    It's possible with good habits, strong motivation, breaks etc. but it might burn you out quickly. There's also power to spaced repetition, so it might be good to try to absorb a large amount of information, and then wait a bit, and then go at it again.

    I wish I was doing more work daily like you. Good luck!!

    Yeaa fair point, i think 6 hours a day is a decent amount still have 8 days till the exam, maybe just the last two ill go insanely long.

    10 is probably overkill, unless you're horribly behind. Which you shouldn't be if you've been doing 6 a day for a while.

    About 2 weeks now, im not behind im likely ahead....i think? Im not sure, you never really do know until after the exam, im also not one to finish revising until after an exam....so...yeah. Those 10 hrs before hand have nothing to do with my level of preparation, and everything to do with my level of dedication!

    Daily schedule is preety much wake up go to school as early as possible go to lessons ( no study leave yet), then after school its off to the library, then usually revision sometime in the evening. The GRIND IS real

    If you make it active revision aka. fun, you can do it for longer I feel. Spread it out also, into sessions. Make it interactive, as it also helps memory rather than just reading. You won't be watching the clock so much. You'll be more involved.

    Wha helped me realise this was a video. A man said:

    "allow me to ask you to visualize a polar bear, what do you see? Do you see the two separate words 'Polar bear' in your mind, or do you visualize an image that you associate to that of a bear? I'd think you'd find you had more often than not imaged it, and this is because your mind remembers things much better visually. So when learning, make it visually stimulating. Do it on a whiteboard for example, make it big with colors. Or use mind maps. However, reading will not stimulate the mind. So remember that"

    Lol nice of the uni...either way, uni is a breeze. At least in first year, just the coursework the marking is soo moody at the beginning, you will have to deal with getting the odd 40-50 lol. I got slapped with a 45 but have been consistently at a 2:1 since then.
