    Yes but I have no idea if it will pay off after those set of results, maybe I should revise less?
    I'd say so, short bursts with lots of breaks makes effective revision. (But not for maths, thats just about practice).

    I'm not sure, something to do with Economics, a job in the City. I chose irrelevant subjects for this though; Economics, English Language, ICT, Spanish and World Development.

    Kind of started, but need to do a lot more. Need to focus on all my subjects and not just maths and psychology! Need to start doing solid work from now on!

    I'm just doing notes after each lesson, plus homework/ questions. At the end of each chapter, making big " end of chapter notes" on the computer with lots of pretty pictures and more questions in some test form. Nearer exams I'll probably make posters too or something similar and read the notes. Hopefully this will improve my grades..

    Yeah I think I might do that, though I believe it was my exam technique that let me down, do you know any websites with good exam technique etc

    You get nagged to do revision, my parents disapprove. They said I do too much, when in reality, I don't.
    On weekdays I revise 6 hours, and on weekends, around 12 hours to 15 hours - I know it isn't good to revise so much, especially all in one go, though I get complained at if I don't. Right now, my parents are in the next room, so I just secretly take breaks :] - I used to watch tv from the time I wake up until I sleep, but I cut it back to 40 mins a day at most

    Edit: And I still get complained that I'm doing too little revision -.-

    I just don't know what happened! I was doing well in my mocks but was a lot slower and dumber in the real thing. I need to seriously practice my exam technique and simply perform on the day. Anybody got any tips on how to do this, like maybe doing past papers in unfamiliar environments or something?

    For a second I thought it was real, after the outlandish times people propose.

    For people planning on doing like 15 hours a day:
    a.) It won't be effective and you will learn little after the 3 hour mark
    b.) It's physically draining and then effects your ability to understand and absorb information the next day
    c.) GO OUTSIDE. It will help you clear your mind and feel inspired when you come back. A short walk will suffice, especially as the weather is getting nicer.

    Depends...
    Going 12 hours is possible WITH breaks, at least 1 hour for every 2 hours imho.
    However doing ONLY 1 subject for 12 hours is deffo a no no!
    Mix and match, best route otherwise you may as well just do 1 hour work then that's it!

    I have nothing against anything you just said, it all makes perfect sense apart from... "especially as the weather is getting nicer."
    It rained where I am all day today. Haha!
