    Hi guys!
    Theres nothing i want to do more than medicine.
    Ive started revising for the exams.
    On any normal school day i do about 5 hours.
    On a weekend i do 8 hours.
    Is that enough or am i over working myself?
    Let's look at your average Saturday time window: wake up at 6:30 AM, go to sleep at 1:30 AM. By my counting, that's 19 hours of time. To only use 8 hours out of that for revision is just asking to fail your A Levels. Up your weekend revision by two hours every week until you reach 38 hours of revision per weekend, using the remaining 10 hours to sleep. Don't bother eating food, meet your nutritional needs through liquids (eg. protein shakes) that you can consume while revising.

    Weekdays are another matter; you need to be more creative. Don't be idle for a moment. In the car? Start revising. In the toilet? Start revising? In a lesson? Start revising. In fact, never stop revising. Everything you do should be revision in one form or another, otherwise you have no hope.

    Good luck.

    By 'sleep' I mean 'past papers'.
