    Maybe the reason you lose focus is because you're uninterested in the subjects? Or it could be because of your environment. Try to get yourself in a space alone with no distractions, and make sure you feel well rested and have had enough water and something to eat. If you feel like you're going to fall asleep try splashing your face with this water or playing upbeat music that sets the pace for your work.

    If you're forgetting things, the best way to remember is verbally and by writing things down - if you're learning about an event or even vocabulary just repeat it aloud constantly and get people to test you on what you've memorized. Writing out information neatly in bright colors and highlighting also may help! Good luck

    Have you practised doing past papers? If you have not it will definitely benefit you as the questions that come up on the specimen and on old specimen would be similar.

    It is not too late there is still 2 months or maybe less- just keep going over your notes and as you have said you get bored when studying then why not find an interactive way to learn something in a fun way. Please don't give up I'm basically in the same situation as you are in but I'm trying to do my best and learning from my mistakes and taking in the advice given by everyone around me.

    By the way look after your health (I have learnt a lot from this advice). Try eating bananas as they increase your memory and go to sleep early and wake up early like at 4:00 or 4:30 (this has been proven to actually absorb all the information you have done in that time- mornings are the best).

    I wish I have started waking up in the morning before but now I see the benefit from it.

    Just start from now and you can do it!!!

    Hopefully, my advice has helped you.
