    Can somebody help me correct these sentences?

    1) I put my phone on silence mode when i sleep because i do not want to get/receive any sort of interruption.

    2) If you don't study, you will not be able to catch up with the class/lesson thought in class.

    3) Did you break 20 plates in one incidents/occasion or in several occasion/incidents.

    4) I have started my revision for all the final exams or i have started revising for final exams.

    I put my phone on silent mode when I go to sleep because I don't want to be interrupted.

    I'm not sure what you mean by this. You would only need to "catch up" with a class if you weren't there (for example, because you were sick and missed the class). Perhaps you mean:
    "If you don't study, you won't be able to keep up with the class (or the classes)".


    3) Did you break 20 plates in one incidents/occasion or in several occasion/incidents.

    Did you break 20 plates all at the same time, or at different times?!

    4) I have started my revision for all the the/my final exams or i have started revising for final exams.

    As marked above, "my revision" and "revising" are both OK, but I would say "the final exams" or "my final exams".
    Please see my notes above.
