5. Freedom Writers (2007)

Coming in under the radar in 2007, this film tells a true and inspirational story based on the success of Erin Gruwell, a teacher who came up with a unique style of teaching that took a group of underachieving inner city kids to the heights of academic achievement.

Erin is played by Hilary Swank, who does an impressive job of portraying a woman with a single-minded drive and passion for education. It's wonderful to see how the lives and fortunes of her class are completely turned around when they finally get into studying. Watch this scene where Miguel reads aloud from his diary, demonstrating the power of education.

6. Stand and Deliver (1988)

Finally, another inspirational film based on a true story, Stand and Deliver tells the story of Jamie Escalante who leaves his job to teach maths at a school with a reputation for rebellious students and a focus on discipline over education. Over the course of two school years, Escalante takes his students from struggles to successes; the high point comes when the students all pass their advanced calculus exams.

Stand and Deliver demonstrates that academic success is not out of reach just because of their background or their current struggles. The story demonstrates the possibilities open to anyone no matter what they may have been told in the past. 

So next time you feel yourself becoming disillusioned with your course or you're finding the workload too great to bear, take some time out to watch one of these movies and maybe it will remind you why you chose to study your subject in the first place and inspire you to study. Also, here are 10 more inspirational movies that can help you take your mind off your exams, relax a bit and head straight to the books after.
