Motivation

Your level of motivation will affect your chances of success. Even if you love your subject, there will be times when you don’t feel like studying or ask whether you would be better off doing something else. At such times, you will need strong motivation to keep going!

Rate yourself on the following 20 aspects of motivation, with ‘5’ meaning you ‘agree strongly’ and ‘1’ meaning you ‘do not agree at all’.

When you are done, click 'Submit' to see your feedback and references to the relevant pages in The Study Skills Handbook which might be useful to you. Once complete, you can print or download the results of this activity. Try another self-evaluation: This self-evaluation has been adapted from The Study Skills Handbook © Stella Cottrell, 2013.
