Consider yourself lucky then. It is for some people with addictive personalities, they can easily become hooked on it. Constantly checking notifications, news feeds, the number of likes a post has, stalking, PMs..honestly it's endless. Deactivating it is the only way for some people to have their mind at rest. It's not worth failing because of social media, that can wait whereas exams can't.

Don't you talk outside of school? on fb or on other social media? You will regret not asking her out also is she staying in sixth form at the school? cause you sound like you are doing Gcse's.

I feel the same way kind of I'm in year 13 and I'm actually completely crazy other a girl were not dating or anything she's just a crush but I think about her 24/7. I struggle to focus on revision often because my mind drifts off to daydreaming about her. Sometimes I try to motivate or reward myself like if I do this past paper I reward myself with 10 minutes of day dreaming about her. Sounds cringe but if I don't do it I get depressed because I like her so much
Spoiler:ShowDON'T FAIL YOUR EXAMS, but awh

If he doesn't care, you can't make him care. It's as simple as that. When your life goes down the drain, that is when people start caring for themselves.

Nobody appreciates being talked down to, that's probably where the negative behaviour comes from when you tried to help him. I know you mean well, but if he's not doing well, then it's all a bit confusing and annoying for him, and you trying to sort it out for him probably won't go down to well. I know it sounds odd, but often when you're in a stressful situation you can push others who're trying to help away.
Let him know you'll be there to help if A levels don't work for him, but don't try to push him too hard. Let him make his own choices, but know you're there. That's how I was when I was younger anyway.
