Hello,

As you all know exam season is fast approaching and has no sign of slowing! My question to all of you is what is an ample amount of time to be revising per day. I use my own variation of the Pomodoro Technique by doing 35 Minutes non stop study and 5 Minutes break. So how many hours should I be revising each day or if you don't know then How many hours are YOU revising each day. Any Helpful response is appreciated!

I don't know how many you should be doing, it will depend on the marks you want to achieve, whether you get plenty of study leave, and your ability.
Personally these easter holidays doing 6/7 hours a day: 10-1, 2-6. I'm quite tired, so I make sure that I take a lot of breaks.
I would recommend a minimum of 4 hours.

I always say that it's more quality over quantity. Start with a schedule of a few hours per day (2-3) on a school day, and 5-6 hours on a weekend/holiday. You'll soon learn what subjects need more time dedicated to them. For example, I know that I can learna whole psychology topic in a few hours but need a whole day for law. You'll soon learn your pace and can dedicate different amounts of time to each subject based on their requirements. If the 35:5 technique works for you then great. Personally, I've barely done anything after 30 minutes so that wouldn't work for me, but everyone is different. So long as you're putting in the effort and feel satisfied at the end of the day that you've done what you can, then no one can ask or expect any more from you.

To be honest with you I have no idea how many hours I ever revised for my GCSEs.. I'd say 6 is the maximum hours you should revise. Do 1 or 2 hours for different subjects. 2 hours one subject, another 2 hours another subject etc. However if you're feel like your strong in one particular subject then just do 1 hour and 1 hour and a half for that subject or maybe even half an hour. One advice would be to not over do revision because it'll seem like your cramping in so much. Do 6 hours everyday or even 8 if you want. But take a break and actually socialise too, obviously not with your friends coz it's more likely they'll be revising at that time. What I mean is socialise with family, go out for a walk or something, get fresh air, treat yourself for revising that much. It's better to be more relaxed before revising and after revising. Anyway good luck with your revision.
