    I was just curious as to how much revision everyone's doing at this stage. I find myself worrying quite a lot about the amount of revision I do. I'm aiming to do 2 hours on weekdays and around 3-4 hours on weekend days. Although I'd really like to increase this and I don't always manage to that many hours. I'm aiming for 9s in most subjects.
    So I was wondering how many hours are others doing?

    Like half an hour on weekdays (alongside intervention at school ) and a few hours on weekend days.
    Just saying but I don’t think time spent should be compared as someone could spend hours revising something ineffectively whilst someone else could be doing an hour of really focused revision. Quality over quantity and all.

    Very true, I'm trying to care less on how much I'm doing and more on what I'm actually in the session of revision.

    I started properly Monday last week.
    Aiming to do 2 hours a weeknight then 4 hours per weekend day. I spend 1 hour after school 3 nights a week so I find it difficult to do much more on weeks. The Easter holiday is where I aim to do the “bulk” of my revision

    Need a 7 in maths to get onto the A-level course and 5/6s to get onto Biology and Chemistry but I'd like to go 7s all round apart from English and Art but that's a long story (basically I was lulled into art and English... well English is English; got a distinction in the speaking though so at least I have that going for me).

    I wouldn't panic if you haven't gone into full on revision mode yet as most people I know haven't started revising yet either though we are going through exam papers in class so I suppose we're all using that as a bit of an excuse to slack off. I do intend to start revising tonight, actually. 2 hours a night, weekdays and weekends, is what I'm aiming for. Easter holidays.... I'll aim for 2 hours though with more spare time I'll probably drift over that into 3 maybe 4. Good luck with your revision!
