Our expert says:
Many of us don't have a motivation specifically to study. Oddly, this seems a problem when we are in situations where we HAVE to study during exams ; and many of us study hapilly and busily when we're doing it entirely for ourselves, even if sometimes studying unorthodox subjects --- look at how some people dig into anime or Marvel Comicx, or whatever, though nobody expects them to do so. I think much of the "motivation" arises (a) from the sense of pressure, of HAVING to do this by next Thursday ) and better study habits and skills and time-tabling can help a lot here ) and (b) by focussing too much on "am I motivated to do this ?" questions about the study stuff itself, rather than looking ahead to WHY you are studying --- to what freedom it will give you to get jobs and a way of life which you presumably DO want. If you don't have a good answer to (b), if you really don't know why you are studying at all, or what it is you want which the quialifications will lead you to, maybe you should see a study counsellor to work out whether you should be stuidying at all, and if so, studying what.
Wherever you are studying should have student counsellors available, as well as study skills coaches --- work with these to find answers that suit you
