    How many hours a week/day do you recommend to revise, and should i be revising everyday or take some days off?

    I'm achieving all high 6's to low 8's, this is what I do:
    So I always complete homework on the day it's set and count that as revision for that subject.
    I revise everyday, doing 3 subjects a night on a school day (this isn't particularly 3 hours)
    I alternate on weekends, in 2 weeks within a week; I will work for 4-7 hours on Saturday and Sunday, on another week I will work on the Saturday then only do a few hours on Sunday and another week I will work on Saturday but not Sunday at all.
    I do also take a break every Saturday morning as I attend a drama club.
    It's really not about time taken, but quality of your revision instead - I like to look at sessions spent on a subject, rather than hours! Always focus on your weakest subjects and the ones you will be pursuing next year, but don't leave any out (that includes RS!)
    Honestly, I get stressed very easily and sometimes just have to take days off, your mental health should always come first and you may need a lighter workload than me, or you may be able to manage all - it's important to focus on you, you can do this!!

    Damn, that's a lot.
    Me, I half pay attention in lessons, do homework;

    (some?) homework; mostly on the bus



    then just before the exams I stress super hard and study like crazy.
    That's super stressful though. I'm honestly too lazy to regularly study.
    My grades aren't too bad I think; my average is about 7.3. Apart from damn French, everything 6-9.
