ok not to brag or anything but apart from times when i really HAD to revise (like in the few days before an exam) i hardly ever did much revision at GCSE or A-level.
This isn't because i didnt want to, but more because i have severe trouble concentrating.
Now i'm at uni, this is becoming a huge problem, and i dont know what to do.

Firstly, i dont want to feel i have some kind of condition if this is normal - i mean, people often say they cant be arsed to do work, but i dont know if that is the say as actually getting the "mental block" that i do when i try and do work.

I am the same. I often end up doing everything except studying.

There's no killer solution, but I find the following helps me get into the mindset:

I lie on the bed for a while thinking about everything I need to do. I lie there till I know what books and things I need to start revising.
Then I get up and put my mp3 on. Close doors. So you become more focused. Turn off any distractions. And just get on with it.
Try to find a room without TV or PC. Or go to a library.

I am the same, am supposed to be doing seminar work, supervision for trusts, revising and reading for a bloody long essay (10,000 words) and guess what I am on TSR!!!! I just don't know what to do and my exams are in May. I reckon am going to fail :yep: unless I just live and sleep in the library for these past 7 weeks and an half :eek:

Revising for exams last year I had to go to the library each day or I never got any work done. The fact that there was nothing else to do any everyone else was working forced me to do some work.
