    Hi guys, I wanted to ask how long should you spend revising daily and how you deal with stress?

    Thanks,

    There is no need to revise daily for GCSEs.
    I suggest you start revising a few weeks before the exam/s.

    Well for my GCSEs i started in January and i didn't get all the grades that i wanted to i would've started in October if not now! On a during holidays and weekends i did 6-7 hours of revision everyday with a 20 minute break every hour. After school i did a further three hours on top of extracurricular maths everyday after school which got me a C overall.

    For my As levels that i'm doing now i've just started revising a full 8 hours a day in preparation because there is so much essay writing to do which i'm really bad at so yeah, on top 2-4 hours of college lessons i still do around 5 hours of work a day as well as attending subject support.
    - When i say revision here i mean just learning how to style my answers because that's what's dragging me down so much and getting extra knowledge!

    Have breaks every hour and good luck!!!

    What where you grades if I may ask ? because I fail to imagine you not being happy with your results if you put this much work into it 😊

    Also revise in different ways. Just reading is not effective for long. Maybe listen to utube videos on your subjects. Even when you are asleep part of your brain still takes in stuff, so definitely worth a try

    Hi thank you so much for the advice, I do about the same work that I do on normal school days I do about 7hours and on weekends I do more, and I have started from October properly revising. I'm just really stressed out lol, again thanks or the advice and good with your studies.
    Although it's great that you're determined, I would be careful in case you burn out and won't want to do any revision by the time the exams come around and when revision is most effective.

    OK Hotshot!
    I'm assuming you got good results and are now in A-level so why don't you tell us your grades
