    My first A2 exam is in a little over a month and I've never felt so demotivated. I've done 0 work in 4 days and I feel so guilty but I just can't bring myself to do anything (I've literally spent most of today sleeping). I've been revising a lot from quite early on so my grades are pretty good but now I'm burning out at the completely wrong time 😣 Ugh I don't know what to do, force myself to do work and try and wait until I snap out of this?

    also start planning what you want to achieve and start off with a smaller things, to get you back into the swing of things

    This tends to happen when you start revision too early, burnt out and brain turns to mush.
    My advice: stop and collect yourself, act like this is the beginning of your revision rather than the end. Try and different technique of revision that doesn’t involve long notes - try condensing them down, flash cards are often helpful but try writing out notes from memory. Try past papers! Best revision technique imo, plus they are easy to get at A2.
    You need to give your brain refreshing new starts to the subjects without going over stuff you already know. It may take a while to get back into a steady flow but reorganising and trying new techniques is the only way to trick your brain into concentrating

    I find that having a regular sleeping pattern, helps you feel more motivated.

    Like if I miss my alarm and wake up even 1 hour late, the entire day I feel lazy and cant concentrate.

    First focus on getting sensible sleeping hours.

    Then try revising in blocks on 1 hour and make a list of what you hope to achieve in each hour.

    I find videos from this youtuber called unjaded jade help alot with how to revise
