    I'm in year 11, and recently moved to a school in year 10 (it opened when I joined basically) and the first year was an absolute joke. Firstly we literally did yr7/8 work for the first 4 terms and in yr11 we started proper work, but the thing is no matter how much I try I can't concentrate, both in class and while revising, I keep either daydreaming or thinking to myself, the first 5-9 minutes is all good then I just can not think about work and I was wondering if anyone else is the same or how I could try and focus more. My GCSE 's are all in may-july and I'm worried.

    Try and make notes in lessons. This helps you to stay engaged as you need to listen for key info to write down. And then you can read over it for revision and help with homework. I know you probably don't want to waste time doing additional work at home, but maybe finding out some interesting facts about topics you are studying might help you to have more interest. I find the note taking technique really helps and then i keep a pukka pad project book with all my key notes for revising. It makes revising so much easier and less effort and when you are writing things out again it may help you. Good Luck!!

    Hey, thanks I was wondering if certain things could help concentration, my pe teacher said doing some regular exercise helps him concentrate, have you got any tips for revision? Like should I just open the book and copy down key points, or even watch YouTube videos?

    Well everyone is different in the way they learn. I prefer to sit down with some music, snacks and just copy out notes whilst reading over them. If you learn by listening then youtube videos would be a good idea. Learning something and then explaining it to someone is a good technique because it helps your brain to remember it as your brain makes connections with the info. There are so many different ways that you can experiment with until you find something that works for you, but whatever you do don't overwork. It'll make you very tired and unenthusiastic.
