Really just as much as I can. I'll aim for 3-4 hours a day doing past papers and writing up notes for history. I'll check next week if my school has any past papers printed out yet and then take it from there. Im going to aim to do this however procrastination is highly likely

Maybe about 6 hours a day.
Exam papers. Homework. Reading notes and testing myself. Writing essays.

Yay!

That sounds like a ton. How would you go about doing that?
9:00am to 19:00pm.

Obviously I'll have intervals where I eat or take a minutes worth of break but it's not like I've got anything else to do. I've messed around the whole year so it's time for me to buckle down, self punishment if you will.

Work experience in Opthalmology week one, then I have week two to chill.
Week one, as work experience is from 9-4, I'll probably get home at 5:30ish. About 4/5 hours sounds feasible.

Week two, as I'll be at home during the week I think I'll get about 8ish hours done. But then I guess it's not just the amount of time, but also what you do - structured, balanced revision is a lot better than procrastinating.

Past papers for maths, finish up notes for unit 5 of chemistry and biology and probably start looking at past papers for them as well. Stupid chemistry, I'll be glad, when I finish this year. So yeah... I'll be doomed if I end up procrastinating for half of the holidays.

As much as I can, I imagine there will be lots of breaks though :P I think I'm going to make a plan later for what I need to do each day. Not going to set times but going to set objectives for each day so I get everything covered. Don't have weekends either so Easter definitely doesn't feel long enough this year...

4-6 hours a day. I will also have 1/2 days a week where I'll do 2 hours and for the rest of the day I'll have a break.

Since our A-Level exams are quite soon I was wondering how much you lot are going to be revising per day. I'm personally aiming for 6hrs+ per day however I don't know if that is really going to happen.
I'm going to try and do 6-7hrs a day plus coursework on top. But I'm not timing how long stuff takes me instead I'm going to work through parts of the spec for each of my subjects

I agree that you should set work goals, not time goals. This way you might finish quicker than say, 6 hours, and you can do something recreational for the rest of the day, or do different revision. Works for me anyway, and you get more done imo.

3 hours of pastpapers in the morning (before 12pm).

3 hours of notes (anytime between 6pm and 12am)
Just wondering, in regards to past papers will you be doing them w/ notes or from already formed knowledge? (if its the latter you already know way more than I ever will before exams begin)

Every day I will try to do 6 hours (2h per subject) and exam papers starting this Monday. My teachers gave me a whole pack of them so it will really help.:woo:
My Mum says I revise waay too much though and I should chill out a bit more. I'm glad to hear other peeps are doing the same as I am though. I am always worried I'm not doing enough.:afraid:
I have a revision timetable for each module of each of my courses and I started the first units this week (Wk beg: 23rd Mar) I've broken down each module into individual topics based on the spec. It is really helping.:albertein:
Hope to hear more tips from you guys! We need all the help we can get lol. :blush:

Quality of revision > quantity of revision

It's far more better to spend 3/4 hours of the day doing a lot of productive work i.e. completing past papers/writing up essays, rather than spending 6/7 hours half halfheartedly writing up notes or staring blankly at textbooks.

That is a good point ^ I am aiming for 4 hours a day. Which is 56 hours work. Roughly 50 attempts as practise essays. Even then after the easter holidays I have 2 months worth of lessons and evenings before June exams. No stress! Trying to do 10 hours a day is really not effective and it is quite possible that someone doing 1 hour a day could get a higher grade than someone doing 5 or 6. Really work out what works for you. I know I can learn a whole lot in one hour, more than someone sat eating/ drinking/ reading notes over 8 hours.

Unplanned, but aiming for 9-3 days of work a day (taking weekends and bank holidays off).

Then I got 3- bed to chill and do stuff. Wake up early so changed and showered ready to work.

I'm going in unplanned so i don't end up under or over whelmed by how much i've done.
