Yes, it is too much. Remember: Study smarter, not harder.

Oh, haha! :lol:

That averages out to almost 3 hours a day, which is quite good. If you are performing well in tests, can keep up with your revision/HW and still have time to do your own thing, then yes, it's fine.

There’s no such thing as too much revision! 20 hours a week is a great amount for now.

Personally I think it’s really important to treat your mocks as real exams. I would step it up in the month before to 4 hours revision on school nights and 8 hours per day at weekends.

Imo the right approach is to study smart and hard.

I wouldn't call it too much but if you're doing it smart and being consistent then it could be the perfect number

There definetly is such thing as too much revision, and it causes burn out, which you do not want to be. I also think doing 9 hours (including school) every weekday and 8 hours Saturday and Sunday is wayyy too much for a month straight. The amount of revision you do shouldn't be tied to a number of hours rather how you feel the quality of your revision is. Do active recall and every single practice paper you can get your hands on and revise a little bit every day.

I mean someone else could end up getting 9 but without doing 20 hours a day. If you know you can do less and get good grades, why not do it?

Clearly doing that amount for the whole year would be excessive. But it is perfectly reasonable for a one month period before exams.

After your exams you want to feel like you’ve worked as hard as you can and tried your best. Tbh you should feel tired if you’ve been putting in effort.

Of course you should use smart revision methods but it’s also important to work hard. Revision
