    Hiii!! So i started AS this year in September and i remember how enthusiastic and determined i was to work hard and achieve the grades i want.. i take maths, accounting and business studies and will be giving them in june....at the start i was really motivated and fell in love with the subjects. It was nice to learn new things and honestly i was never bored with it. But since December, i just lost all of my motivation. I just don't know where it went. My grades started to fall suddenly which really made me worried. I was the highest in my class and teachers expect a lot from me. Also, even while practicing, i make a lot of silly mistakes. It has got to a point where i don't even like to go to school now, for i loved to go to school. Every time i tell myself yes ill do it this time but i just can't. I am just so frustrated. So exhausted. So confused. I don't know what's wrong and what to do? I was a bright student and i did well at the start but now i literally suck

    If you want to go to university, then perhaps visit some? It's never too early once you've started your A-Levels and maybe seeing where you want to end up as well as knowing that it might be pretty tricky to get the grades to go there might motivate you more to achieve those grades.

    You could also try different revision techniques? Flashcards, mind-maps, online videos (I took maths and furthers maths as AS and if you search 'further maths support programme' they have videos for all maths topics and exam boards, going through exam questions, although these vids might seem a bit boring) there are plenty of youtube videos or vids from elsewhere that could be more enjoyable.

    Don't plan to spend hours on revising in one chunk when you know you probably won't be able to do it as you'll feel bad for not doing it. Perhaps do an hour at a time with good breaks, not just looking at rubbish on a phone. :P

    Hope some of this helped, good luck!
