    How many hours a day are you guys revising and to get good grades like a's and b's at a level would you recommend like 6 -8 hours a day ?

    make a timetable

    Depends on how much you still need to do/have done.
    I would recommend about that much if you know you''ll be able to revise/cover everything you need to.

    Honestly it depends on you as a person. Never over do it and never try to force it in. My subjects don't require a lot of revision but if your doing STEM subjects then yeah you could devote three hours a day? Mid day is best to revise as mornings and evenings are never a good time. You could also do group revision of that helps by revising with other people from your classes.

    for me i revise as much as i can until i can not do any more or sometimes i take breaks which helps a lot.
    it depends on the person. if you can revise for 6-8 hours go for it. revise as much as you can so it could actually stick in. but if you are someone who revises for 2-4 hours then make sure u revise efficiently. hope this helped.

    I would say 2 hours per subject per day based on a 5 day week

    I'm doing 3-4 hours a day, but that's because I've been doing 3-4 hours every day since the beginning of February, so I won't have to cram stuff in like a lot of people. I can take it quite leisurely now.
