    I am studying very similar things, except I did English literature in year 10 and instead of geography I am doing RE (and I'm triple science). We have been told to revise for 21+ hours a week during school time and to work as much as possible during Easter. I am currently focusing on weaker areas or areas which I will be learning content up until the exam and honestly I think if you're doing more than 7 hours a day, it could be considered a little too extreme despite the fact the more revision the better, cramming it is only going to make you deranged and your concentration levels trail off. I'm sticking to at least 3 hours a day, excluding one break day a week (for my difficult areas eg science), and then pairing that with another couple of hours of subjects I am better at. It is working better focusing on harder areas and giving them more attention as I am making progress in my understanding, so don't over revise a subject you love unless you're really behind. It's best to put the effort into weaker areas, while still maintaining that high ability in other subjects you love/are good at by allocating them a a few hours here and there!!
