    I have 5 exams in Jan & each I'm aiming for over 90%. So far I have not done much revision but i have all my revision notes done so I plan on reading through my notes & doing past papers.

    My aim is to do two hours of revision for each exam each day. Is this realistic?

    Also BUSS3 revision tips are welcome
    More than possible.
    I managed 15 hours a day just before christmas. Basically woke up bout 3pm. Started revision at the labs at 5pm. Would get home around 9am.
    And then start that again.

    EDIT: I have NO sleeping pattern though so would just revise away until i was too tired, and then would go home. So my sleeping time changed every day so my day was in a way, 26 hours or so. But it's like that anyway.

    I am struggling to focus enough for more than an hour o.o

    If can manage 10 hours effectively, then sure it will be enough. Jut remember to take it easy and relax

    It won't work seriously. The amount of pressure you're under is immense. You're better off doing 3-4 hours spread out in the day so that's like 1hr in the morning, 2 in the afternoon and 1 at night which is probably more productive!

    Yes & yes. But it's very possible to overwork yourself and "burnout". I'd advise maybe a few hours in the morning and a few in the afternoon/evening would be a lot more effective!!

    For my December AS exams i did about 2 hours a day, not nearly enough, i ended up getting B for Maths (just!), C for Chemistry, E for Biology and U for Physics, learn from my mistakes, i agree 10 hours of solid reviison will kill you, but u should really be going for a minimum of 4-5 hours per day, for ur easter exams start early, like mid March

    I'm going to do this to lol, 8 hours of sleep gives you a 16 hour day? 6 hours of eating and taking breaks and the rest revision it can't be that alienated? Hell I could go out with friends for a few hours and pull it off, I'm determined to do well! :P

    well how much time you spend definitely depends on what subjects you're doing. For any subject though, 10 hours daily is a bit too much. 7/ 6 hours is what i can usually pull off for about a month before my exams. I don't know how that'll be possible for you but have a nice christmas!
