    Right now I do a minimum of 1 hour revision a day, usually aim for 2 hours but I get at least an hour in every day. I can't really do more than that personally because I lose concentration and also if I don't have some free time to relax I feel horrible by the end of the day. Just wondering if this is a good amount because I can't help worrying that I'm not doing enough.

    Yeah I'd say it's fine, providing you're using the majority of your frees to do work and spending time working at the weekend.

    Absolutely not good enough. They recommend at least 5 hours a day.

    I aim for 5 hours but I know that's just not how some people revise effectively. However it seems to work.

    OP should defiantly take a leaf out of your book, and also a long hard look in the mirror.

    How the hell do you get 5 hours? I get home at 4 from college most days, by the time I would've finished it would be 9

    I live 5 minutes from school so I get home at 15:30, start at 4 and revise until 9.

    It's 8:20 shouldn't you be revising?
