    "Can someone tell me how my own brain works?" is what you're asking. If you feel it's enough, great. If not, do more.

    Much better than what I'm doing.

    Regular bursts with breaks will be most effective in retaining all that info. Make sure you're using that time not just looking at a textbook but vary it with different methods of study.

    Use rewards to motivate. You're doing great and well on the way to what you want to get :proud:

    If you do that consistently, I'm sure you'll do well. Be sure not to burn out. Take breaks and the occasional day off! It is only January after all

    I think it's enough 😁 They say a good method of how long you should spend is matching the amount of time working at home and the amount of lessons you have a week. So if you have 15 hours of lessons, the idea is that you should do 15 hours of homework/revision
    So I think what you're doing is fine- you don't want to burn yourself out just before the exams
