    4 hours! What grades are you aiming for?
    B’s and C’s. I’m a slow learner so in reality, i would only take 2 hours at most.

    Toastiekid quality over quantity yes!

    Answering questions for a short time is much more effective than reading notes for endless hours!
    Also doing a few hours a day is much better than doing a study marathon at the end.
    Try using online resources, like BBC bitesize and GCSEPod for a quick overview of the topic and then spent most of your time practising questions using Seneca Learning and Quizzlet

    I think it really depends on how much in class revision you're doing and what type of person you are. I'm aiming mostly for 7s and 8s, and i find that the after school revision for maths and english is really just going back over/ finishing the revision we do in class. The timetable i try and stick to is about 2 hours on weekdays (that'll be easier after easter because of the amount of time i'm spending after school on my product design!) and about 3 hours at the weekends. Ideally, that means about 16 hours a week, but in reality is more like 11-12

    Sounds pretty good and a nice amount of hours too with pretty decent target grades 😊
