    Does anyone else feel really guilty when they aren't revising? For me it's gotten so bad that I can't really enjoy myself when going out or taking a break because I feel like I should be revising.

    I'm currently doing about 6 hours a day. Is this enough to get all A's in my AS levels with maybe some 90%+ scores?

    Yeah, you are doing more than enough!! Just remember that it is important to relax and take time out else you won't be able to concentrate and focus as much! You don't need to revise all the time to get great grades

    6 hours a day?! How do you manage that?! I'm studying my A2 Levels and need to start revision tomorrow. Recently my minds been off task. I need to sort my timtable out and everything. But yes, I'm feeling guilty because I've done nothing at the moment. You have, so don't be afraid taking breaks!!!

    I've recently been feeling this way...but my IB exams, which are the culmination of all my sixth form study start in a month so that's probably about right.

    I know it's hard to shake the feeling, and I don't think the OP is worrying about whether they should be feeling guilty, but rather that they are and wish they weren't. I imagine the OP knows that 6 hours is more than enough for AS levels. I personally know I shouldn't feel guilty for taking revision breaks or days off yet I still do. I find it helps if I set aside a certain amount of time for study and schedule a break in the knowledge that I have done enough for the day, or plan to do more later. That way I find I can enjoy myself too.

    I feel guilty if I haven't bothered. It's that horrible feeling that I get before sleep. I try to excuse myself as I still have time . But that's good, I have motivation to actually revise
