    [QUOTE=RedGiant;74273142]I'm learning ahead of my class as well as just reviewing already covered content, because I find it interesting. And saves me learning it in class so I can just revise it in class when it's taught first time round. Plus I do A Level maths in year 12 so I've got to learn and master AS by November (which to be fair isn't too tricky).[/QUOTE]

    Why are you doing A-level maths in year 12, we haven't even finished core 1 bloody hell, do you guys have to finish AS by november because that's the whole text book in under a month (don't know which exam board your doing but we're doing edexcel)?

    For some schools if you're doing further maths you do maths A Level in year 12 then FM in year 13. If you're not doing that you don't need to worry, the people doing regular mats at my school have only done a couple of chapters. And yeah we are doing edexcel as well.

    I am acc doing further i do around 3-4 hrs a day, because we got longer half term than others. As i study in academy and we had more school hours than others, so we have 2 weeks half term. But never mind i do maths,physics,economics and as level further maths,and our school is going ease on maths and physics but we almost completed a theme on economics till now(in just 4-5 weeks).
    omg same but tbh I do 2-4 hours a day. 2 when i am lazy and 4 hours if I am in the zone

    I think this half term I'm going to just do a few notes for the subjects I currently have controlled assessments ongoing in like history and ICT and I'm doing two past papers a week for maths for the upcoming T4 exam. My mocks aren't until the end of January and I don't have any English CAs or Foreign Languages coming up though so I'm not really feeling tons of pressure to start revising this early

    Roughly 6 hours per day, varying slightly with external factors. But as I say I genuinely enjoy learning ahead so I don't mind at all.

    I'm being quite productive myself, doing 6 hours roughly per day (where I just review the content already covered, learn ahead of my class, and practice applying maths knowledge to questions). I'm doing maths, further maths, physics and chemistry.

    Disclaimer: If you're not doing any, you're fine. I just like to learn ahead of my classes.
    Wow thats really good. Well done

    Yeah that's still a lot, honestly to me it's not about the amount of time you spend revising but how you actually revise. It's better to spend an hour revising actively making sure you understand the topic, than 7 hours mindlessly copying out pages of notes while not fully grasping the topic. So just make sure in the 4 hours you're ensuring that you understand everything you're going over and not just learning huge walls of text you don't fully understand and be sure to take revision breaks within the 4 hours to not overload your brain.

    Far too less for an ordinary A-Level Student, for sure! About an hour or nil for 4-5 days a week and then 4 or more hours for the remaining days of the week.

    For most of my tests thus far, I've barely passed them and yet I can't motivate myself to study. To make things worse, we are done with about 40% or more of each of the 4 subjects(50% Biology, 35% Chemistry, 40% Mathematics and 90% Physics) and I haven't really done enough revision nor does it seem likely that I'll soon in time. I have my mid-term examinations later in early December so I hope I'll be able to get to it sooner than later.

    Our college has started using a new grade boundary for all its maths assessments ... If you lose 1 mark our of 50 you get an A*, 2 marks and it's an A.. It's really demoralising lol

    I'd agree with this, it's not the time spent revising that counts (at least not always), it's what you gain from it that matters. And it's also different for every person.
