Depends on how much commitment you want to give... I did an hour a day and upped that to 2 hours/day during my mock exams...

Probably best to take it easy in Year 10. I didn't do any but I reckon maybe an hour a day would be good.

I just wrote notes and flash cards for a topic when we finished learning it in class. These notes come in handy for year 11

Hey,

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!

In year 10 you should do your homework to the best of your ability and revise for class tests when they're set, but you don't need to be studying more than that. Just make sure that you work hard in school and on the work that you're given, and that you ask your teacher if you don't understand something in class. Write the best class notes you can and you'll be ready to revise for end of year mocks and things in the easter term (If you're doing a language, you might want to get started on the vocab list by doing 5 words on memrise every so often, but you should make the most of year 10 before exam prep seriously starts in year 11
