    I've been doing about 4hrs of revision a day for the past 6 days… If I keep at this level until the end of the holidays, and then if I do about 4-6hours of revision on the weekends and 1-2hours on weekdays, do you think I'd be able to get A*s for the majority of my exams?

    I always plan to do so much everyday, but then I go off track and end up doing less than expected (e.g. I was meant to be doing history revision rn but honestly I'm gonna fall asleep if I continue history revision). So I feel like I could do more revision and if I don't I won't get as good grades as I hope to get… :/

    I'm peeing myself I'm so scared for these exams I feel like I'm running out of time so bad

    How much revision are you guys doing?

    As long as it's effective revision hours don't matter. However, I would recommend that the nearer you get to an exam, the more should you should start working and revising. So even weekdays should be 2/3 hours at least.
