    Its not really about how much you need to do its until you understand it and feel confident with every question
    Revision time changes for everyone for example somedays may be like:
    1 core 3 paper
    1 statistics paper
    2 hours of chemistry revision (reading up making notes and doing exam questions out the book)
    2 hours of Physics Question and notes

    Or could be:
    2 Core 3 papers
    2 Statistic papers
    4 Hours of chemistry or Physics

    Or:
    1 hour/paper

    even:
    Absolutely nothing

    I Do all of these depending on my day and if i have work on or i may want to see some friends. The amount you do changes constantly there is no right amount

    Its not about how you get to the pot of gold, its making sure you beat the leprechaun up on the way :L

    I am dealing with a bad economics teacher since 2 years. We had one last year and she had a very bad accent which made the stuff she spoke non-understandable. And even if you try to understand what she tries to speak...the way she speaks makes it soooo boring. She talks as if she has just woken up from bed and someone is forcing words from her mouth. Laters, she got retired and now we have a young woman with the bad accent and gestures that I cant help not laughing on. It is merely impossible for me to concentrate in what she is teaching because I am busy in giggling and laughing at her.

    But I have still managed to score a B in economics without any extra tutions. And I guess its not that bad !!

    And if I can..so can you. Because I believe that all of us are here with the same mental capabilities and the same ball of brain...the way we use it varies.

    Well done I still remember teachers like that getting bullied in secondary school but A-level chemistry is probably one of the hardest A levels and you need a teacher for it.

    "argh dont wana start revising yet. We got ages yet ain't we? ok im going to start tomorrow". People learn differently is my point. I learn better by cramming everything the last minute, you may be different. Only you can answer that question!!!

    No wonder you get A's.
    According to your Academia, you don't study Business Studies, thus you have no right to make that comment.

    Precisely, I take the appropriate A-Level substitute: economics.

    Business Studies is a soft A-Level.

    Don't be so arrogant. As I said, you have no right to make such a comment without first taking the subject yourself.
