    It's half term and I am currently doing 3 hours a day of revision and I usually do 3 subjects a day (a hour of each) Is that enough to get decent grades like B's and A's?? I currently get B's and A's on mocks so should I stick to my routine. As usually if I do more I get very stressed.

    Yes effective 3 hour revision should be enough for GCSE's.

    I'm doing the same as you - when it comes to revison, you should value quality above quantity because, although revising for twelve hours straight sounds impressive, it is not necessarily the best means of learning if your brain cannot process anything!

    I agree as when I revise I do have breaks but when I am doing the actual revision I make sure I am not distracted by anything!
