    Hi guys, as you know exam season is fast approaching and I was just hoping you lovely people would answer a few questions

    1) How do you stay motivated when revising
    2) How do you balance revision and homework?
    3) How long should I revise for each day to get As or Bs

    Thank You in advance!

    1.) I like to take small breaks after every half hour or so - it doesn't sound productive but it's a lot better than doing two hours of revision and getting so sick of it that you don't touch it again for another week
    2.) I don't normally get a lot of homework, but when I do I try to make it a part of my revision - e.g. if I'm told to do a set of questions on a particular topic, I'll revise it first and then do the homework so I (kind of) kill two birds with one stone!
    3.) Depends really - if you calculate how long you have until a particular exam, you can set yourself targets for every week so you get everything done on time :rolleyes:
