    I try to do between 5 and 6, but some of that is spent procrastinating in the most ridiculous ways, like stretching and staring at the wall. Yesterday I done 5 hours, today just 3, but I'll be without internet for the next few days so I'll try and do about 5-6 hours then. Social life is on hold for most people in my year (year 12).

    example of a day: start revising at 9:30-10, revise biology for 4 hours with a break after 2 hours for 10 minutes. takes me to around 2pm. revise chemistry for 3 hours with a half hour break for food at 3:30. Takes me to 5:30. Revise Maths for 2 hours/do maths past paper until 7:30. TV for half an hour... then I plan to revise for AS 8-8:30 until 10 or 10:30. I also plan to start revising earlier than 9:30, somewhere between 8 and 9 from tomorrow onwards.... I have 12 exams in summer though, 7 A2 modules and 5 AS modules...

    That's mad aha! I'm really organised but I don't put that much work in! I do hour burst from 9-7 with breaks for lunch and dinner and a break between each subject change (to clean my mind). I can only work efficiently for around 50 minutes so there is no point of me working 3 hours. I have 14 exams in the summer (10 A2 and 4 AS)

    I'm doing AS at the moment: Biology, Chemistry, History, Maths and the Extended Project and I am hoping to study Dentistry! I need to work more harder!

    , How's A-level revision going?
    Ah ok and wow good luck! i do maths too, just make sure you get great grades this year so that you can focus on just a2 next year! It's going ok, but had i worked harder last year as i am doing this year it would have been easier.

    0 right now, I’m in second year university & I have a couple pieces of coursework due in and meetings with potential dissertation supervisors to be getting on with atm ):
    Next week I’ll try to get in a couple of hours a day, then the following week I have a week-long fieldtrip soo nothing will get done then. After that the plan is to do roughly 4-6 hours a day.

    You could find a really efficient way to revise! I'm currently trying different methods of revising. I've a test today and I've been listening to podcasts all day. My best method was sticking pages on a wall and keeping rewriting facts whilst teaching my cat. Sounds weird but I got 100% in my last test

    8 hours but some of it is spent procastanation by staring dumbly at the wall and looking at the sunny lit garden. Yesterday i managed to do two english papers thats 4 hours, revise chemistry and biology and answer a C2 maths paper. Todays focus is on past papers for all my subject so that is 8 units. But i will probally do 4 past papers today. One for each subject.

    Between 3-6 hours a day. Mostly 4/5 hours. And I'm talking proper hours with no distractions

    That allows me to cover lots in depth, but not burn myself out. I've found that more than 6 hours and I become a zombie :lol:

    Exactly! I think I've done a grand total of 9 hours so far this holiday, let alone in one day! :lol:

    I really need to get my act together. :afraid:
