    How long do you reckon it would take to completely cover all of M1? I have loads of resources. What I mean when I say ''completely cover'' is be comfortable with whatever the exam throws at me. Does 2 weeks of 10 hour days sound good?

    No. 4 weeks of 5 hour days sounds about right. Over-working will not make you any better at the subject and will just tire you out. Do a manageable amount each day and you'll know M1 soon enough.

    I did M1 this June BTW.

    A school day is 6 hours long. Plus in exam period people often go home to revise for some time. So I believe it will not tire me out, so long as I have breaks.

    A school day isn't 6 hours of solid mathematics!

    Have you tried doing any M1 yet? If you find it a chore you may want to have more frequent breaks and not do so much in one go. Also, if you really enjoy the topics you may find that you can accomplish a lot with just a couple of hours a day. There will come a point when spending excessive time on one area of maths will only bring you marginal returns.

    Don't try cramming it or else you'll forget a good deal of it.

    Perhaps six weeks, try doing past papers at least twice a week until the exam comes.

    I self taught M1 and it took me about 8-10 weeks to know it really in depth, and be able to do well in past papers. Did about 6 hours per week. I had learnt it within 6 weeks, but I knew it much better after spending some extra time on it.
