I always feel guilty when I'm not revising watch

    I do quite a bit of revision, say anything from about 4-6 hours for my A-levels. I got quite good January module results, enough to allow me to relax a little, and I have about the same amount of exams this June. It's just whenever I stop revising, I feel guilty, as if I'm going to fail etc, and can't really enjoy myself. Is there any way around this? Things I could do? I'd like to keep up the same amount of revision over the holidays preferably, maybe 6 hours a day, with a day and a half off a week, but I don't want to feel guilty.

    Anybody else ever feel this way?

    Yeh, I know the feeling!
    Sometimes it stays all year until the summer holidays.

    I've found that the best way to reduce it is to set a time everyday when you revise. For example if you revise everyday from 10 until 4 or something then after 4 you will feel less guilty because your work for the day is done.

    Don't aim to get maximum hours in because it's counter-productive and you'll always feel like a failure. Aim for a reasonable target so you'll feel satisfied when you achieve it.
