    I am doing A - Levels. I take maths, french, chemistry and history. I have always been a high achieving student but I have never had to put in much work. I did well at GCSE's without working particularly hard and I have reached A-levels and everything is terrible!! I'm not failing, I am getting C's and some B's, but I want to do better and I know I am easily capable but I am so unmotivated. We are currently sitting AS mocks and I am so tired all the time (despite getting 9 hours sleep at least each night), I am not doing anywhere near enough work but I just don't seem to care. I know I can't continue like this because I want 3 A's at AS, but can someone please give me some advice on how to motivate myself to do work?? Is anyone else having the same problem??

    I have the same problem. I do want good grades and I do wan to revise but its something I just can't do. I seriously need some motivation. I managed to get all A/Bs for my GCSEs without revising and even now for A-levels I do okay with minimal revision. I really want to revise properly to achieve my potential, but I JUST CAN'T!
