Hey there, I think this will benefit a lot of people in answering their questions.

Today when I got home from school, I powered through some Physics for about an hour, then rested and stuff till now. Problem is I'm now too knackered to finish off and round it up. Is it normal to be so worn out and rusty on stuff by 7?

And also, what time do you revise up till? what time is rediculous to be revising? Just a couple of questions that I'm curious about leading on from the earlier one.

Hey! I revised for 6hours today and by the end of that i was pretty 'rusty'. I personally believe that you stop when you're tired. I've tried revising when tired and it isn't efficient at all! Get a good night kip and you'll be ready for some solid, intense, brain-inducing revision tomorrow. I also find it better to revise first thing in the morning as that is when your brain is the most 'fresh' thus, enable you to revise more effectively.

Im not sure its healthy to be spending all your time revising.
Personally, I only do necessary homework during the week, read over my notes and such. I leave 'revising' untill the end of a unit so I have answers to everything and can therefore make links and such in my head.

Maybe try chilling out some evenings, your mind will die otherwise!!!!!

You sir are a machine :p: I don't go that mad till nearer exam time though.

I did two frees revising in school today actually, and I totally agree with what you say about the morning. If you revise the night before, repeating stuff, you remember it all in the morning. It's the only way to make physics and chemistry stick!

Its only October, why not revise for 2-3 hours a day at the most.

I know a week before my GCSE History exam, I revised for 10-11 hours a night. I stayed up making mindmaps then sat and read my History book. I had a half hour break though. Not every night, but most nights leading up to it was about 5-6 hours.

Indeed! I find it good to re-cap my revision notes just before bed then whilst you sleep, it enables your brain to process this new information far more thoroughly so then when you wake up the next morning, EUREKA! I cannot emphasise how beneficial it is to use ALL your frees wisely. It's best to get the real strenuous, brain-aching stuff out of the way in the morning frees- it will make more sense rather than revising it 10 at night:yep:

the best time to stop revising is after your exam, preferably just before actually.

Definately, I assume you're in Year 12, year below me. If so, that's the best way to do it, repeat untill you can do it without much thought, and understand it. Everything seeps in twice as fast now, from AS revision methods.

I find it easier to revise at night, so i usually start around 6 or 7pm and finish around 12 (or if I have an exam the next day 1am) obviously with breaks every so often. I suck at morning revision. I just wake up, i feel groggy and just eurgh. no way. the earliest I can start revising is afternoon time. Everyone is different so theres no time when people should/shouldnt revise/

Well you should finish the revision a few weeks before the actual exam. This way all you have to do is simply read your notes once/twice a day whilst you see everyone else dashing about pulling clumps of their hair out as they have left it till the last minute:rolleyes:

You should stop revising when the stuff your dreams are made of becomes educational.

Each day, I generally stop revising an hour and a half before I sleep.
But I don't start revising the same time everyday :P
