    I don’t think there’s a specific amount of time you should be studying however it has been proven that your productivity increases if you take small breaks in between.. not necessarily every 15 mins more like every 2 hours.

    Find out what works for you for my mates is silently studying for prolonged periods of time. Me I need some noise. I made a wee ikea desk taking up one wall in my room and lock myself in there so I’m not distracted. I play calm music or a movie in the background ... something I know so it’s not overly distracting. Drink water taht helps.

    I always found looking at past papers to be the most helpful. Go back previous years and you will find a pattern on the types of topics and questions which come up. There’s always a clear and obvious pattern. Most likely it’s the same questions which come up with a word or two changed. So work backwards.


    Use textbooks and online resources to help answer these questions. Anything you don’t get .. ask you teacher now because it’s your only chance before sitting any kinds of assessment. They’ll help you understand. Do past papers on a timed exam condition. So go to your room pretend your doing an exam and see if you can manage to answer the questions to a sufficient quality under timed conditions. Online resources like tutor 2 u and study wise have online revision notes and mock quizzes. However I’m not sure if your specific classes will come up in this. I also found doing mindmaps for each topic and then consecutively writing them out helped.

    In regards to YouTube channels I dunno because you’ve not said any subjects. Lemme know if you need any more help.
