    I've got no positive way to say it, but if you feel like you can't be bothered tough luck, sit down and get on with it. Globalisation doesn't care if you can't be bothered, if you don't do well in college and go to a decent uni, life is going to be harder for you later on.

    A full time, dead end job which doesn't pay great with no prospects is absolutely soul destroying, I have learned it the hard way, don't mess about, get on with it.

    you are blessed to be receiving a free education and a chance to go as far as you want in life, take full advantage of it now or you will regret it, I promise

    Given that you're probably only 16/17 if you just finished GCSE, you're in a decent position to think about what you want to do with your life, it's certainly too young to be saying your life's over. Think about what you want to study and get a head start for September?

    I've realised as I got older education isn't as much about innate ability as it is making the effort. Make the effort and you will get where you want to be. Don't make the effort and you'll pay double for that mistake later on.

    Education is weird because you get told to work hard by older people, but most people in education are teenagers with little life experience to really understand why they need to work hard, and it's a cliche to be told to work hard so it's usually ignored, but really, put the effort in now and you will be rewarded tenfold later

    Don't worry brudda, I feel the exact same after exams.

    Just take off a couple of days and do whatever you want (Video games, strip clubs that kinda thing) - then you should more motivated!

    Don't feel guilty about having a little break, there's nothing wrong with that.

    Just have a few days off and then get back into it. This will pass and you'll be fine

    Good luck!

    -Use whatever career you're aiming for as motivation. Why did you start sixth form in the first place?

    -As has been said, take some time to recharge.

    -Look after your body, and then your mind will be ready.

    I think colleges are legally obliged to take you on if you're under 18 anyway, regardless of what grades you have (and probably goes up to 25, provided you don't have higher qualifications)?

    You should contact your local colleges and explain your situation and see what they advise. There will definitely be a way back into free education at your age.

    if you want to feel better about the situation, start studying for the stuff you're planning to retake now and be prepared for this november's resit, as well as contact the college/6th form and seeing what they can suggest

    I am guessing you have revised pretty hard for the mocks? Take into consideration the amount of hours you have put in regards to revision.

    People seem to be telling you that you need to press onward. I agree with that to some extent, but don't burn out. Perhaps take a day/weekend off.

    I cant write my university essays when my mind is elsewhere. If I have had a tough day of note making, I will take the evening off. Your mood is going to directly correlate to your notes.

    **** mood?
    **** notes.
