    100 days? Think 13 weeks... It sounds better! I'm in the same boat. I was supposed to start revising three weeks ago and so far nothing has happened. I don't think it's that bad, we still have time! I'm the same with Netflix- finally on season 4 of Once Upon A Time We still have time though so we'll be fine!

    I never revised at all until I made a revision timetable on Saturday lol. I revised 3 hours a day on Sunday, Monday & Tuesday, about an hour on Wednesday and today I haven't done any at all today because The Legend of Zelda is too good
    I'm going to try 2 hours a day once school starts; I only did 3 hours because of half term

    Maybe I'll try a revision timetable in the morning then... Good luck with two hours a day! I'm not sure I could have the dedication or time to commit to that! One of my best friend's doing the same thing though so it is possible.

    I take it by topics - so I did physics and maths today, 3 pages to finish P1, 3 maths topics. Another day I'll do a past paper for Eng Lang, and that'll be all. It really depends on you, your subjects, and how much you need to cover. Good luck,dude.

    Of course it's possible. Some people revise 5+ hours a day with 15 mins break once in a while

    I know it's possible but I always seem to get distracted. Tomorrow will be a new day and I will try to work through the day.

    When I revise I tend to break my revision into smaller periods. For me it tends to be forty minutes before I lose my focus. Four hours straight would be a bit of a nightmare and would make me unmotivated too.

    In the breaks I ask myself questions to try to recall what I've just learnt. Sometimes whilst I'm revising I cover what I've just done and force myself to remember what I've just done. I hope this helps!

    http://www.G.co.uk/showthread.php?t=3895377 check out my GYG for info on how I revise. I highly recommend revision timetables as they help you to know what to revise when. Also, during half term, I've basically just set myself targets for revision.
