I completely relate. Im in year 13 and have just started to actually get serious about a-levels. For certain subjects in year 1 I put in so much effort but the other I basically neglected completely. Now I find that making clear lists of what I need to do is very helpful. I use the app 'forest' to track how much time I spend revising to help me visually see it and make me hit a quota. Even if you don't feel like it, try and do a little bit to start with, it might get you into the swing of it. I wake up early and try and get as much done as early as possible too. Its hard but it feels like it's working.

also, you just need to get through these two years and you'll be free. If you don't work hard now then two short years might turn into more. Make some plans and ideas for your future so you have something to work towards.

The best advice I can give is to look over your work every day. It’s easy to push things to one side and say you’ll look at it later, but later never happens! And before you know it, it’s June. Review your notes, try to condense them into ‘what you need to know’ and then look for an exam question on that topic. Try the question without your notes, check the mark scheme, and then use the mark scheme answer to refine your notes.
Do that every day (just half an hour) and you will find that it starts to stick. The trick with A-levels is consistency. Keep on top of the pile of work, and you grow with it rather than having to climb it.

At the moment it probably looks like a mountain, but think what it’s going to look like in June...

getting started is really hard, but once you start it will get easier. Are you carrying on with the 4 subjects next year too?

Then I think you need to prioritise - think about where you want to go after college and how you need to get there. Then you should see which A-levels you need to focus on, and then any spare time use to catch up on the fourth. I hope that helps ☺️
