    Do you spend on revision per A level subject ALL TOGETHER

    By revision i mean past papers, writing notes and learning.. or whatever you do

    i used to do like a maximum of about 5 hours per subject but this year i need to step it up a bit probably so wanted to see how many the people of TSR do.

    When I did A Levels I didn't spread my time equally across my subjects, for example Photography had no written exams so no revision, General Studies I just didn't revise for, but for English Lit I did about 15 hours and Law a bit more because I was rubbish at remembering case studies.

    Is this per month? I picked the 0-10 one. I think I do about 3-4 hours when exam periods kick in. Right now I'm doing about an hour a subject per week.

    Surely this should have 0-5 as well?
    its just like per exam all together

    I'd be in the 20-30 band then.

    I remember when I was doing my AS exams, I told my cousin who was doing GCSE's that I was doing an hour a day for a month.

    Apparently she thought I was doing an hour PER subject She was doing about 6 hours a day for three months before her exams.

    Needless to say she got 7 A*'s I didn't...
    :eek:
    How did she manage to get time for that!
    i go to sixth from 5 days a week and work 3 days a week on top of that.

    a girl at my school got the best GCSE's in england or something and she was literally locked in her room for MONTHS

    I don't know!

    She done Duke of Edinburgh Silver - and also Ten Tours (I think). Now doing Gold award.

    She also worked about 8 hours a week too. Whilst also a member of a local drama performance group, which meets every week.

    It's ridiculous, I could but I'm too lazy :headfire:
    ha sammmeeee!

    I put 41+, because during my A Levels, I did 2hrs per subject per week pure revision at the weekends (which was 8 hours altogether; 4 hours on Sat, 4 hours on Sun.. not much really) which must have added up to a lot over the year. Plus towards exams I did 2-4 hours per night of revision, so I probably did an awful lot altogether D:
