I want to study and do well, really, I do.
I have full intentions of spending the whole day reading my materials but when I sit down I just can't bring myself to do it. Help me!

So even though I have a test on Tuesday and this is particularly troubling me now, this has always been a problem for me. I just can't focus on my materials. My mind wanders and I just find myself wanting to do other things even though I plan to study the entire day and I really, really want to do well on my evaluations.
How can I study better?
Am I in the wrong field? I'm fourth year biology major and I'm 1.5 years from graduating. I'm going to pursue dentistry but I don't think my marks are good enough to get in. So I'm really trying to bring it up this year, but I was really discouraged when I tried studying for one test and it came back a 65%.
How can I get it together? I guess this is more than a 'how to study better' question and more of a 'what am i doing with my life' thing. I don't know. I'm a confused 21 year old. Help me!
