study like you wont believe. There are of course people who do not study much over the holidays, but they all study. Those that do not, fail an get kicked out, simple as (at least in cam, if you dont get an hons, they kick you out). Then there are those that study, but not as much as they should, and get aroun a 3rd. If u do, your DOS will be on your back and the threat of expulsion is v real. Everyone else studies about 5-hrs in the holidays every day. In the term time the avg time for sciencey students after lectures + labs (most finish at around 5) is 2.5 hrs.

How do i know this? my brother is at cambridge

I did about 12 hours over the last vacation, and maybe a few days worth of background reading (only really of interest for a course next year though). I blame this forum and lack of sleep through the previous term .

A lot of people do a hell of a lot more though. I have all of tomorrow, I'll be fine!

I'd hazard a guess at the average being 3/4 hours a day.
