This condition is called Senioritis by the Yanks anyway.

I currently have an acute case of it, and cannot wait to be cured, but hopefully without contracting any long lasting effects (eg **** grades)

Total honestly I have never felt acedemic burn out,
Which is really bad because at GCSE I passed all of them but didnt try,
AS Levels i got ok grades A B D which im looking to improve this year, so I guess by the end of my exams I may be able to relate to academic burn out slightly as ive never been more determind in my life to get straight A's in the summer so im working over over over time for my grades.

But just keep going and relax in the summer.

Peace

I haven't really started yet. If I did, I know I'd be fed up of revising a few weeks before the exams. I'm intending to have some very intensive revision as I'm going to aim for 290+ in all subjects.

I was like this when I was at College. By the end of your first semester at Uni, you'll have got it back. A Levels suck, just get on with them and do your best, and remember better things are to come. If you really feel depressed at the thought of academia, consider a gap year.

thankfully I'm taking Maths, F. Maths and Physics as the things I need to get my A's in, and I can quite easily motivate myself to do the hard therefore fun maths work, and physics is easy. But I basically have just given up doing work, I mean what's the point half of the time?

The fact that I only need D's in june to get A's overall really doesn’t help. I wish my teachers would just piss of setting me work so I don't disappoint them when I don't give it in! I also wish the common room sofas weren’t so good to sleep on, that often leaves you vulnerable to pranks though! I think you are right Democracy, I definitely have senioritis. cba tbh

I have exactly the same thing. I kind of pulled myself out of it last week when I realised I needed to write my Personal Study for next thursday. I've done it now and it feels really good; its picked me up out my rut.

I remember the burn out....push through it! Make the most of time off. By this I mean set aside a day or a couple of evenings where you don't even bother with books and study and do something fun! I found it better to get out of the house and do either outdoors stuff (took the dog for walks and a stress relieving ciggie. its all right, I've quit now and I don't suggest this as a tried and tested method) or go bowling or something. To feel I had really done something other than sitting in my room feeling like I'm wasting time not doing work. Have naps when you feel tired. Take your work to a new location, like a uni library, made me get loads more done. Its easy to get distracted at home. Oh, and I gave up doing homework. Coursework and revision all the way, but no homework.
