    So I've started to studying for GCSES recently and was wondering if 2 hours a day is enough to get mainly around 4-5 As and Bs. I'm doing AQA and my subjects are:
    Maths
    Triple Science
    English
    Business
    History
    P.E
    French
    It takes me like and hour to understand and memorize a topic fully and then I do some practice questions on that topic. Is this enough?

    Different people need different amounts of time. Do as much as you need up to when you feel you solidly understand the topics you are learning in school. For me that would be much more than enough.

    I'd say thats enough. I did about 2 hours a night on weekdays and maybe 4 hours for each day on the weekend (e.g. saturday and sunday mornings). Make sure your revision is efficient and you focus on the topics you find harder though. Good luck!

    It's more than enough imo. If you're consistent i reckon you can get those A*s too. Good luck

    I think it's enough tbh.
    If its revision i think 2 hours is enough. However if it is learning a topic which you have learned a couple weeks ago and recapping it and doing questions on that topic, You should give it a bit more time.

    Everybody's different, but I'd say if you do 2 hours every day CONSISTENTLY then you will be able to get very good grades (maybe even A*s!) Best of luck!x

    Nope. Everyone knows you should do 5 hours every day outside of school.

    It really depends on the type of person you are. Inexcusably, I didn't revise enough for GCSE's, often doing a maximum of two hours out of school per week (increasing as I got much closer to exams) but I have a fairly good memory and did quite well in the end. You say it takes you an hour to memorise a topic so I'd say pair this with practise time and past paper questions and create a timetable broken down into subject topics for each week. Don't go overboard though and wear yourself out- sometimes learning exam technique well can help reduce revision hours. Realistically you know your own ability and how realistic it is that you'll get your ideal grades. Work accordingly to how hard you assume they'll be to achieve- it comes naturally to some and to others it doesn't.
