How long do A2 students revise for each day? watch


    On a weekday: 2 hours for homework, 4 hours for revision.
    On a weekend: As long as I need for homework, max 8 hours for revision

    Started revision since December, but I never ever read ahead.

    When I have a "clear" day (i.e. one when I have no school and am not going out) I try splitting the day into morning and evening sessions.

    The morning sesh contains about 4 hours of revision, while the evening one has around 3, excluding breaks, lunch/dinner, etc. That's about 7 good hours of revision in total

    about 2 hours a day during a week at college, usually about 4-5 on weekends depending on how tired I am. During holidays i always crank it up to about 7-8 hours

    Today, 0 hours
    Usually, 1-2 hours in the middle of the year. I'll bring it up to 2-4 hours in March.
    Oh and I honestly can't revise everyday, it hurts. I'm doing biology, chemistry and physics.

    I do a similar amount to this......Think it gives you time to do other things also.

    But ive been spending hours on this essay. How would you al answer this

    1. To what extent was it America’s failure to properly understand legitimate Sovietsecurity interests that brought about the Cold War?

    I would start by making a list of what the Soviet security interests were!

    Yes. Maybe you need to break the essay into sub-questions:

    - What were the Soviet security interests?
    - Were they 'legitimate'?
    - Did America fail to properly understand these interests?
    - Did this failure lead to the Cold War?
    - If it didn't, what other factors caused the 'Cold War'?

    Good luck with the essay - sounds like a tough one!

    I've been doing Biology straight for 2 days because it is what I'm most behind in. (Dislike Biology)
    I'm confident with maths A2, finished the whole book (bar integration) and have done most past paper questions. I just go through the madasmaths booklets when I'm bored because it is the most fun. :blushing:
    Chemistry is good, will start that soon.

    4 strong hours, then is turns wishy washy.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
