During study leave I mimicked school hours, so revised about 7 hours with short breaks, mostly started cramming few days before the exam then went over everything the day before...

For GCSE you're besst of revising closer to the exams rather than starting from day one. I revised two days before each exam, but I highly recommend you don't do that!

Also try your best to revise for your mocks, it will help in many ways, trust me.

In a day?
For GCSEs...
In January, I did 1-2 hours a day (not every day) for my mocks, getting 5A* 2A (they merged science and didn't include English lit).

I stopped revising until April due to the need for a tonne of art coursework to improve my grade.

In April, I did 1-6 hours per day depending on my mood and how close I was to my exams.

About 2 weeks before the exams I did 2-5 hours, and every night before a particular paper, I just revised for that/those paper/s for 1-3 hours per subject (depending on my confidence).

For A-levels...
I made some revision resources from September to January. I started revising in March for an hour a day. In April, I did about 1-4 hours a day, and in May and June I was doing 1-5 hours a day. For me, that was more than enough :sleep:

4 weeks before but I had to do intensive revision I should have started a week or 2 earlier. Not sure how many hours but all day but I procrastinated loads. The night before I would do a past paper and go over my weak points of that topic. Could you add a poll to this please?
