    Hello, I have my exams in the summer of 2017. Any tips on how to revise and how many hours a day. Is 1hr and 30min good on weekdays or 2 hours (starting On Monday). And 4-5 hours on Weekends and that will increase to 5-6 hours , the closer i get to exam season. I'm quite smart i think but if i revise i know hopefully i can do better.

    I'm probably lacking mathematics because of the new style of questions but overall im good. Also English Literature is a big problem. I'm doing AQA. Any tips? Please

    What texts are you doing for english lit? I have notes for Silas Marner, Merchant of Venice, and A View From the Bridge, which I could send you if you're studying any of them?

    Also, is that 2hrs on top of normal work, or are your teachers now setting revision as homework?

    It depends on how much you have done. i.e. if you have no notes or anyhting yet, you should be putting in alot more hours
    My goal is to have all my new notes 100% organised for every subject + convert my notes into exam style qustions for every subject (100s of questions per subject) finished by february half term.
    That means I'm putting in 1hr of somewhat passive revision every day (3hrs/day on weekends) up untill then, ontop of homework.
    This means that after feberuaury half term, I can choose a subject or two each night to quiz myself with 20 questions or something, (or half an hour of memrise for languages vocab) + practice papers, and I wont be stressed atall and with plenty of time before May

    My plans are to go to sixth form and do Biology and probably mathematics. Depends on my grades.

    3 hours a day is kinda hard considering, i do a sport and need about 2 hours after school to run and Train. Also i have to wake up at 6am. To be honest, i think i will just get up at 5am and revise for 1 hour.
