    How much would you recommend revising a day from now until the date of my exam? (Aiming for A/A* in the vast majority of my subjects)

    It depends on how much you already know i guess, but the main thing is not to overwork yourself because then you probably won't remember anything at all. During the week in the evenings i think i did about 1 1/2 - 2 hours and then weekends id kind of stagger it over the day? so about 5 hours, make sure you have regular breaks as well, take an evening off etc. I can't really remember GCSES so I'm not sure if this is good advice

    No one can tell you, you need to come up with an amount that is right for you. It depends so much on how much you already know, how efficiently you can work etc etc. For example if your current grades are very different from the ones you hope to achieve in june than clearly your current approach isn't working and you need to do something drastically different, whereas if you are already achieving well than you might not need to make such a dramatic change
