Hello everyone,
I have my a level mock exams in two days and I literally don't feel like doing anything at all. I can't be bothered to revise and I spend valuable hours after school procrastinating and doing anything but revision. I don't know why I feel this way. I want to do well but I literally can't motivate myself to sit down and study. I know that before the exam I am going to be stressing out and panicking, yet even that thought is not motivating me to get out of bed! Does this happen to anyone else, or just me? Why does this happen?
Thanks!

I felt the exact same as you! I'm doing my GCSES and got into the bad habit on procrastinating and just accepting failure lol. what I did was I made the revision less daunting for example write down what topics are going to be in the exam. this will mean you won't feel so overwhelmed because you'll know there's a limit to the content you'll be covering. then tick topics off as you revise them and tell yourself 'I'm gonna do Hal an hour of English then relax' . don't cram in revision! also find a revision method that works for you that isn't boring. good luck!

Current mood. Try making a study blog. That might motivate you

I might actually try doing a time lapse of myself studying - a lot of people say that helps them. Thanks for the advice!

I will definitely try doing a to do list - perhaps approaching content in smaller chunks will seem less daunting. Thanks for the advice and good luck!

Yup I do that too! It motivates me to revise and keeps me on track when I do revise. Good luck!

I had the exact same problem. I couldn’t stop procrastinating because I preferred to be upset about not doing it then actually doing it. It was easier. But then one day I stood up, just picked up some books and it kind of just flowed from there.

You’ll definitely do great!!!
