    Yeah, Baring in mind that I finish school at 1am at least 4 days a week, and my nearest exam is in less than a months time.

    It's really useful
    I really think my Physics teacher made Google

    I didn't revise at all for AS, got 2 A's and a B. I don't plan on revising much for A2 either, just briefly reading a summary of the book before the Unit 4 exam.

    Edit: But this is because I'm taking languages which I already speak.

    How many hours is everyone revising after school then?
    5 - 6 hours? I go to bed as soon as I come back from school, wake up 12:00/1:00 and revise til the Sun comes up

    Same, took the day off, tried revising in the morning but just couldn't.
    Oh well, going to suffer for this tomorrow now. I keep thinking of the depression I'll fall into if I fail to get the AAA i need to make my firm choice. Aargh.

    I don't exactly count the hours, I set myself targets instead. But even within that, I procrastinate a lot (exhibit A)

    It varies day to day for me, around 3 hours everyday TBH, same for weekends.
    For example I did 2 hours Saturday, 4 hours Sunday, 1 hour yesterday and 6 hours today (including frees I used to revise) so around 3 hours, although I dont really revise on Saturdays for more than an hour as coach and watched my beloved Derby County! I think 3 hours is ok, have 7 AS exams, and did 2 hours a day, for a week before my Jan exam and got ABBE (E was in Biology, and I know where I went wrong).
    To summarise 3hrs a day is probably about right as long as its focused and you dont procasinate for it

    3 hours sounds great, I came out with ABC (I'm retaking the C, my technique was wrong) in my January exams, I did about 4 hours a day in the holidays and about 2 hours after school every day. I'm doing 2 hours after school a day, this will probably increase one or two weeks before the exams (they start of the 21st for me). For me 2 hours doesn't over do it and I can at least have some time to relax in the evening and just finish up on some homework.

    Before my Jan Exams I did around 3hrs a day in the holidays for a week, and then 2hours a night for a week, got ABBE (resitting E) so not to bad
