When I was 15 I revised 30 mins per day. Came out with a As and Bs at GCSE. I think 6 hours is good for GCSEs, more the merrier but don't burn yourself out.

It's about the quality of revision not the amount of hours you put in.

I wrote up a HIVE article a week and a half ago for people who leave revision to last minute and there's a section in there about working efficiently: Tips for Last Minute Revision.

Your way of revising is very good actually, it forces recall so your 6 hours is more like 10 for other people because it's effective.

i do questions and i guess alot in 5/6 hours, thank you now i feel more assured!
I didn't change my attitude at A-level and scraped one B. :laugh: But you certainly seem to be intelligent, and you understand good revision techniques so I'm sure you'll be fine.

Hi Coolkitkat23


You've had some great replies already, and revision is a personal thing, but using the SMART revision technique can be beneficial.


Study SMART Not Long: It much easier to implement a regular and successful study schedule if you are studying SMART.
o Set yourself goals.
o Make study techniques that promote greater results.
o Ask for help.
o Reward yourself for progress.
o Take a Break.

S: Set yourself goals for study. For example, make up an exam/essay question and work towards answering it.
M: Remember VARK. Are you a Visual learner, Audio learner, Reading learner or Kinetic learner. Use study techniques that will promote the best learning for yourself.
A: If you are struggling with anything ask your teacher for help. Their job is to help you with your studies. Alternatively, use study guides or the internet to help breakdown tough subjects.
R: When you hit your goals, complete work and meet important deadlines reward yourself with treats. For example, make watching an episode of your favourite show your reward for completing tasks.
T: When you’ve finished studying take breaks. Go for a walk, hang with friends or get a cup of tea and watch TV. It’s important not to overdo revising.

Always ensure you take regular breaks. Exercise is great to relieve the stress of revision, even if it is just a walk.

Good luck!
