Im in my first year at uni.
I would like to know your opinions on how i split my time up revising and i would like to hear any tips or just share how you revise

1 hour of revision split into 2 sessions of 25/5 (25 minutes working/ 5 minutes stretching your legs)
followed by 1 hour of video games/ watching a tv show etc...

all together its around 4 hours of revision and 4 hours of relaxing. i'm hoping to ramp this up to 5/6 hours nearer to exam time.
What do you think?

Sounds like a good plan for your first year. Short intervals of revision with a little break is the best way to go about it. How far away are your exams?

Yeah, I'd say that's pretty efficient so long as you use those 25 minutes properly. I would also say that splitting up when you revise is good practice. So doing 4 hours of revision total, it would be better to do e.g. 10-11am, 2-3pm, 5-6pm, 8-9pm rather than doing the hour blocks closer together. Of course, this never works because at uni you will have a life and be doing things which limit when you are free.

You could probably cut the relaxing time down to 30 minutes if you need to get more work in.

8 hours is too much unless you really enjoy working. You're probably being inefficient here. I understand the need to want to feel like you're giving it 100% but honestly relaxing and taking 1 hour off to do exercise or to get more sleep will benefit you way more than trying to cram in as much book time as you can.

I feel bad for you son... i got 99 problems but A levels ain't one

The jump from GCSE to A levels is big, past papers are a good way to revise .
