You are probably procrastinating because you're not actually relaxing. You're doing stuff that isn't revision but in your mind you're thinking 'I need to revise' so you're not properly relaxed watching Youtube, FB etc. If you have 11 days and you've done sufficient revision up until now, I suggest taking an afternoon or a day off. Don't think about revision. DON'T mindlessly spend the day watching Youtube or scrolling Facebook. Have a bath, go for a long walk, watch a movie or read a book, go out for dinner, have an early night. Then the next day start revising again.
You seem to have time and this works really well for me. Few people would be able to stay motivated to study all day every day for that period of time and if you're working efficiently when you are studying, there's no real need to do that either. Relax PROPERLY for a short period of time and then get back to it, you'll feel like you've had a proper break and hopefully will be able to focus better!
It's definitely common. Exams aren't easy, it's hard to focus all day every day for an extended period of time. You need proper breaks, rest, ideally good nutrition. And when you've given up and find yourself scrolling you just need to remember how much you will regret getting a grade that is beneath you. I've done A levels, a law degree, and am halfway through my law master's degree, and I still regret Biology. It's just not worth the Youtube and Facebook and Instagram scrolling, and if you get a bad grade you've only let yourself down!
