    Each day I usually spend 5 to 6 hours revising usually 1 hour breaks in between each 1 hour sessions, as it keeps my concentration levels up.

    Roughly how long do you guys spend revising each day?

    On school day I normally do 3-4 hours of revision with 30 minutes to an hour break in between

    Those hour frames are like the goals that I make every night for the next day, then comes the next day.....

    I literally do less than 1/6th of my goal.... like 30 min :-(

    Any tips?

    Hahaha... Recently, I've been doing around 8 hours of revision a day. However, I'm doing A levels and need AAA this year so...

    For GCSEs, I did like an hour before the exam and winged it tbh.

    When I was at school/collage I was spending maybe an hour or two revising each day. Some days I did no revision and they were purely for relaxing.

    The correct answer is to do the amount that makes you feel comfortable taking the exam without burning yourself out.

    Break it down how you need to do it. I've been doing 1-2 hours per day roughly depending on what subjects im doing but it all depends on what you need. There is no usual amount i don't think

    i do as much as i need per topic but i do half hour slots with a five minute break in between (because after half an hour the brain's attention span kinda exceeds its limit) and then have a half hour break when i finish the whole topic of a certain subject so a topic usually takes around 3 of 4 half hour slots with 15 mins break in between in total before the half hour break

    I myself do quite a lot but it makes me feel prepared so it's great to do as much as you feel necessary. Just remember that GCSE's are important but they don't define you as a person. I think it's good to prioritise the stuff you would rather do well in! I will spend a lot more time revising science (because its quite content heavy and because I enjoy it too) than German which I won't continue with. I just remind myself that a grade isn't a representation of who I am and its not the "be all or end all" as such, but I still want to succeed of course.

    I don't really keep time of how much I revise, I just set myself work to do for that day and try to get it done before the day is over (which only sometimes happens ). But if it's a good day I'd say around 4-5 hours.
