    Hi

    Got mocks coming up!!

    Haven't revised yet!

    Is it possible to reivse 6-10 hours a day? If so how?

    I have 7 subjects to revise for.

    What I was thinking of doing was if I did

    From 9-2 do 40 minutes of work an hour = 240 minutes
    From 3-6 do 30 minutes of work an hour = 120 minutes
    From 7-9 do 20 minutes of work an hour = 60 minutes

    Which equates to 420 mintutes = 7 hours. Will that work and is the reasnable?

    Please help!

    Thanks guys!

    Really. Don't bother. You won't manage it, and you'll feel massively guilty/stressed as a result. I found I end up doing far less work on my "blitz days" than I do when I set my self achievable goals I know I can do.

    GCSE's? seriously, you dont need to revise. the whole things a joke. never revised for the mocks, got a mixture of Cs, Ds, Bs, and 1-2 A's.
    My actual Gcse's were A*A*A*A*AAAABC, which isnt too bad. Revised some subjects 2 weeks before, some not at all.

    It's probably possible; certainly not advisable though! Too much.

    they're just mocks. You dont need to do that much revsion. You can do about 2 - 3 hours of revision a day during the holidays if you want to. I did all my revsion the night before and I got all As and A*s. If I had done revsion before the mocks (we didn't have time because we kept getting more and more homework) i could have got all A* but when it comes the the real ones I'll make sure I get them then

    Even if you work for 6-10 hours, you'll probably end up achieving just as much as you do when you study for 2-3 hours.

    Unless you can manage your time well, avoid distractions and be able to deal with actually learning it, rather than cramming in as much as you can. Ie. I find it a million times better to learn something, then say review it later that day, then the next day so it sticks.

    You'll need a lot of pro plus and red bull as well.

    Edit: Just seen this is for mocks. No way you need to revise that much. Go over the main points, if that. You probably won't do well, but you have MONTHS to revise and you're much better of learning it slowly but thoroughly. You'll probably have forgotten most of what you do now by June anyway.

    It is quality not quantity that counts. Revising for 6-10 hours a day will just make you resent your work.It is obviously possible but certainly not advisable or even desirable. I got a mixture of A stars and A's back at GCSE by doing a couple of hours work each day.

    don't stress over your gcse's A Levels are yet to come and are much harder.

    Considering there are 24 hours in a day, it is certainly possible to revise for 6-10 hours daily.

    It would be better to split the time up into small sessions with regular breaks, rather than doing it all in one chunk.

    I didn't even revise for my GCSEs (I got A*A*AAAAAAABB, which is shabby by TSR standards, but I think I did okay..), and you're going this hardcore for your mocks? :lolwhut:

    Don't bother, do an hour or two a day if you really want- but I'd just relax this Christmas, save the academic rape for A-level.
