    Quality not quantity, the amount of hours you revise for is negligible if what you're doing doesn't help you. Firstly, you need to find what revision techniques work for you (mind maps, past papers, friends/family questioning you, flash cards, reading, and I think the biggest of them all is paying attention in class (but others may argue otherwise)).

    I would suggest a minimum of 1 hour a day of revision on weekdays and 2 on weekends, but remember you're allowed to give yourself off a few days too . The main thing really though is to learn what you like, I prefer to do past papers myself.

    m8 if you haven't started revising yet you are deffo going to fail. I have no retakes and I'm revising on an average of 3 hours a day. If you're falling behind on revision, rethink your revision, create a timetable and consider getting a tutor.

    stressing yourself out about it won't help make sure you spend the time you revise really productively 1.5h of hardcore revision without distraction is better than 3h of revision and watching things (believe me i know! im constantly doing the latter).
