As I take only linear courses for my A level (Chemistry, Biology and Business respectively), I don't have an AS examination yet I still have an internal exam set by the school that will cover everything I have learnt so far in my first year. Although these exams are not actually externally assessed they count as my UCAS predictions and so I was wondering how much revision I should do for them. At the end of this week, they are 2 weeks away and currently I have done roughly 2 weeks of on and off revision due to a lack of motivation. I was thinking 2 weeks of 10-12 hours per day should suffice but not sure?

For me personally, I only do the day before.
But, I revise generally throughout the year, and I retain a lot of knowledge that way. The day before, I just revise what I do not know, or am forgetting. This technique normally works for me, and I get an average of a B-C grade, which is enough for me. 10-12 hours, I believe is too excessive, and you'd risk yourself burning out.
