    I want to start revising now and I was wondering what you think the most amount of hours I should spend revising everyday is? I have 5 A2 exams and I am retaking 3 AS exams.

    I think 4-7 hours a day would be best, don't obviously do it all at once, take 20 minute breaks in between.

    The 'most' amount of revision you should do is until you feel tired and/or you aren't retaining information anymore.

    From September-October I did about 4-5 hours on a school day and 7-8 on the weekends for 14 exams in the summer.

    This is a thing? For 9 months you revised 7-8 hours a day each day on the weekend?!?

    Yes. I had a 'no work before 11 a.m.' policy, had two one hour breaks for lunch and dinner and finished at 9 p.m. That kind of explains how I managed to do every single question in about 10 maths books that year.

    A*AAB. I did quite well in the Summer exams but the practical exams earlier on for the two sciences let me down.

    Congrats . It is a bit extreme though to be fair, not much time for partying and by the end of it you're pretty knackered.

    Yeah I turned down a lot of nights outs. Wasn't too bothered though as it's not really my thing anyway. I missed playing football the most!
