    It's very possible. The amount of revision per day depends on a lot of factors - how much you've done already, how good your memory is etc. However, I would estimate five hours per day, not including breaks, is decent. Everyone has their own limit. Don't try to do eight hours a day because you'll burn out (or I would, anyway). You may be able to do more, but don't plan for it.

    I would calculate how much time five hours a day gives you, and plan your revision accordingly. Having done Maths and Chemistry (not business studies, sorry), my general advice would be;

    - Maths: Practice is everything. Spend hardly any time on theory and learn as you go along. Do every question in the book, using the examples, or every other question if you have time.
    - Chemistry: The opposite. Do some past papers, but spend time making colourful notes and diagrams, and try to understand exactly what is going on. Practice the calculations questions like you would maths, though. The key with chemistry is attention to detail - just before the exam, make data sheets, suuch as a map of the organic reactions, and memorise the entire thing.

    - On a slightly more general note, take frequent breaks and drink plenty of water. Water makes an amazing difference.
    - Don't rush, as you won't learn. It's better to learn most of it well and rush the rest than to not learn anything properly.
    - Finally, don't panic if you miss a day, or a few hours. You'll naturally have good and bad days, and you'll make it up somewhere.

    This may all be stuff you know already, but it worked for me, so hopefully it's of some use. Good luck with it

    i am doing 4 chem,
    3bio
    3business

    I have started revising chemistry : mainly the mathy equations, and calculations, methods stuff that i cant forget in 3 months time like redox, once i have learned them.

    Bio: I have decided to read,look over and focus on topics that i am struggling with and require high understanding.And make big summaries and note.

    Business: I have realized it's mainly English based and good use of terms and being able to argue,analyse and evaluate work.8/10 english students in our business class got A in last module as they were able to use application, anaylsis, effect and evaluation.


    I plan on getting A in most, we can do it lool

    Go on get revising.com and make a revision timetable

    Also depends on the type of exam you have
    I have mainly maths exams which is more practice so maybe at least 2 of exam a week so once you learn the method you can do most questions

    Chemistry and Biology at the moment its all content content exam practice should be closer exam period so if your doing by topic do all the exam questions on it.

    Psychology - Im getting all my essays written now to memorise later on .


    Revision Tips



    Have aims for each revision session with time limits
    Always go over what you learnt before in terms of notes even if you just read it.
    Go to bed on time
    Always try and get someone else to mark your exam paper- like a friend doing the same subject. Whether you think you're a harsh marker is irrelevant its good to see how other people write their answers and exam technique is soooo essential!!!

    It can be done if you revise equally for all of them, and do lots of practice papers.
