    So my Dad and I have decided to go to the US in one week for the majority of the Feb half-term holiday but now that it's getting closer I'm really worried that I won't do as much revision as I should be doing!

    My dad said I'll probably be able to do 2 hours a day and some on the plane, there and back, but I can't help but worry if this is enough?! I really struggle with revision/exam stress and always want to do as much revision as possible.

    I'm doing 4 subjects at AS-Level (history, Eng Lang, RS and Biology), so I'm working really hard. Will 2 hours a day for 6 days be enough?

    Do you have mocks after Feb half term? I do, and I'm doing 8am-4pm work experience all week (mon-fri) next week so I'm worried too
    To be honest, 2 hours a day is quite a lot if you are productive. I think you should be fine and you make make up for it before/after you go. 6 days with slightly less revision isn't a lot in the bigger picture and will probably be good for you to take a break, as well as motivate you to work harder when you get home if you feel like you've not done enough. Enjoy your trip to the US, I'm jealous!
