    Currently on the second year of my course in uni, I love the course but can't find any motivation to revise for it (have an exam in 2 weeks:banghead:). Need some tips or advice on what others do to motivate themselves into revising:albertein:

    I'm not in university yet, but the way I get out of my small hump of demotivation is by getting around people who work, and for example find different ways of studying, like you can ask each other questions and stuff.

    I'm guessing when you pick up a book you probably just stare at it (if you're like me lol). Maybe doing more active work - like I make quizlet flash cards as a different way of revising if I don't have the will power. Or I read through PowerPoint presentations.
    You can get out of the usual learning environment and try somewhere else.
    Have snacks too. So that it doesn't feel like your over studying.
    The main thing is to have breaks and to continue to give yourself a reminder that you can do this.

    This was just advice using my experience - I hope it improves for you.
    All the best
