Lost count of the hours but so far it's been by far my most productive week. Had my first exam today, business. Essay writing is not my specialty but this exam felt fairly good. Hopefully I can keep up the average of 96% of the ums. If not an A will do as I'm gonna drop it next year.

Now just mechanics M1 on wednesday. Shouldn't be too tough. Keep pushing yourself guys, every minute counts...

I'm in. I'm awful for procrastinating so I highly doubt I'll manage the whole 50 hours but I'll try. I have planned 6h15 per day for Mon-Fri and 18h45 for Saturday as I still have school this week and next week. From half term I should be able to achieve 50 actual hours of revision a week :/

I'm really amazed how people are making it to 50 hours. I'm aiming for 30 and that's proving to be difficult.

whats that 7 hours a day? 2.5 hours roughly per subject for 3 A levels? Sounds doable. I did about 5 hours each day when I was revising.
seriously that's way too much. I struggled for 20 hours a week for the last month before exams with 4 and a have a levels. 5 if you count general studies. No wonder i failed

do people actually read 30 - 50hours a week?!

The most I can make is like 4 hours a day, but then I'm so dead/knackered the next day that day's revision is affected.

i meant 2 hours a week.
if you're too tired, try 2 hours a day then bump it up. and have a good nights sleep and (if you can wake up) little naps during the day

I sleep forever. I do have naps in the day, but trying to reduce that as my sleeping pattern is ****ed. I sleep about 10-11 hours at nights and then regularly have ~2 hours naps in afternoon.

Not got long left til exams are over though, keep plodding on.

I've failed for these past two weeks

I'm definitely determined to start this week, seeing as my first exam is this Friday. Eeek! I hate being so unmotivated, it's not like my usual self

I'm gonna do 40 hours because I'm doing my GCSE's!

I have an idea for an incentive (reward)! When someone accomplishes a goal, we send them a PM saying congrats with a link to one of their favorite things, like a video of their fave rock band or a link to a site with cookie vouchers! Sounds bizzare but I think it could work if we tried. All you have to is post your interests. Okay so my interests: Trey Songz, ballet, violin, classical music, Jamaica...

Not necessarily, if there's a reason behind needing that much sleep, caffeine is not going to help and might make it worse.
