I had similar problems at your age but only got diagnosed 3 months ago (6 months into my first year of college) and it will save you so much stress to go to a psychiatrist and make a plan for treatment and accommodations now rather than later. School/life will only get harder so the more proactive you can be the better.
Some doctors do not believe girls can have ADD so go in prepared for frustration and keep a log of frustrations and problems you experience die to the disorder. This will help them diagnose and help you faster. Good job noticing this and acting on it so quickly, good luck!
