    I have been thinking, is it better to revise from a set amount of time or by a task(s)? I tend to find if I set to do 4-6 hours a day for revision I won’t tend to stick to it, but if I do it till I get a certain task or tasks done then I’m better at sticking to it. What do you guys think?

    Well in my personal opinion, i can't stand sticking to a certain amount of time. It might be because i'm terribly unorganised but things like timetables just don't work for me. I prefer to just pick a topic, watch a bunch of videos on it and answer some questions until i truly understand it, making it hard for me to forget. I think trying to force yourself to do however many hours of revision will just stress you out, so it's unnecessary.
