So i've been stressed out lately about my upcoming GCSE exams, literally to the point of breakdown (i get really really bloody nervous) i'm starting this little revision schedule which my school gave to the whole of Year 11 recently, it's like an adaptive timetable with our exam dates on them, our teachers recommend 3x 20 a day (1 hours) worth of revision + 5 mintue breaks inbetween, is this sufficent enough?

1 hour a day is not enough.
Go for around 7 hours a day

I would hope they mean including education commitments! I assume you still have school during the day, so 2-3 hours after school I’d have thought would be optimum, and then give yourself wednesdays off or something to relax a bit. If you can do a couple of hours Saturday and Sunday as well that would be even better!

He's being sarcastic. One hour is fine and taking breaks is very effective method of revising. It's called the Pomodoro method after the mexican dish.
I'll give you some advice though: take a second to think and have plenty of breaks. I know how stressful exams can be; I'm taking anti-depressants in large part because of exam stress so you need to calm down and de-stress. A little and oftern is the the best and most successful way of revison. I recommend Seneca learning as it's simple to use and can help you gain up to 2x as many marks! Don't stress about it; I'm sure you'll do fine. I believe you can do amazing!

Good look with the revision and don't give up! You can do this
