    It's less about the time you take and more about how you use it.

    Looking back on your mocks, what went wrong? Was it a straight-up lack of revision, or were you not using your time effectively? Did you not remember the content, or was it a case of genuinely not understanding it when it was taught?

    For maths the best thing you can do is past papers and practice questions, but the other subjects have much more flexibility in terms of revision strategies. Instead of setting yourself time based targets, it might be more useful to set task based ones (e.g. 'tomorrow I'll do a C1 paper, make some index cards for economics and make a mind map/timeline for a unit in history'). Remember to ask your teachers for help and advice, it's what they're there for!

    I will say that doing three hours solidly every day is a decent amount at this stage yes, however it'll probably be easier to keep up the motivation if you give yourself more specific targets than just a number of hours.

    Tbh if want the top grades you should just be continuously doing work. When you get in from school you should pretty much just start looking at some work without even thinking about it. Just continuously revise.
