    I never do revision, hardly ever really. That's a really bad thing as I procrastinate heavily, but I think it's weighed out by the fact I focus a lot in class which I judge to be far more important.

    I started doing about 7 hours a day from 11am to 6pm in March, with a timetable for all subjects, but now I'm doing about 8 hours a day from 10am to 7pm, with a couple of small breaks in between, for whatever exam I am prioritizing at that time. I find it easier to revise for longer with less breaks, as I just get distracted and my revision doesn't flow as well as it would otherwise. At the moment I'm not using my revision timetable anymore, and I'm just doing what I know I need to revise, for example I'm going to spend Saturday doing Unit 2 Psychology, and Sunday doing Cold War.

    I guessed that your username was related to the amount of revision you've been doing?

    I'm a mess

    I procrastinate/sleep/am busy all day and at nights I do 8-15 exam papers for maths and chemistry. Last weekend I went crazy one day and did 51 and some extra exercises. Since then I cba, I barely read my notes for 2 hours this week. But another weekend is coming so I hope the crazy dorky me will rise again.


    ...



    I really need to get my **** together.

    I peaked way too early imo so I typically aim for ninety minutes-two hours per night on weekdays, nothing at the moment for weekends.

    That's not including the hours of revision I have to do in lesson time, however.
