I'm not sure how much i should be revising to aim for my personal target grades. In my mocks i did 3+ hours of revision on the weekend before and did 2-3 hours every day during my mock week and i got:
Maths:9 (already achieved last year)
Further Maths: A^
additional maths: A
Chemistry: 8
Biology: 7
Physics: 7
Eng lang: 7
Eng lit : 6
Spanish: 6
DT: 6
RS:5
Computer science:7 (close to an 8)

I hope to get:
Further Maths: A^
Add Maths: A
Chemistry:9
Biology:8
Physics:9
Eng lang: 8
Eng lit:8
Spanish: 8/7
DT:6
RS:7/6
Computer Science: 8/9

Considering the exams will start in 4 months, about how much revision per day do you think I should do to turn my grades around? I plan to revise mainly doing past papers and creating flashcards on questions I get wrong. Without a length of time I should be revising for, it is hard for me to motivate myself for an end goal every day. Thanks.

There is NO such thing as motivation. I got good mock grades and an 9 in R.E Last year. Some days you don't want to work but you need to be self disciplined and work hard. Everyday, I have the urge to take the easy route and not work hard but I still study hard and work hard & never give up. In terms of revision I never count my hours I revise until I get tired and can't take anything in so rougly, I do like 7.5 everyday

Easy options = hard life, hard options = easy life
