Welcome to icliniq.com.
You report difficulties with attention, poor concentration overactivity, and impulsive behavior. These may be suggestive of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
ADHD may present since childhood but is more evident in the adolescent stage, as the academic demands get higher. You say you are in school. Even though you may be intelligent, if you have ADHD it may affect your educational attainment. No wonder it is causing frustration.
ADHD is increasingly recognized in recent decades. It is not a behavioral problem, it is a neurodevelopmental condition which is treatable. ADHD can be managed by behavioral support, and if symptoms are significant, then medication (stimulants like Methylphenidate or non-stimulants like Atomoxetine) will be helpful.
I will recommend discussing with your parents, family doctor about possible ADHD and get assessed. You can also speak to pediatric or psychiatric doctors in your school regarding the same.
