    During these Easter holidays I'm currently aiming for 8 hours a day for my 3 AS levels. The minimum I do is 5 hours. If I don't do much revision in a day then I end up being awake all night feeling guilty and wanting to work :sigh:
    woah how do you even fill that time with 3 AS levels

    Threads like these make me want to die.
    definitely doesn't represent the majority, I don't think. Doing 12 hours of revision a day is absolute madness

    Like 2-3 hours but panic is setting in so it's going to be in the region of 9 hours. Hopefully. I will try but let's be honest, it won't happen... *cries*

    That is quite successful (;
    My holidays haven't started yet but I literally only went to school for an hour today

    I'm panicking right now reading all of these posts about revising 8 -12 hours a day... I'm about to go on a holiday to the US for two weeks so I think I'll only get 2 hours in a day if I'm lucky... AHHH!

    Ohhh I'm a little jealous- I really wanted to take English lit but my school only offered lit and land which I wasn't so keen on. I'm taking AS Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Economics and Business, so I have 11 exams between the 6th of May and 10th of June! It's strange how yours are so much later than mine. Really starting to freak out as I'm going away for two weeks and won't have much time at all to revise then.

    A2 exams start later than AS - just how it is.

    As for me, looking to average 5 hours per day over Easter, and my lovely calculator tells me I'm at 5.17h/day so far. Well done me. Quite a miracle, in my eyes. I've so rarely been able to get myself to work, let alone in such a sustained fashion.

    woah how do you even fill that time with 3 AS levels
    I study French, German and Maths, so if I do 8 hours a typical day will be:
    -1 hour German speaking (split into 2 half hours)
    -1 hour French speaking (split again)
    -1 hour German topical vocab and essay phrases.
    -1 hour French topical vocab and essay phrases.
    -1 hour French or German grammar.
    -2 hours core 2.
    -1 hour core 1 or decision.

    I have had a lot of time off this year though, which is why I now only study 3 subjects, so I feel like I need to work exceptionally hard to achieve my target grades.

    You're lucky you didn't take English lit, it is so hard at a2, so much quotes to memorise! It's because a2 exams starts later, but we stay in school for longer. Maybe revise on the journey there? Or get up early for revision time? Either way don't panic and enjoy your holiday!
