    I'm having the weekend off, did four hours a day (Mon-Fri) this week, managed to cover all content for every subject. Starting again on Monday and going to cover the content again.

    Hmm... The core maths bit is OK for me, but the applied module :eek:! I do mechanics and it is by far my hardest subject.
    When you say mechanics do you mean Mechanics 1 or 2?
    Just wondering as I might be doing the same one as you

    Doing 9 hours a day, everyday, got 2 exams. It's what you do to get A*s
    I personally wouldn't be able to do 9 hours a day, and for two exams that's a lot of time? What subjects have you taken and when are your exams?

    None yet. Too early for me to start personally, anything revised at this stage doesn't stick in my head very well. I have a lot of the actual course still to learn for Further Maths. I've only got 4 exams in summer, though, and they're all at the end of June
    OMG you're so lucky! I wish I could be in a similar position , wanna swap?

    No, base your hours on how confident you feel with your exams, split those hours up and don't revise for every exam in one day, you will just get stressed and feel like your under too much pressure.

    I'm going by targets, not hours. I'd say my average day consists of work all day, with breaks in between. I don't want to do too much revision in one day though, if that makes sense, I think it's better to really get your head around something you're finding tricky than try to learn the entire specification in a week, briefly covering the tricky stuff.
    Yes I agree with this! What exams you got in the summer?

    M1 is easy I think

    I find C1 the hardest :lol: Someone not having a calculator in an exam who uses one to add 2+2 never goes done well

    It's more than enough

    4 hours of effective revision would be plenty

    I do this: 30 minutes revision, 15minute break, 30 minutes revision, 30minute break. (Repeat 1 or 2 times more)

    For Christmas exams I took the approach of "I am going to do amazing as I revised solid for8 hours today"..ohh I was so wrong.

    Quality over quantity my son!

    why do people tell people to revise less? revise as much as you want as long as you're satisfied, people tend to tell people to revise less when probably they revise like a madman, at the end of the day its survival of the fittest in this jungle people want higher grades then others simples do as much as you feel
