I have problems revising i find that when im revising i side track really fast.. its a bad habit like if i'm on the computer revising i will just go on to games and play games fro like an hour or so. or if i'm revising with paper and pen i end up looking at things and thinking wow i never realised that... Can Anyone Help me?

oh cool... Ahaha im the same like in school i like highlighting everything else in a different colour but the key points in another and like the teacher will go past and look at me like okay thats just weird... i find that the colour Red and yellow are a great way to revise for example:
Red marker or pen and yellow paper... it helps you revise better

Dw .. its normal. I have the same problem. Iv got a test tomorrow , but you need to remember to put your head down and revise when you need to. The best way is NOT to revise on the computer. Thats what i do , and revise in the funnest way possible. this might sound really babyish but iv got all my coloured fineliners out around me , and coloured paper and im basically just making notes. I HAVE got my laptop logged on but thats just 2 guide me when i get stuck on something. HOPE I HELPED :D

Usually when I'm doing homework, and I need to do things on the computer - whether it is research or just typing-  I get up the required sites which I need to complete the set task and then disable the internet (making sure it doesn't automatically log in when I click it). Then, I have to go and hunt for the password to be able to access it again, which I usually can't be bothered doing but I concentrate more.

Admittedley, I still get distracted, I end up looking at patterns on the wallpaper :P

There are certain downloadable programs which can block websites for you if you find them distracting. There're a few things on http://99u.com/articles/6969/10-Online-Tools-for-Better-Attention-Focus or http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/addicted-google-4-ways-block-addictive-websites-work/ which are supposed to stop you getting off-task when using a computer.

I know that feeling so well it hurts! I sometimes find myself doing the stupidest things imaginable instead of doing my work. I'm kinda worried my brain is just losing the plot. I even tried to do my work in the same room as my parents but I still manage to get myself and them distracted as well. Its mostly youtube for me, I am loving gangman style right now the video is amazeballs. Unfortunately chemistry is less thrilling.

I had a chemistry test last week and spent around an hour and a half counting each little disc of paper in my hole punch. o.o
