Can you define exam technique, I mean what do people mean when they say ' you have to work on exam technique' does that mean learn the mark schemes ?
Something along those lines. Do as many past papers you can, multiple times even until you understand what the examiners want, look through examiner reports etc.

6 hours a day seems about right for me. I have 4 exams coming, so it's not too bad. Last year I was on 11 exams, so I had to revise for about 8-9 hours.

Ive started making up chemistry questions and it seems to be helpful.
That's great, well done

Scientific subjects like Chemistry are the best to make up questions for, because you can practically work next to the mark scheme and improve your answer in minutes.

Working on your timing, finding out how much you'd need to write for a certain number of marks etc.

You don't have to learn off by heart but you should get a rough idea as to what sort of points must be made for that sort of questions. They ask same question every few years with different wording and they often have same points that must be made.
What subjects do you do?

A2; Maths, Economics and Physics, I think I should focus on exam technique for Physics but thanks for your tips. If you can share any specific tips for my subject exams I'd appreciate. What subjects do you do?

Oopsies you are actually older XD
I'm doing maths, further maths, chemistry and physics
I might be getting U myself next year who knows...I'm getting high A in my AS atm though and that is from knowing the mark schemes, especially in chemistry and physics

Ahahaha that's pretty cool! I did Chemistry last year and dropped it this year, I achieved AABB during AS however I didn't focus on knowing the mark schemes I focused on understanding the concepts inside out which meant lots of notes and it was very time consuming! but this year I want to i learn to implement both methods. What do you mean when you say 'knowing the mark schemes' ?

I should be doing 4 hours a day, but I'm going to build it up. I'll start tomorrow with an hour, then build it up so by the second week of the holidays I'm doing 4 hours a day. I keep putting off starting because I have no clue how to revise for my subjects.

I focus on a different subject everyday - in the morning I start off with revising from my notes, making flash cards, going over the syllabus, etc.
Around evening time I start one or two past papers to see whether I actually learned something that morning xD
I can't study during the day (noon time - afternoon) - the only time that works for me is morning and night! >.<

Three hours a day, cautious about burning out too soon
