    I'm wondering, it's the end of February which means exam season is approaching. How many hours of revision should I be doing a day/week in preparation? Should it increase nearer to time? I do Economics, Business Studies and Psychology. I can say majority of my notes are completed, just a few more units for each subject.


    I'd say do a much as you can when feasibly possible, Take noted everywhere with you so you're practically revising everywhere you go.

    If you have a job, on your break revise, At college, revise in your free periods, do not use the free periods for dossing anymore or it will catch up with you .

    Revise where you can but remember what the experts say '20 minute blocks of revision is more effective than an hours cram'

    So i'd suggest trying to do that wherever you possibly can, as after your 20 minutes is up and you take a short break you start forming new connections in your brain to process and hold the information.
