    For a C student ?

    For a C student ?
    What do you mean by C student? You expect to get Cs? Don't limit yourself - aim for higher and you might surprise yourself! Aiming or settling for Cs doesn't mean you should revise less - instead you should revise intending to do the best you possibly can - which could be an A! So no amount is too much!

    She means she is on C's now

    And just learn it all and be interested and intrigued by your subjects and do all past papers

    Revise as much as you can. The only point where it is too much is when you become tired or really stressed due to losing focus. At this point- take an hour or two for a break and then repeat. Have a few days to relax here and there, but only occasionally. Treat yourself at the end of a long day/week of revision. Don't make it a chore; reward yourself!

    Do 40 minutes revision followed by a 10 minute break etc. Get as much as you can done but don't burn yourself out. Revision is a marathon not a sprint.
