I have A-Level mock exams in 6 weeks and I want A Grades. Does anyone have any tips/advice on preparation for mocks, revision, when to start revising, how much revision to do every day, etc?

You should be revising already. If not, start now. I recommend about 3-4 hours per day, more on weekends. Do practice papers, make mind maps and quizzes etc.

Honestly if you want to get an A* you could find a private tutor, buy 2017 past papers with mark schemes for your subjects (make sure its of the same exam board) and revise from them.
How much revision would you recommend per day?

The amount of hours spent for revision doesn't matter, but how much you actually learn does.
Focus first on topics that you don't understand and then revise for other ones later. I'd say 2 hours per day for revision + homework would be enough. Also, revise whenever you can on weekends I'd say at least 3 hours a day, but If you'd revise too much you could get bored & tired which wouldn't help.

I was planning on doing 2 1/2 Hours Monday-Friday and then 6 hours Saturday & Sunday. Not sure if this is too much?

fam it doesn't matter how much time you spend revising it matters whether you understand it. set goals and achieve them regardless of how long they take you.

i mean the distractions that make you procrastinate for hours upon end such as youtube, facebook and etc. Leave some time out of each day though to do what you want.
