! Since the start of my A2 level I feel unmotivated to study, in my As year I use to revise a lot and invest so much time in my studies which help me manage to get a decent grade on my As exam. I was predicted A*A*A however I start to slack off and I am afraid that I am not able to achieve my predicted grade in my A2 exam. The medication that cure my depression didn't really work, I feel really unmotivated and the workload in my A2 start to increase a lot. I used to fancy myself able to become a philosopher in academia, which this goal had motivate me a lot in my AS year to devote time in studies. But my goal is no longer there, I basically loss interest in pretty much everything.... is there any advice or suggestion to resolve this situation?

    Thanks!!!

    Open up a book and get started. Even if you do five minutes it's a start.

    Then try again the next day and the next and you get the idea...

    I just imagine what will happen if I fail. xD

    And when I find things REALLY hard, I take the evening off work which refreshes me enough to start afresh the next day.

    Thanks u guys I really appreciate the advice given - it's might sound easy to just start concentrating on my work, but when my depression kicks in I am just wanna sit there and do nothing or trying to distract myself from my sadness - my ability to concentrate decrease significantly. There seems to be nothing I can do with it.....

    I can be similar sometimes. I find that removing all distractions from the room helps. So there's nothing much else I can do except sit and read. Not a perfect solution by any means, but I find it helps a bit.

    if you've applied for uni then the thought of going to the uni should surely be enough motivation for you to revise

    In this stage I did apply for oxford and UCL, sometimes I am quite hopeless on getting an offer. sometimes I think that I have a high chance than I would be very motivated , but sometimes I just think that I would never get an offer.. I would start to slack off....
