    I have no idea. I always think those people are lying xD I just revise for a few hours a day with no distractions and manage to get good grades, so that's fine by me.

    If I'm feeling it I can revise for quiet a long time. Mostly I just make sure I don't have distractions, but that I give myself regular short breaks and that I revise in a way that keeps me interested

    I literally do it because i dont want to fail, and want to get into uni with decent grades (As and Bs)
    I have a holiday after exams so that helps as its something to look forward too
    And if you have regular breaks and set oiut a plan of what you want to do its quite easy to dveise from 9-4

    motivation
    set appropriate targets (e.g. get a certain volume of work done rather than 'do 3 hours revision' as then you make yourself focus and are motivated to work harder)

    Well I try to study around 3 hours a day after school. Doesn't always go to plan though xD. I'm currently studying Maths, Physics and Chemistry and those are subjects that I love which makes revising for them much easier. Since I've already finished the syllabus the only revising I do is loads of past papers. That's the only thing I do.

    Before I finished the syllabus, I just made notes and did some questions from the topics that I learned.

    I revise for about 6 "clean" hours a day if you exclude all the time wasted on my computer/while eating etc. It's not amazing, but I manage it by taking half-hourly breaks, splitting my revision into morning and evening sessions with a two-hour gap in between, and by trying to revise using different techniques to keep things interesting (say, explaining stuff in economics to my grandma as opposed to writing all my notes down off by heart).

    During the exam period (usually a day or two before the actual exam), I manage to do 8-9 hour revision days, but that's only due to the proximity of the exam that forces me to make sure that I've gone over everything and done the absolute maximum that I can.
