    My Separate Science exam has been postponed. I was supposed to do it last week Thursday, but they moved it Thursday 28th (next week Thursday). This is a really important exam.
    I also have a spanish exam to revise for which is on Monday, but I find I get really bored when I study and get distracted by Facebook :/

    How many hours should I be doing everyday?
    Thanks.

    An hour or two? But spread it out, don't do it all in one.
    and don't do more than three or four, otherwise you'll stop taking it in and it'll just waste time so that you'll have to revise it again. ;}

    Well, if your not at college (eg study leave) 4 or 5 a day. If you are at college still, I would be doing more than 2 or 3.

    You could do as many hours as you need. It depends on different things, like do you know most things or do you need to learn them. If you are revising then you need less time than if you are learning new things. Past papers are a very good way of looking at what you know and what you still need to go over.

    Good Luck!!

    Go to the library and you should study 2/3 hours a day.

    Start with ten and if that's not enough increase to fifteen. I would not recommend doing more than 24. If that sounds harsh, try thinking about working ten hours a day in a thankless, minimum wage job for a faceless corporation, but only until your job is "evaluated" and you are made redundant because some HR lady made a mistake in her spreadsheet. :woo:

    Now, good luck with your revision!

    Have you tried going to a local library?
    I do that when revision is needed because at home there is facebook/a full fridge/tv and games...
    Where as I find because everyone in the library is working or reading it is a better environment to get really stuck in
    all the best

    Nah. Well it depends on your subjects, for a subject you find difficult I would spend around 3 hours. An easy one I wouldnt bother until an hour before the exam.

    What I used to do (because I got so distracted by facebook and the internet) is half an hour revision, then half an hour break, then repeat this through the whole night. I ended up doing about 3hrs revision altogether, which was still effective and got me good grades, but I could still spend a lot of time on Facebook which was great!

    It totally depends on you..
    Dont wear yourself out but do enough that you take in. some people can go through GCSES cramming it in in the last 6 weeks and doing nothing all year before and still get A*'s others can work at it and get B's so it up to you and how good at the subjects you are. you generally know how much revision you need though
