    Hey guys, on most days i am dissapointed with the amount i have covered during revision becuase i get distracted really easy and i find solid concentration hard. Any tips on how to keep my concentration up and how to stay alert till roughly 1/2 AM. Cheers

    Personally, I prefer doing revision during the day and in the afternoon/early evening. BUT, if you want to revise at night time, then I'd suggest coffee will be your best friend!

    I will drink plenty of water at night if I wanted to stay up, have to keep going for pee and it'll help you concentrate.

    This. Although not because you have to keep going for a pee it just works. Also take a break to snack to keep the energy up and brain ticking .

    Don't go down the Red bull route unless you already drink it all the time and are used to it. Caffeine doesn't work. A cup of tea or coffee may help or not. But other times I start revising, fancy a cuppa while I'm at it and then suddenly can't concentrate or get comfortable at all and lose all focus.

    Plus you won't be able to sleep after your session and be even more unfocused the next day requiring more nighttime revision etc etc.

    It depends on the person everynoe has different timezones their brain works best in.

    There are people like OP who work best in the evening/night.

    Turn off the telly and put some music on. It helps me relax and concentrate better when it's not silent but if there's noise coming from the TV that doesn't help me either. Music is a happy medium

    That can't be right for me, I'm tired in the morning, though I remember reading something about how english people prefer to work in the morning and asians prefer to work in the afternoon. I'm a bit of both so don't feel I can work properly at any time apart from maybe the afternoon, but then at that time school has tired you out.
