    Depends when you start revising, what your A-levels are, what your GCSEs were, how talented you are, how hard you'll work over the year...

    I had a teacher once who used to say that to do well at a level you need to spend as much time out of lessons working as you do in lessons.

    I think this may be a bit extreme but can't be a bad logic to work from, must make sure that the time spent studying is time well spent though. Give yourself specific aims for each study session, if not you'll just find yourself wondering and the work you do probaly won't be effective.

    Depends on your teachers too, e.g.:
    For biology i had 2 teachers, one taught Unit 1 and the other Unit 2 and 3..
    Unit 1 required NO revision come exam time and i got 95%
    Unit 2 and 3 probably required about a months worth of revision for 94% and 85% respectively.(CRAP teacher!)

    Depends on you, and how long it takes for you to be comfortable with past papers.

    There's no magic target. I didn't actually *revise* in the true sense of the word in the run-up to the exams, bar sitting down to learn my orals for my language exams. What I did do though is work hard throughout the year and it definitely paid off.

    I'm just not a revision kind of person and I tend to get away with not revising. That doesn't mean to say everybody will. Some people sit down for hours and still can't get it learnt. It's all about the individual approach with learning there's no special universal method.

    Its something that only you will know.
    Some factors you should take into consideration include:-
    How easily you grasp things
    How good your revision tatics are
    The A-level itself
    Whether you can handle the work load etc etc
