This issue is important to me because I end up yawning in every lesson even if I’m not tired. Why is that? Normally this is mostly caused because people don’t get enough sleep or don’t work hard enough.

Is it me or the teacher?

People always suspect that the student is the main culprit because they are not interested in the lesson. That said, the teachers don’t always motivate pupils to concentrate in lessons.  

So much homework 

The main reason why students fall behind in lessons is when they are put off by the amount of homework they receive.  Researchers present that “56% of the students in the study cited homework as a primary stressor in their lives.” 

Tests generally get frustrating

 in 2014, survey results were revealed on how pupils react to a test. According to staff, the tests "destroyed pupils' confidence". This shows how students lose their self-esteem.

The hole of revision

 Most students have a habit of procrastination and avoiding revising for exams. It is recommended that students revise for 70 minutes every day. This, on the other hand, gives students limited time with which to concentrate on a specific subject.
