    What you on about? For someone aiming for all A*s, only 7-8 hours of revision a day is required atm for easter and weekends, and around 9 on study leave, with 4-5 on a school night. And it's rare for people from uni to get up at 6am and study until 8pm on a regular basis, that'd only be if they have poor management with time and have left something to the last minute.

    I'm not from the UK and so we don't do GCSEs or A-Levels in this case but I'd say, revise depending on your "fresh hours". Like, how many hours can YOU as an individual revise a day? Do that and do it when you're most alert! (Mornings are great). Maybe you're capable of doing 10 hours but in different time intervals so yeah!

    I've only been doing 1-3 hours per day with a couple of days off but I am struggling to find the energy and the motivation for it
    what i did was i set myself i goal and everyday i tell myself i will reach that goal and i push myself to the limit..my friends believe in me and thats all the motivation i need really... if you believe in yourself and tell yourself you can do it you will be able to...
    and tbh at least your studying and that 1-3 hours will be crucial in the long run and hopefully it will be worth it

    best of luck

    it's not easier though, it's making it unnecessarily hard for yourself. In my experience the individuals who subject themselves to ridiculousness like 9 hours a day for GCSE exams are usually socially inept.

    I tutor a fair amount of GCSE students, and have hammered home the message both to them and their parents that 3 hours a day is fine as long as they're consistently doing 3 hours a day, none of my pupils are aiming for below an A*.
