    Hey!

    Advanced Higher Prelims are coming up in 3 weeks at my school and we are not given any study leave, just 4 days of crammed exams.
    I seem to have a bit of a problem in that I can't seem to concentrate or learn anything at school and so all my learning is done at home.
    I can't hear myself think when I am at school, and there's always some sort of drama in my friend group that takes up a lot of my mind there. Even when I come home from school I often feel too emotionally drained to think about my calculus.
    Without study leave I don't really have time to 'learn' let alone revise, I use my weekends for that, but I feel the weekend before the prelims is not sufficient for my preparation ( Taking four advanced highers' Maths, Mechanics, Physics, Chemistry). I guess my question is- does anyone have any suggestions what can I do to make my coursework actually go in?( when I don't have much time to myself to do so).

    Many thanks in Advance, all suggestions will be of invaluable use

    Is there a Counsellor at your school that you can speak to? It's sort of difficult for us to help you with this as it is highly dependent on your personal circumstances which we don't know.

    Oh it's nothing that requires counselling, I just find it difficult to study in places with lots of people... and noise...
