    Depends on the timescales, if it is 9 hours a day then I think it may be a bit too much if this is GCSE or even at A Level.

    I personally think it is better to set yourself targets each day instead of actual times - for example revise one or two topics a day and make sure those have been cracked before trying to tackle anything else. I do this and it averages ~4 hours per day with breaks inbetween

    If it's improving your grades and you're making sure to eat, exercise etc... then I don't see why not? A lot of people will tell you it's not good for you, but a lot of people don't go Oxbridge either.

    9 is excellent if you "absorb"

    For GCSEs? Maybe but for A-Levels/IB? Depends on the person but personally, for me, not at all. Just make sure you're taking regular breaks and if you feel like you really need to put in that amount of revision time and it's productive then go for it

    I think what's most important is that you're happy. I know people who revise before school, then at break, then at lunch, then until 9 in the evening after school. It grows to the extent where they will panic if they have to miss a lunchtime of revision to go to a meeting.

    My own school, notorious amongst us for being very harsh with working hours, only recommended 6 hours a day in the holidays (like a regular school day) and 1+ hours after school.

    9 hours might be a bit excessive, just make sure that you're looking after yourself and experiencing life as well
