I'm planning to be revising for 8+ hours starting from April holidays. If I take regular breaks between each session would that be ok? I'm planning to do 2 hours for each subject but every half an hour, I would take a 10 minute break in between the 2 hours. After 2 hours, I would have a half an hour break.

2 hours straight is way too long
You’ll only remember the stuff you revised at the start and end of the session, nothing in the middle
Try 50minutes solid then a 10 minute break

Yes, that sounds fine. 8 hours is a typical working day so although it sounds a lot it's doable with breaks. You will have to be self motivated to stick to it with nobody forcing you though. Even if you drop to 6 hours sometimes it's still worthwhile.

we had assembly ages ago, and the person said that if you revise for example 2 hours, alot of the information wont stay however, if you do revision for 25 minutes then take a 5 minutes break your morely to remember the stuff you are revising

It'll only be effective if your revision is effective. I'm at uni and the most I can effectively do without burning out is 5 hours

Of course it is, just get Modafinil to keep you going and you could probably do more than that.

8 hours is absolutely fine as long as you divide this time into small bursts of revision that are actually effective.

Same here, anything past 5 hours and I can’t concentrate anymore and get way too tired. Anything else I do is useless as I don’t remember it. Never understood how people do 8 hours + revision a day lmao

As long as you won’t burn out then it’s ok. Most people find it difficult to go from little to no revision to 4/6 or 8 hours a day.

I've been doing a lot of hours recently, but with a lot of breaks. I'm used to it.

I couldn't do it personally but I guess if it works for you then it's absolutely fine. So long as you take regular breaks - perhaps 45-50 minutes then a 10 minute break and a longer break every couple of hours (up to an hour).

Don't revise, I didn't and I did very well at GCSEs and A-Levels.

8 hours can work depending on how you go about it and how long you are doing it for. Personally, 6 hours has always been my sweet spot; I would revise for 3 hours or so shortly after I woke up and 3 hours before I went to bed. 8 hours will be harder to fit around, but not impossible.
