I must admit I was the same as you, ditractions were so easy to find. Dont think you're alone as its true of so many people.

I personally would give my self short periods of say an hour of real focus followed by a reward, for me that may be to watch some sport or play a PS game but I suspect you will have your own.

I would work out how many hours of actual focused study I needed to get the results I was after and set my plan around this.

I also found that studying in groups meant I could carry on longer, althoug less focused on the task the challenging nature and my competitive spirit was always helpful.

One other thought was that learning something then testing myself and not stopping my revising until I was achieving a set score was another way to make me really focus.

Hope this helps but Im sure everyone else is helping more :)
