    Not long, probably 1-2 hours at most without having at least a little break.

    What do you mean like a whole revision session or like how long before my exams did I start revising. Anyway revise all you want if it isn't a plan to suit your individual type of learning then you are ****ed mate.

    3 hours aided by several cans of Monster. During that period though I probably took like little mini-breaks of just sitting there doing nothing.

    It's more the concentration aspect. Your brain can only do so much on one thing for so long.
