    Just curious to know how much revision current year 11's (or previous ones) are doing over the February break? Not sure on how many hours to aim for per day and could do with a rough idea of everyone else's goals?

    Probably nothing

    If you really want to get those 6's, 7's and 8's, I would suggest revising, especially if you haven't done so yet or haven't finished making revision notes. A lot of people in my school prefer to make timetables, which may be helpful, but I don't like them as they stress me out (what if you don't finish the allocated subjects that you planned? Will you leave that and move on or finish it tomorrow?...) I prefer to just allocate subjects each day: it works very well for me. Just pick a few subjects that you would like to focus on during breaks and just skim read through it all and maybe make some notes. I passed my chemistry mock with an 8. Just don't overwork yourself because your brain needs rest- go out and have a brain-zen day.

    My goal is to finish at least 1 subject fully and make all revision notes for that subject (biology) so that during the Easter break, I have fewer subjects to go. You have to start somewhere, and for me, I feel better if I know that I have 9 subjects to go rather than 10 in total.

    Good luck.

    I went on a ski trip and broke my leg so literally none. Turned out ok though.

    few hours a day, planning to see black panther during the half term though.

    Im spending it making all of my physics and chemistry notes, I’ve completely finished biology however chemistry and physics I’m not interested in so it will be a struggle but I’ll motivate myself by the fear of failing
