Anyone else had a 'I'm done' moment with higher education?

I'm mid way through an MSc. I have a BA, and I moved on to the MSc straight after. I loved doing my BA and I did really well in it, I wanted (at the time) to do an MSc but the whole time I've been doing it I have really intensely disliked it. I find it utterly tedious and I dread having to do anything for it. I don't care about my grades at all. I barely tolerate the lectures and I really struggle to motivate myself to do the reading. I'm passing but not doing amazingly. It's not the subject that's the problem, it's in a very closely related field to my first degree, it's just that I feel so completely done with education. It's like a switch has been flicked and I just don't care anymore. My friend said she had exactly the same feelings, albeit at a different point in her education. I'm going to finish my MSc as I'm already one third of the way through, but I wonder has anyone else felt like this? Any tips on getting through it?

My DD did. Year 2 of her BA. I encouraged her to complete the year to gain whatever certificate it is you get. By the end of the year she rediscovered her mojo and graduated with a first.
