    I'm not sure how much I should be doing - at the moment, I have between 4 and 6 hours per day planned, but people are telling me that 6 hours is too much. How much are you guys doing, and what grades are you going for?

    I have a made a list for what I need to do by tuesday so I guess as much as I can without going crazy. Then I will make a new list.

    I only have 3 A2 exams. Biology- aiming for full or nearly full ums. Chemistry- A grade. Maths- at least a C as this will give me an A overall.
    It's 3 exams but I have learnt barely anything for all of them as the last 2-3 months have been taken up by coursework.

    What are you aiming for in your exams? I think as long as the 6 hours are spread out with lots of breaks then it's fine.

    Yeah I got more organised this time, in January I just randomly floated around subjects and as a result I gave too much to maths but apparently not enough to econ and history, this won't happen this time... for 9 exams you really need to be organised lol. Do you do 1hour of each subject a day? for history I feel 1 hour isn't enough, so most of my 2hour sessions are dedicated to history

    Its a little more than hour I don't revise citizenship at all thats just a compulsory AS, in january my organisation was perfect I even watched tv about 3 hours a day lol managed to pull top grades in the 4 exams back then. I think its a lot about organisation and committing to your goal, if you try to keep with your timetable and don't do well one day you've still done a considerable amount of work

    I'm pretty much working all the time, off and on. Of course I get distracted and browse the internet yadda yadda, but in an 18 hour day I squeeze a respectable amount of work out.

    I haven't even started revision yet because the thought of revising miserably in the holidays is so daunting... but it has to be done. I'll probably force myself to revise C2 tomorrow (even this seems too early considering ALL 6 of my exams are May 17th and onwards). I did TONS of revision last time in Jan and only got AABB (wanted AAAA in all 4 exams).

    I'm going to tweak my revision techniques a bit by revising less hours and working so I'm basically focusing on quality rather than quantity. I never really take time into consideration as I make a to do list then spend however long it takes to finish it.

    I personally aimed to be finish with any exam i was going to be doing a month before it was actually going to happen.
    So make sure you are hitting the 90%+ mark a month before your exam and you'll be fine .
    I revised through out the year, but two months before the exam i started doing 6-8 hours of revision a day.

    I'm doing my revision everyday for the sciences and maths, I usually revise for 35 minutes then a 15 minute rest:P it helps information get into my small brain easier oh! And I ordered flash cards which are useful as I can write specific points, or questions on them
