    During GCSES I revised for about 4 hours, and on weekends about 8 hours. Doing AS levels now I revise for about 2/3 hours a day outside of school, which will increase in exam seasons!

    I spend 2 ish hours in the evenings that I’m free (3days a week) doing homework and revising. On the weekends it’s about 3/4 on Saturdays and 2 on Sundays. I’m currently in year 12. During GCSEs I studied for 4 hours every night after school then basically all day at weekends.

    I am an A2 student now, but during my O-levels, I did studied a lot per day nearer to the exam. Basically because I missed a lot in that year and I didn't come from a good/average school. (Back then...) On days that I have school, the minimum time I revised for was 2 hours and 4 hours max. However, when my study leave began, I did studied for 13 hours max and on average was 8 hours.

    I was cramming like hell, and I am very sure I don't want to cram anymore.

    Studying a lot per day is very possible -- difficult, but possible. But you are just starting so I do think your plan on doing 1 ~ 2 hours a day sounds good

    Wish you all the stamina you need for studying!
