    At the moment I'm not doing as much as I should because I haven't finished for Christmas yet and I've just got rid of loads of coursework. After I've finished (roll on tomorrow afternoon!) I'll probably do about 3 hours spread throughout the day, I won't do it all at once as I have a very short concentration span.

    None at the moment because I've had loads of coursework and stuff to do, but I broke up today, so starting tomorrow I'm aiming to do about 5 hours a day. I have 3 exams.

    4-5 hrs a day. That suits me. Maybe half the time spent on revision, the other half doing past papers. Strangely, doing past papers before you've revised properly can be beneficial in jogging your memory and taking info in when you actually come to revise.
    I'll probably do this 5 days a week, and not everyday (need to make something of the holidays!).

    I procrastinate FAR too much. i was planning to start yesterday... but i couldnt be bothered.. then i was going to start today... but to be honest i cant work when my house if a mess... and its a tip at the moment. Im just so lazy!

    I don't really think it's the quantity of revision that's important, it's more about what you actually do with your revision time. (well, thats my excuse anyway! :rolleyes: ) I just can't imagine slaving away for endless hours a day because I reckon that by midday i'll be so knackered anyway! And besides, it is called a 'holiday' after all, I say we might as well use it!

    It varies really, depends on the motivation for the day and the time i wake up. But it would average to about 3-4 hours.

    I don't usually tend to measure it by hours, more about which modules i have done and topics.

    I seem to start off well, with 1-2 hours. Then I spend another 2 or so but I only get as much done in those 2 as one hour before.

    Unless exams are really close I can't work for too long. But my 3 hours or so now will increase more and more once into January.

    I'm also doing more than I would do now usually because I'm going away for a week and know I wont get as much done then...

    Past papers before knowing a topic well is good because it forces you to think hard... if you're just making notes you keep looking to save yourself, but if you can't you do it on your own... and if I do it that way I tend to remember it.

    That said I'm yet to bother with any past questions...

    Not enough by far. I only have one exam in January and am doing practise papers (they don't take long though) I really need to focus more and not get distracted with my computer etc. I think I may ask my parents to confiscate it for the June exams. At least that way I'll probably focus more!

    I've done bugger all for A2, apart from unit 4 chemistry as I'm taking that exam in Jan.

    (Altough I do have unit 4 economics and business in jan as well, but that's not really a hard unit at all, so I havn't done anything on it)

    I'm still in chill mode. Today I sat on the sofa for half an hour and read biology, but nothing that actually constituted revision. After Christmas, I start! Hopefully.
