    My first exams is 27th may, will an hour a night be enough for the next few weeks?

    Yeah, it will be enough. But revising is different for everyone so let's hope that will be enough time for you.

    I guess he meant 17 of may.

    Depends . its different for everyone depending on how much work youve done, how clever you are and what grades you need.

    If you are clever then yes. But if you are like me and stupid then no. I literally do it all day, yet i still know nothing Guess everyone is different.

    Probably going to repeat things people have already told you, but people of our age have a attention span that lasts up to 20mins (for some people it's only 5) so you should revise for 20mins at a time or until you feel yourself start to think about other things then stop, and go do something else. My teachers have been telling me that I should revise for full hour blocks, but this really doesn't work for me nor for my friends so I do 10 minute slots at every 2 hours. In a day, I probably only ever max out at 30mins of revision but for me, it works. Definitely do little and often regardless of how clever you are! But how you structure this is solely up to you.
