In brief: Limit distraction
If you are healthy & rested look at how & where you study & see if you can make success more likely.
Kitchen table(people wandering thru)bed(might make you sleepy)media on(distracts). Try a place out of the family traffic flow.Limit media to comfort(music).Get a hr timer with an alarm and set for 50min intervals. Study for 50min, relax & enjoy a break & reset as needed.

i agree...first find a "quiet" place to study then allot time for it. Leave all media(social, gaming, etc.) anywhere else but where you are going to study. Put some quality time in; and take 15 minute breaks as needed(just like work). Rinse and repeat as Dr. Ferguson advised.

In brief: Find the cause
Kids with allergies have more problems in school than those who don't.
Certain nutritional deficiencies can interfere with focus & too much sugar, not enough protein can also interfere. Medical conditions like anemia and hypothyroidism can be involved too.
