Is revising for ruffly 10 hours a day( with some past papers revision )boost a B grade to a high A* grade?

The longest I've went revising without a break is about 4 hours, so I'm willing to do 10 if it guarantees A*'s as I don't really have much to do during the day- may aswell revise.

if it works for you then go ahead... make sure you take breaks in between though or you'll go crazy. Too much revision isn't good either. Take it easy. Good luck, hope you get the grade you want.

What year are you in? Y11? Because to be honest that's not the best way to revise. I like your enthusiasm but you're just going to burn out half way through. What's wrong with a 10 minute break every hour? Don't do 10 hours straight plssss :/ you'll go insane!! Good luck with revision, I'm sure you can smash those A*s (with breaks in between)
It's "roughly" by the way, instead of "ruffly".

Theres no way I could revise fo 10 hours straight, I would get hungry and tired. When I was talking about the 10 hour it excluded any breaks, so obviously I would have breaks but that dosen't count as revision

10 hours won't guarantee A*s but you can always try your best.
Do past papers, mark them and check the grade boundaries for that year to see if you can get an A*.
If you're willing to put in that much work, go for it.

If its 10 hours before the actual exam go for it!
lol gotta love cram revision although 10 hours is a bit excessive in general.

But quality not quantity. You need to understand what the hell you are revising.
If you do a past paper at the end of it and still haven't improved then the way that you revise isn't working.

Ok, i see. Now i'm less worried lol. If you want to do that, sure - but judge it wisely. if you get bored or drained out just stop. I'm sure you already know this (:

To echo what the above posters have already said, don't measure it by how much time you spend on your revision. Measure it by how much you get done.

10 hours does seem like too much.

Lol. Just yesterday you were ranting about how 'overrated' GCSE's are. Why are you revising? Don't forget: GCSE's are overrated!

That's an absolute joke, you doing 'regular revision'. If that was indeed the case, the likelihood of you posting a thread about doing ten hours of revision a day would be close to zero.
