I am doing my A2's in Biology, Chemistry and English Literature but I am also resitting 2 AS modules- I'm thinking of devoting each subject and hour except Lit which will get 30 min (I just have some reading to do). I'm planning to work 9 out of the 14 days with this time plan. Is it too much ? Will I get burnt out easily?

Everyday during your Christmas holiday?! I just don't want to burn out by Feb time when things really get serious.

You will not burn out at under 5 hours a day for a few weeks.

You say you're a WannaBMedStudent...?

It all depends on you and what you can manage. As long as you balance and aren't stupid, letting yourself chill when you need to, then its fine.

Christmas mainly consists of getting your notes from Sept - Dec together. I don't think 4.5 hours is too much at all if you're creating revision notes

Just read your notes lightly and don't focus on learning them all off by heart too seriously just yet.

Thats not too much. I'll be doing 5-7hrs a day (with breaks).

4.5 hours is good, plus during christmas holidays you'll have much longer to study

If you want to be a medicine student I think it's important for you to be doing more than that. I'm in year 12 and I'm planning on doing 8 hours a day every day apart from Saturday's!

It depends how much the subject comes to you naturally. I'll probably spend about 2 horus a day, on average, revising Biology, Chemistry and Maths A2. Some might need to do more for good grades. I do keep up with my work quite well in School though.

If the OP can get their grades whilst studying 4.5 hours then there is no need to do more. The workload will increase massively in med school, if someone is having to work all day every day to gain the required A levels, they may find themselves falling down the deciles once they reach med school and realise that they have little reserve.

I'm applying for medicine now with 5 As at AS and I definately didn't study 4 hours during Christmas holidays. It scales to everyone's natural ability.

Personally, that would be too much for me- I can't sit down and revise for very long without needing a break. However, if you find that this is helpful and doesn't make you sick of the work you're doing then it might work for you.
