Parents making so much noise, can't revise properly. Watch

I am trying to revise effectively and can only do some effective revision when the noise is absolutely minimal. Problem is that my parents make so much noise, my mum makes an awful lot of noise with my little brother who has Down's syndrome and my dad watches the TV next door from where I can hear the sound. Whenever I tell them to turn the noise down my mum tells me to get lost and my dad simply ignores me. And the ironic thing is that whenever I end up getting bad grades my parents always have a go at me saying why have I got such bad grades and that I am **** and all that, ehm excuse me but you didn't allow me to revise properly with all the noise you have been making so why should my results be a shock to you?
Hearing their noise all the time simply makes my brain so attached to it that whenever I revise I concentrate more on the noise they make than actually focusing on the learning material.
Should I get some earblockers instead? Like I am being serious, really good ear blockers would certainly help.

Libraries tend to close after late evenings, I sometimes revise during lunchtimes, sometimes in the evenings and sometimes both at the same day. Library times are not flexible with me and I also need to use the computer at times and many people at my library use computers is not guaranteed there will always be a free computer for me.

Well I guess you need to get yourself some headphones then 🎧.
You can also go and work at a coffee shop when you don’t need the computer.

Ear plugs or noise cancelling earphones may help, or you could always go to a local library or a quiet coffee shop.

I agree with noise cancelling headphones, and there are some great YouTube videos that you can listen to that will help. Just search for "white noise" or "background noise" and try a few. You'll find one that suits you no problem.
