    How do you guys cope with revision when there are so many distractions? Does anyone have any advice on how to concentrate during revision sessions because I need to use my phone research purposes, so it’s really hard to concentrate with your phone around.

    personally for me, i download any resources i need, i do maths further maths and physics so the only thing i need are answers online, but i can usually download what i need through pdf's. I download everything for everything i plan to cover and i may need whether or not i plan to use it.

    I also have an internet free music app where i downloaded some relaxing instrumental music, mainly piano cause i find it really helps me concentrate although most of the time i usually listen to normal music, the piano music is for when i REALLY need to concentrate

    Lastly i work alone in my room, my desk faces a wall so i cant look at anything distracting, and i disconnect my phone from the internet, it doesnt bother me since i hardly use my phone anyway.

    If you NEED your phone, do your research first, screenshot everything you need if you cant download it, then cut wifi from your phone, thats what i do and i dont know my wifi password off by heart, my phone hasnt been connected to the internet for like 4 days now since i use my laptop for the internet if i need it.

    Hopefully any of my points helped Good luck, not getting distracted is super hard so i feel ya

    I know it is an often stated thing, but back in the day, before smart phones, we were able to research. And exams were harder in my day. And I've got all my own teeth.
