    What are the best ways to revise also how to keep focused when revising.. (basically how to not be distracted)
    This information is repeated numerous times on this section.

    1,. master your core material and make revision notes or mind maps etc so you know what the course is.
    2. Practice exam questions, get them marked and read mark schemes. Id where you lost marks and practice again.

    Distractions I would say is about focus, understanding why you are doing the exams and their important. Build a routine and get motivated. It isnt for long.
