    Why do you think no social life is a bad thing? If I enjoy studying maths rather than going to the pub, is that such a bad thing? Maybe it's not what you would want to do with your life, but thankfully we are all able to decide our own paths. Would you say the same thing to a professional athlete? The fact I will get a fat pay off from the time I invest now is sort of irrelevant.

    Not started yet. Will start with notes and small revision during April and will begin to hammer the past papers in May. Let the fun begin.

    For 25 exams, no not really. Depends though on how confident you are on some of them.

    Do you have some sort of deep seated issues. Even if I was working just to make a better life for me and my family would that be scummy? I don't really give a damn what you think of me, I just don't like the idea you would be putting kids off from studying and bettering themselves just because your mother didn't cuddle you as a child.

    As some people have said before; targets are more efficient per unit time than setting hours, but it's best to combine targets in a schedule of specific goals (e.g, today I have 1 hour to do the born-haber cycles in my calculations practice book, this gives me incentive to do it at a speed reminiscent of exam speed).

    Just setting 2 hours of "chemistry" is too vague and you'll end up spending some of that time just deciding what to choose in it!




    I'm doing chemistry, biology and psychology and I'm predicted A*AB in that order, and I do a 9-4.20 college day with additional 2.5 hours in the evening, I've been revising since January at this pace, it's working well

    I have started revising a bit, but at my college we're having mocks now for some reason (only in one/two modules per subject), so I have to prioritize a bit which is annoying.

    My issue is exam technique though: it's just awful, especially for Maths.

    P.S: I'm doing ASs if you're wondering .

    I am currently doing my GCSE's also.

    I spend 30 minutes on 4 different subjects each night.

    I spend 2 hours a week on each subject. 1 hour doing revision maps, 1 hour past paper.

    I wouldn't panic yet, my exams start on the same day and you must realise you've got 2 full weeks. Thus, the world is your oyster. Do not over do it.

    I set targets not hours.
    I like this. When they told us to revise at school and at uni, my usual response was 'I don't revise, I become an expert.'

    In truth, I'd spend maybe two hours distilling everything into bullet points. Then I'd find ways to make them funny and therefore able to stay in my mind. Then I'd record myself reading them and just listen to them on repeat for a week.

    I agree, although it takes practice to truly understand something .

    I agree actually. If you can understand something, even if you forget what it is precisely, you can bull**** pretty effectively :P.

    This terrifies me... I've got 10 exams this summer, I'm doing somewhere between 1 and 3 hours revision a day, depending on my day; I don't have much of a concentration span. How do people even find the time to do 6+ hours?

    They must stay up to like 1 aha! Revise efficiently and you'll be fine. I can learn a topic in less than 2 hours if I actively learn eg. Teach somebody, creating a poster way (brilliant when you need to lean biology cycles), continuously testing yourself. Better than reading notes
