I'm currently going all out this Easter and doing 8hrs a day..
5hrs of either one of my science
1hr of maths
1hr of either English language or English literature
1hr of drama, r.s or catering.
Is this excessive? I feel quite tired and this is Day 4.

That’s really intense. It’s up to you how much you want to do as long as you leave some time for yourself as well. Remember to keep a few hours to yourself and do something you like, watching a movie etc.
What methods do you use to revise? I literally have no motivation.

I would say don't do 8 hours. If you think logically, say you get up at 8 and go to bed at 10. 8 hours would mean you only have 6 hours of rest which is so unbalanced. But in rest periods you need to eat, wash, do things you like, have time to wake up, have time to settle down, it doesn't give enough time for you. And more, when you go back to school, if you have been this intense you might feel exhausted before any exams even begin. It is unfair on you.
I would say the key is little and often. Try maybe 40 minute- 1 hour sections of work and make sure there is plenty of time to socialise, go outside and have fun. In terms on how much you should spend per subject, make priorities, what subjects are you taking further past this level?, what subjects do you struggle with?
Hope this helps and good luck

YouTube videos and notes for science, pass papers and mrbruff on YouTube for English language. I do practice questions for maths but failed my mock with a 3 so really need some help as I need to pass it!
For RS I just use key word flashcards and do the odd practice question here and there...

Thank you for your advice. I just feel like I’m not doing enough and I only just started yesterday. I would learn something then not be able to remember it a week later and it’s stressing me out.
