    With revision I think it's quality rather than quantity but I recon 100 should be enough.

    I'm doing A2 sciences, and I've been recording how many hours of revision I've done for each subject and each unit.
    I can link each one up to my most recent grade at that point in revision in time order. I think 100 hours each is excessive, but if you think it's what you need then sure.

    Biology unit 5 - 5 hours - C
    Physics unit 5 - 6 hours - E
    Physics unit 4 - 14 hours - A
    Biology unit 4 - 17 hours - A
    Chemistry unit 5 - 17 hours - A
    Chemistry unit 4 - 17 hours - A*

    Dude that's 400 hours.

    Doing 10 hours a day, you're gonna need 40 days. Do you even have 40 days before your exams?

    100 hours per exam is a bit much...whilst I love your attitude, this many hours of revision could end up hindering not helping! As a kind of average ball park to aim for, 40 - 60 hours per subject or per exam, whichever you prefer, should be enough. Good luck! With that kind of attitude, you're gonna have no problem! Wish I had been that motivated.

    For the easy unit in Chem I'm at an A and haven't started revising at all for the harder other one.
    For the easy unit in Physics I'm at an A and haven't started revising at all for the harder one.
    For maths I'm at an A in C1 a B in C2 and a B in M1 I'd say but I know much effort won't be needed to pull it up to an A overall.
    For biology, well I've done nothing at all so I'm guessing I'm at an E.
    4As possible or not?
