    Hello

    I am currently in my fourth year of Secondary school in Scotland and am just about to start my first National 5 prelims (the first one is tomorrow morning, actually). Unfortunately, I'm stressing out about it.

    I'd say I'm a pretty organised person. I drew up a detailed study plan weeks ago which had me doing at least 2 hours of revision each day of the Christmas holidays, and I stuck to it perfectly at first. Then I ended up purchasing a bucketload of games from Steam during their holiday sale, and I didn't get ANY revision done for at least a week.

    My problem is that I get distracted and impatient too easily. I've done little bits and pieces of studying over the past few days, but I know I haven't done nearly enough to pass my prelims.

    So... can anyone recommend any methods I can use to stop myself from getting distracted or choosing to do something I enjoy over studying? I know prelims aren't exactly that important in most subjects, but since my actual exams are fast approaching, I don't want the same thing to happen later on.
