how many hours to study in year 10Watch
Basically I would say that instead of doing core studying in year 10, you should focus more on making resources! Also, whenever you have a big test or mocks coming up, you want to study very hard like you're doing your real GCSEs. This will help you when you're doing your real exams because you will have already been increasing your stamina.
Personally, I revised what I had learnt each week between lessons for each subject. This meant that I could sometimes go ahead of my class and it meant that I had consolidated by the time of exams.
Now, not everyone might agree with this, but we had 6 hours of lessons in an 8.5 hour school day, and I usually had free periods, so I studied for 3-4 hours a day. Sometimes, I studied during lunch, in my free periods and then after school. We finished school at 5:30, but we had 2.5 hours worth of breaks, so i used them too. This meant that after school, I would do around 2 hours of study (dinner in between) and then 1.5-2 hours of homework after that and be done by around 9:30. On Saturdays, we had lessons from 9-11 and then I would study from 12-7 (meals and breaks inbetween), so weekends are also super useful if you want to really consolidate on your work. On Sundays, I would work from around 12-5, and before and after that, I would read a book, watch a movie or go out with friends, so I still had some social balance.
All in all, I am doing ten subjects and so I studied about 32 hours a week. This was extremely wild and I am now going into year 11 with the mock grades: 8888888876 (we dont get 9s in year 10 so the 8 is our highest grade), so it all worked out well in the end!
This means that if you're doing 8 subjects, I would say between 2-3 hours per subject per week (maybe even four if you can) and this includes homework, and you should be all good!
