    There were studies shown to prove that concentration levels dipped greatly after 20 minutes of learning. However, obviously people would use this as an excuse to revise less and its relative to each person.

    The reason why you have 1+ hour lectures/classes in schools is because it would cost waaaaaaaaayy too much time, money and effort to have multiple, exact 20 minutes of learning time scheduled. Besides, it's likely that in secondary school, etc, you would only get 20-40 minutes of effective learning due to slow starts/wasted time handing out crap/generally students misbehaving/blah blah.

    Hardcore; maybe 1 and a half hours. But I've revised while having little 5 minute breaks and procrastinating a little for 8 hours straight once. Wouldn't recommend it but I got an A in the exam

    You must be new here :awesome:

    I actually find it easier to revise in large chunks - I have an espresso, stick some earplugs in and then revise for two to three hours at a time. But I don't think this works for most people.

    Three hours all in one go, after that my brain can't take anymore in so it's a waste of time for me to do much more.

    I don't normally do more than 2 hours in one go, unless I'm running out of time.

    On a good day I can work for 2-3 hours concentrating without a break. Longest time in a day, probably 12 hours study time with a few half an hour breaks. Then again this is for second year university maths exams.
