    1- 9 hours seem a bit low... There's gonna be a lot of more than 10 hours vote (before it was changed to per day....)

    Whoever is seriously interested in getting good grades would study more than 10 hours for sure. Considering it is divided into 14 days !!

    Your options should have been:

    0
    less than 5
    5-10
    10-15
    15-20
    20-30
    30-40
    40+
    op must of meant over each day

    p.s. lol at 10hrs a day.

    If you wake up at 9, start revision at 10am, you'll be going until say 6. Then have dinner and you still hae 2hrs to go. Considering you suposed to take a break every hour or what ever it is, it would actually be after 8pm by the time you finish, then it nearly back to bed and do it all over again.

    Don't talk ****.

    I usually feel comfortable with 2-4 hours a day and one day off a week.

    When I was at school I did:

    Weekdays: 9-12 2-5 7-10

    Saturday: 9-12

    Sunday: Off

    The hardest part of revision is getting into a routine. Once you're in the swing of it, it's not too bad.

    Good luck for your exams.

    I understand the routine part. When I was younger I wasted my life playing this game called Runescape. Over Summer one time I tried to go for one of the hardest goals, 99 Runecrafting, I did 12 hours a day over two weeks. The first few days are horrible but then you get into a swing and it's not too bad.

    I regret playing that game but it certainly taught me how to sit down for hours doing the same thing over and over again!

    I plan on Easter being my last holiday before some serious revision.

    Edit: Would someone care to explain what's wrong with my work ethic? It's always worked for me in the past.

    I often do that too. I plan on doing loads of revision but never actually do it. I'm going to REALLY try and change my attitude in this 'revision season'.

    Damn, I just accidently voted 10 hours and realised it was over a day.

    I'll probably revise about 3 hours each day, probably taking a day or two off every week.
