    We'll my sixth form recommends us to do at least 6 hours of each subject per week, will you be able to concentrate 5 hours continuously?

    It really isn't too much. To do too much is pretty difficult and would require you working until you physical burnout.
    During my A Levels I probably did about 3 or 4 hours a day but that is purely because I had difficulty making myself do more. So, provided you revision technique is good 5 hours a day should be adequate. Good luck for when they do come around

    Obviously I am assuming this is after you have finished your lessons which won't be for a few months

    You really don't need to start revising now. Just do any homework that is set and that should really be enough to keep you going. And if you done understand something then spend your time making sure you understand it. Then when it comes round to easter you can start refreshing everything and beginning with real exam preparation

    For the past one and a half months I have done probably half an hour a day on average (predicted 4 A*s at A2 btw). Usually I do around 2-3 hours on a consistent basis but I had been ill for almost a month and then just find it difficult to get back on track now although for the first time I have done more than two hours since my illness.
