TSR, I need advice.

I used to be such an ambitious, highly motivated student back in sixth form. As an example of my productivity as a sixth form student, I used to wake up at 7am every weekend, revise until 12pm where I would take a break to eat breakfast and watch football, then go back to studying once the football was over. I also used to study for 6 hours after my classes during the week.

I really wanted to get into Medicine, but due to my poor AS results, I decided to get AAAa (Maths, Chem, Bio and Further Maths) and then take a gap year so I can apply for Medicine. At the end, I achieved AABa in my A-Levels.

I took the B in Biology pretty hard, I still took the gap year as I believed I could get into a top university for Mathematics. In hindsight, I should have studied Biomedical Sciences at university and then apply for Medicine as a post graduate...but all my belief went after I got a B in Biology. I got all A's in my Biology exams, apart from the last paper, which I somehow got an E in...I still don't know how I did so badly, especially when I walked out very confidently.

That gap year really took everything out of me, my ambition, my motivation and my productivity. I haven't seen a single 80%+ in my exam results since my sixth form days. I've only once got 70%+ in my university exams, and that was by far one of the easiest exams where most people achieved 88%+.

I still have my 3rd year of university to do, over the first two years I've averaged a pretty low 2:2...thinking I can get a 2.1 overall in my mathematical degree is now borderline impossible, with my academic record at university. I just don't know what to do anymore. I find it so difficult to study and revise.

Can you guys give me any advice in how to become the student I once was? Any tips?
