    It's for A-levels, just for the Easter holidays. Sometimes I stretch it to 8, is it too much? Too little?

    6 exams, all in May

    (There may have been some confusion to whether it's just a straight 6 hour day but I do take regular breaks, and the subjects I do require vast amounts of detailed knowledge as well.)

    WAIT WHEN DID MY THREAD GET SPONSERED BY GET REVISING? (Sorry, just had to say)

    It depends how many exams you're actually doing in the summer, and if you're feeling good about what you're doing now, then keep doing it, if you feel drained after every revision session, then do less hours

    Tell me about it. I've wasted a large portion of today doing absolutely nothing.

    I have 7 exams between 13th May 3rd June, I have little work ethics and I am doing 2-3 hours a day ATM (in the easter holidays) spending most of my days playing football or watching Heros (so god damn addictive)
    I got AABE in Jan after being predicted CCCC so Im quite please, and I only did 2 hours a day for 2 weeks up untill the exam.
    I know I need to do more, but ill slowly build up the time I spend day by day, hopefully picking up more motivation

    I do around the same hours. 6.5 today.

    On an hour break and hoping I can pull off another 1.5-2 hour.

    And yes you're doing fine! I think as human being it is impossible to do anything more than 8-10 hours. Well at least thats the case for me.

    Which exams, out of curiosity?

    personally, I'd be doing about 4-5 hours a day if I had 6 exams (because I'm lazier than you and have a worser work ethic ) but hey more is better

    you shouldn't do long revision sessions, you should do 15 minutes, then do something else, then another 15 minutes. It can add up to 6 hours, but don't do it in large chunks, won't go in.

    That's a long time. I studied about 2 - 3 hours, but I took little breaks in between.

    I think what's more important is that the revision you do is effective. But 6 hours is a commendable well done having the discipline.
