    Why set yourself a specific time to get everything done? Just do what work you need to do and how long you revise will be however long it takes you to finish your work for the day. I think some people set a time that they will finish revising at and then just finish at that time even if they haven't understood much. Just revise until everything make sense.

    I got A*AA in my A2's and I would say probably 3/4 hours . But a lot of my revision wasn't productive so I would sit on my phone or just stare at my text book for some time, so it was probably only a productive 3 hours, but it's important to factor in unconscious procrastination because everyone does it x

    I understand many of my notes, luckily for me. Most of my revision consists of refreshing my memory!

    5 hours per subject per week so if you do 4 subjects, 20 hours per week = around 3 hours per day
