    Depends which days really, I have 9 exams but could go up to 11 so today I'm going to do 9 hours and on the days I have work I'll do about 4-5 afterwards, also once I'm back at school I'll probably do 4 hours after school too.

    Really need to get these A's and A*'s to get into my chosen university so I'm not leaving anything to chance!

    I just cover three to four topics/chapters from each subject everyday. It is tricky though because one of my A levels is a language so I'm never sure about how to map out my progress for that. Economics is the easiest for me to revise for as the content is "fixed" if that makes sense. As for Classical Civilisation... Well let's not talk about that :/

    I did a few (rather unproductive) hours yesterday. And I've done two questions on a maths past paper today. Dammit, I really need to pull my act together and start revising but all I want to do is eat Easter eggs and watch Sherlock. I need to stop being so lazy.

    Hmm... The core maths bit is OK for me, but the applied module :eek:! I do mechanics and it is by far my hardest subject.
    Sorry to jump in here, but that sums up how I feel about maths too! I can do the core stuff pretty well, but I'm hopeless at mechanics. Truly hopeless. I dropped physics for a reason

    Dreadful. The amount of internet shopping was decent though

    Got the 4 hours I set myself to do done, almost finished reading all my subjects. Tomorrow I should be done with reading, I plan to start next week with notes, so I'm just going to keep reading over and over again before I take notes next week.

    Whole day book stays open but active revision I'd say 1/2 intensive hours a day not including day daydreaming

    Your so lucky you got 1 exam! I reckon you should be able to ace history, I did at GCSE, it was my last exam and I had a whole week that I could dedicate to it, managed my time well and managed to get 100%

    Quite well actually, got 3 different Maths past papers done and about 3-4 hours of Chemistry questions too, as well as writing out all the definitions I will need for my exams. Tomorrow I'm having a break to go watch Phantom of the Opera with a few friends which should be good, then back to the revision the next day.

    It depends on personal preference to be honest, having a set time can be a motivational factor to get on with work, for example I set my self 1 hour to do say a unit in a history book, if I get the unit done then I continue on to the next unit with the time I have left. The problem I have with setting targets is that they could either be too low or too high, meaning I could set a target too low and get it done in 30 mins, but not cover as much work as I could have covered in 1 hour. If it was too high and took me over an hour, well we all know you lose concentration after a certain period of time.
    If you have a plan of what you have to do before the exam and you cut it down into days or weeks worth then it doesn't matter that much if one day takes a little longer or a little less though. I guess everyone is different though.

    Okay, I'm probably going to sound quite stupid, but is it better to revise a bit of each subject in a day, or do one subject a day for a longer period of time?

    None yet. Too early for me to start personally, anything revised at this stage doesn't stick in my head very well. I have a lot of the actual course still to learn for Further Maths. I've only got 4 exams in summer, though, and they're all at the end of June
