In your age poor concentration may be due to multiple reasons like:
-Substance use: stop use if present
-Vitamin deficiency: take healthy diet
-Stress and anxiety: need evaluation. Daily aerobic exercise will help.
-Lack of interest in subject
-Poor sleeping habit: follow sleep hygiene.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Thanks for your query. The usual causes of poor concentration in academic activities would include specific learning disorders, lack of interest in the subject per se, substance use, thyroid disorders and mild variants of mood disorders. Healthy diet, daily exercises, scheduling of your daily activities, maintaining a proper sleep-wake cycle will aid in reducing your problems. If the difficulty still persists kindly contact a psychiatrist for a through assessment before deciding on any management plan.
