    I totally understand, but people with 6+ are either resitting or take exams which contain lots of modules. I had to put up with coursework!

    I never plan say, for example, how many hours to do a day. I usually make a tick list for what to do everyday. And I've for some reason not even managed that this year. Last year for AS I was top notch with all this. I reckon it's partly due to driving lessons and a new job I've got but still no excuse. PS- got my revision books infront of me but not starting making notes :/
    I haven't started my notes yet, I'm reading through all the content again as background knowledge for when I come to do my notes, this worked for me in January.

    I don't base revision on hours, I base it on chapters of the book. I'm going to aim to be doing at least 2 chapters in depth each day for 2 exams. I have 6 exams in total

    So far zero, but i'm working on it. I have to psych myself up for it. Tomorrow WILL be my day. ugh don't you just detest revsion? it sucks all the interest out of what we have to learn, which is already minimal.

    I am abroad on holiday, and I do 3hours in the morning, 3 hours in the evening. Which at the moment adds up to doing 2.5 past papers a day, but should really be 4. I do Maths and Further Maths, so FP2 papers are just a pain. Either-way I still have time to go out during the day and have a bit of fun.

    Good luck everyone

    Ahhh I'm so confused with revision right now. I managed to finish all my biology notes so I planned to do some past papers tomorrow and chemistry notes but I don't know whether or not this is efficient as I burned out during January exams so I need to revise better this Easter. Any tips?

    The X factor oh wow haha My days off are the weekend, gives me something to look forward to when I'm revising, acts as a motivational factor to revise, (I have the evenings off too!) I also tend to get up early and start early so that I get my revision for the day finished at around 3 or 4 pm.
    Ah wow, that's great! Early riser like me Or I used to be...now I'm waking up at around 10 and not starting till 12! It's so weird!

    Agreed with xxm above and other users, I set targets not hours. Sometimes those targets will take 2 hours to achieve, and other days 6 or 7 hours but I don't mind how long it takes as long as I get them done.

    I get 5 hours of work done a day.

    Work for 25 mins, take a 5 minute break. Repeat.

    Take an hour or so break in between just so you don't lose concentration levels.

    Anyone who 'works' for 8 hours a day is just kidding themselves.

    6 a day, plus I'm doing 6 pages a day from each of my maths textbooks, but that only takes 30 mins. I have 7 exams.
    How do you do 6 hours ? 2 blocks of 3 ?

    When ever I try to revise for 2 hours or more I get hungry or get stuck go on the internet to find answers start procrasinating

    I set targets. For example today I did notes for 3 units of Psychology + I went out.
    On Wednesday and Thursday I am not going out and I plan to finish all 14 units of Psych.

    The rest of my holiday is planned out similarly so that I finish all my revision and notes for all of my subjects, and still have time to go out every now and then.

    I have 6 exams and I do about 6-7 hours in the Library a day.

    I've been going to the library so much in the past months that I'm starting to recognise loads of other 'studiers' aha

    Aiming for 8 hours a day, but I get about 5 hours of revision done. 1 hour work then 20min break usually turns into 1 hour work, 1 hour break. :rolleyes:

    I'm planning to do 13 hrs each day
    Because sleep deprivation is the route to exam success...?
