2 exams, doing about 2 hours a day, though I want to increase it as I'm being guiltily lazy for most of the day. I think starting tomorrow I'll do four a day.

Well I don't have January exams - instead we're doing them all in the summer. I only have mocks in January...
However, I'm revising a lot: 6 - 7 hours a day, or the odd 10 hour revision period (with breaks of course )

I never understand why you guys can be a bit laid back...The way I see it: these are your first exams. So it's better you leave nothing to chance and smash the exam through and thoroughly. Better to overestimate these exams than underestimate. You don't want to have to resit in the summer :sadnod:.

I think this January is the last cycle of January series exams? Correct me if I'm wrong

Alas, if you know what your doing and don't need excessive amounts of revision, that's also awesome

Thankfully I only have one exam this time, I started revising early but now, with the exam 2 weeks away, I'm not doing anywhere near as much revision as I should be :\ I just keep getting distracted by everything!

That's correct. We are the last ones to do Jan exams so i guess that's more of a reason to work your butt of now. We are known as the 'legacy year' funnily enough.

Three exams. I'm doing a few hours a day, but it's not always that much. I'm feeling pretty confident because I've been doing light revision since October.

Three exams. I do revision pretty much all day but with far too many breaks and room for distraction so in total it's probably about 3 hours hardcore revision at most.

5 exams and need to do a lot of hours!

Have done bits and pieces here and there but it's not helping one bit.

Need to get a move on.

From tomorrow, extreme revision is on the cards.

Thats good doing four hours a day, just maybe do revision for that long and then perhaps 2 hours on exam style questions and exam papers.

I have 3 exams and im working for about 6-7 hours a day xx

4 exams and averaging about 2 papers per day so that's roughly 5 hours a day (including marking the papers). Mind you, I started exam practice a week ago so I'm not doing too bad atm.

3 exams, 1 of which is a retake and really not enough revision. I'm going to try and aim for at least 4 hours starting from tomorrow. I've found it impossible to revise since I broke up for the holidays, barely done anything and I hate myself for it D:
