    People who have gotten into medicine how much did you revise everyday, aside from homework (weekends/weekdays)

    Even people who want to do medicine have you put in a lot of effort since you started sixth form

    I want to do medicine and I'm currently doing 2-4 hours of revision on weekdays, and 0-1 hours on weekends , should I be doing more revision weekends do you think? As my friend who also want's to do medicine says she does 5 hours on weekdays and 8-10 hours on weekends
    Any answers are welcome ))

    I never did any homework in sixth form.
    For revision, I did about 2 hours everyday on weekdays and 3-4 hours everyday at the weekends.
    I started this from november till my exams
    My final grades were A*A*AA
    I think you should defo do more on weekends imo, you want to have a perfect understanding of subject content by march so you can do past papers and ace exam technique

    Thanks, but the thing is that when I revise on weekdays I understand it after my x hours of revision, so what's the point of going over the same content (you understand) again Do you get what I mean?
    Or what I was planning to do from now on was to do questions from workbooks, online questions, textbook questions etc... Or do you think it's better to test myself on the notes and flashcards I made on the weekdays?

    Its an independent thing based on what works for you. You can always do more - repetition is good for memory, and you can always read around the subject to help your understanding. Whether you want to or not is another question.

    I personally only revised at all during exam time, but that would not work for everyone.

    For me, it was maybe a couple of hours a week during term time plus maybe 4-5 hours a day during exam time

    The general rule is one hour of revision a day for each of your subjects. I'd say stick to that until you get to exam season where you should be looking to spend around 1+1/2 to 2 hours on each subject a day.
