Default It's never quiet

I can't concentrate anymore and it's just too loud. I'm meant to be revising for tests (in Y13 in UK) but I can't concentrate on anything. I did a test last week and barely answered anything because they were telling me not to (normally get A*/A, ended up with a U). I don't know what to do. It was never this bad but I just don't know how to keep calm and stop it.

Hi @capital32 I don't really understand the UK schooling system but I understand that tests are really important. Is it loud outside of your head or inside of your head? Like is it external? Can you get some noise cancelling headphones? Or is it voices and stuff talking to you? In which case, can you get what they call here in the states an IEP, Individualized Educational Plan? That way you could get more time and stuff on your tests. It sounds like you might have anxiety (not a doctor, just an ordinary person) or there might be something else going on. Perhaps a trip to your GP would be in order just to rule anything out. Have you talked to your parents about what is going on with you? Are they usually helpful? If not is there another adult that you can talk to that would be helpful to you? Wishing you the best, Kit

Hello capital: I see this is your first post here on PC. Welcome to Psych Central. From what you wrote it sounds as though the School & Study Issues forum, here on PC, may be of interest to you. Here's a link to that forum just in case you haven't already found it:

The Anxiety, Panic & Phobias forum may also be of interest:

You mentioned "it" being too loud; & "they" telling you not to. If, by chance, you have a diagnosis of schizophrenia, the Schizophrenia & Psychosis forum may be one to check out as well:

I hope you find PC to be of benefit.
Speak only if you can improve upon the silence.

Hey,Maybe you should focus on the things that matter to you and learn what makes you calm even if its a cuppa tea and a few biscuits? Or listening your favourite song(this stops me from the voices) YOu should really think of talking to a doctor and they might prescribe you something for that also.DOn't be afraid to talk it out

Set up your environment to be productive for study.
a nice warm coffee
a tidy desk
spare notebooks
a Laptop or Pen
Peace & quiet.

Getting your environment right will help you revise, as long as you schedule a couple of hours at a time.
This will all help take the stress away, and get you back to those A grades! Good Luck!
