    So I'm going about with revision but I'm wondering if I should separate revision into chunks by picking out certain topics from the specification and revising them during days.
    So the question is how many topics from a specification should I dedicate to revising daily?

    How long do you have and how much time do you have to dedicate to revision?

    Well I'm revising this month and I usually do 3 hours after school on weekdays and longer on weekends.

    In response to your previous question I would think for each topic how long I want to spend on each topic and gradually reduce it the more I revise it. My friend's teacher suggested for geography that they broke up an hour into 12 and revised each one of the twelve topics for five minutes, had a break and then repeated with each topic. This method would be good for recall but I'm not sure how much you'd cover in each session.

    Personally when I revise I pick out a topic from the spec and work on it until I'm confident that I know about it, move on and then come back the next day to check what I can remember and fill in the gaps. I hope this helps!
