    Well I've been doing 5 hours a day in 45 minute slots i could NEVER work for 4 hours straight, my brain would be mush and nothing would be take in.

    Also i read that you should do no more than 2 subjects a day so 4 is quite a lot. But if your comfortable with what your doing then fair enough. Are you leaving anytime to relax? except those 2 hours?

    Too much for sure.

    You will have burnt yourself out by the time the exams come.

    Are you even absorbing everything you learn?

    This. If you can keep up with it without burning out before exams AND retain all the information you process during your revision time then go for it but, more often than not this isn't the case and you will be "revising" inefficiently, especially with the lack of breaks in your morning session..

    Not really, it depends how you use your time. Some people find making notes useless because they end up copying from a text book. So long as it isn't cramming 2 nights before the exam, I think 3 hours a day of proper concentrated work can be very useful, so long as the 3 hours isn't back to back and has breaks in between. I can't concentrate for more than an hour at a time; my concentration levels will decrease and that'll be a waste of time.

    No it isn't too much. There is no "too much" only too little (although everything is relative). Put in the work, you get the results you want. Simple as that.
