Personally I am studying 1-3 hours a night (for equivalent exams).

Stop reading here if you were making this to compare

However, the number of hours shouldn't really be the most important thing. Instead, the content you are covering and if the information is actually being taken - is the most important thing in my opinion. There's no point studying for four hours a night if nothing is going in or you can't concentrate. Anyways, if you are using this as a gauge for your own, I'd experiment and see what works.

i completely agree, if you don’t know how to study effectively for yourself then no matter how long you spend studying, it will effectively be useless.
personally the amount i am revising depends on what is going on that day and what time i get home but i find that apps like memorise have other subjects other than just languages that can be useful for studying on the go (such as poetry in english literature). but on average i probably spend around 1-2 hours on weekdays and 3 on weekends

You guys are right! It`s all about studying effectively!

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.
A good idea is to try using online resources, like BBC bitesize and GCSEPod for a quick overview of the topic and then spend most of your time practising questions using Seneca Learning and Quizzlet

For my GCSEs/IGCSEs, I studied about 1-2 hours daily for about 3-4 months (slightly before the mocks until the end of exams). Don't base your revision off time, instead make targets of what you want to achieve. Cover the syllabus, do past papers, understand (most) of the content. Studying the night before exams is also extremely important, as the stress and additional adrenaline in your body gives you more concentration provided that you're focused.

Best of luck! Don't stress too much, I think GCSE examiners are quite kind and will award marks when they see you tried. If not, I wouldn't have got the grades that I have today.
