    how often and how long should i be revising every day

    I don`t think there is a perfect formula for everybody. But it`s important that you start now instead of cramming at the end!
    Try to come up with a timetable and plan ahead how much time you`ll spend each day on each subject. Also, mix the subjects. Don`t do like all history and then all geography. Do a bit of each - it`s less boring! And try to spend your time on practising questions and past exam papers, instead of highlighting or re-reading notes.

    There is an actual article in the Guardian explaining this. It`s called "The way you`re revising may let you down in exams - and here is why. " There is also a blog called "What is the best way to revise?" by Seneca that is short and helpful.

    Also, leave time between your studies to do some exercise - football or whatever. It will give you the energy to carry on!
