    How not to get distracted easily? My house tends to loud most of the time expect from when people go to bed and it's dark or when the little ones go gymnastics. I'm in year ten and tend to get distracted a lot due to hating to do revision and work with people around me and being noisy. Any tip on what I can do?

    While revising you could put headphones in and listen to music, it’ll block out the sound from around you and music will help you to be more focused on the work.

    I don't know if this would be apparent for you, but I find that if I listen to music I get all the more distracted, Id advise to find a quiet place outside to revise, such as a library.

    I do try to listen to music but occasionally do get distracted and also my house is really noisy and doesnt block the noise out. It doesnt help that I have to share a room with my little sister.

    I try music but I find I put it so loud to block the noise it gets distracting so I try to go to the library and maybe try to get up early to work as it might be the only time the house is quiet? I have to share a room too I cant do any revision late at night because the light from my lamp "wont let" my sister sleep :/
    (still trying to find a way myself)

    Hope this helped c:

    I've tried to get up early to do work but tend to get moaned at for being up to early. I sometimes stay up late to revise and use my laptop for light on my bed (I know it isnt the best thing to do but I'm limted for space) but I have the fear that my mom will come in and tell me to go to sleep, I'm going to wake my sister up or something stupid like that. What makes it even harder to revise is that I have a brother with ADHD.

    At school I tend to go and do science and maths at dinner time, since the teacher for these subjects are really nice and will allow you to revise in their class rooms.

    I am considering to go to the library but the nearest library is over a mile and half away. Which would mean I'll have to catch a bus there and back. I may end up going the libray straight after school but I dont know yet.

    I get distracted by music if I have it to loud.
