    I don't know whats wrong with me. I sit down ready to get some work done, 10 minutes in and i get distracted. It could be randomly staring into space, laptop etc. I usually study with my laptop as i use certain revision sites/YouTube tutorials to help me. It takes a while to get back into doing work and i end up not accomplishing anything.
    I've tried revision timetables but i never follow them.

    I don't feel i've done much work since Monday and its making me feel really bad. I don't want to fail but it's so hard to concentrate.
    Any ideas?

    I know what you mean. I've sat down now to study FP1 and I've just drifted onto my laptop.
    Just try and use some scare tactics, e.g. seeing how many weeks it is til your first exam, and drum it into yourself that you NEED to revise. Or leave notes around the house, telling yourself to go revise.
    I do this and it reminds me that I actually do need to knuckle down!

    That happens to me too, i work better when i know there's a deadline.
    I literally did no revision in December and started doing an average of 6 hours a day and exams were about 3 weeks away and I came out with good results

    I plan on starting my unit 4 exams today though to spread the workload
