During the past two weeks i have only revised for 1 1/2 hours during one day. Will this be significantly detrimental on my exams? i have decided to condense my revision throughout the three week lead up to English Literature on May 24th and continue on revising in between examinations through Sociology June 24th.
I wouldn't worry too much about it, youve got time during study leave and youll be doing revison in school and stuff
Well, I think that it strongly depends on the person. Some people can work just for an hour a day and still get A's whereas others need to work 4-5 hours for the same grade.
i wouldn't worry too much. i've only started revising these easter holidays, and my first exam (science: phyisics) is on may 2nd, and i haven't even really started revising for physics!
so good luck, but remember you MUST revise as much as possible durign the easter holidays! just keep in min you will have a long summer ahead of you!
It depends on what kind of person you are, as others have said. Some people are capable of studying the morning of the exam and come out with an A, while others have to put in consistant effort. Some other people are capable of doing no work and getting a good grade, but still has to put in a lot of effort just to feel comfortable. Judging solely by your predicted grades in your sig, it looks as though you're pretty intelligent and I think that starting hardcore revision after Easter would be okay. I would advise spending more time on Maths though, since it appears to be your weakest subject (again, only going by your sig, sorry if it's wrong or anything).
I don't mind sacrificing my Easter holidays, because I know that I have a long summer ahead of me where I can do anything I want, and I don't want to be disappointed on August 24th. That said, I haven't been doing that much revision either....
I still haven't started revising for anything... still got outstanding coursework that I want to do before I start any revision..
I think balance is important. Since the beginning of Easter, I've been alternating between revising and er...wasting time, like now. I'd revise for an hour, surf the net for the next, revise again for an hour, read for an hour, have a meal, revise for an hour, play a computer game for an hour...
That way, it doesn't feel like so much-and you'd be surprised how much you can get done. I'm averaging 6-7 hours and sometimes 8. Even better, it goes in without being too tiring.
