Please can you give me an idea of amount of time you recommend we revise a specific subject without breaks?

I agree with deer, thats what i try to do!  have it as 

Early Am = 9.30-10.3 

Later Am = 11.00-12.00

Early Pm = 2.00-3.00

Later Pm = 3.30 - 4.30 

Early Eve = 5.00 - 6.00

later eve = 7.30 - 8.30 

It gives you enough time to revise every subject ( if you are doing a lever or higher ) at least once a day and it gives you plenty of breaks and rest :)

We do agree on something! The games idea :-) Personally I don't think 20 minutes is enough time to get much done, that's all I'm saying.

I'd have said about 1 hour and a half, then have a quick break. The break could be a food break, or quick tv break, but if you want to avoid getting distracted too much/losing motivation to continue, try having a break from SOLID revision, and in a quick 15 minute break, do bursts of SHORT revision, for example, vocabulary for a language, or games for other subjects, or mind maps :-) Try and keep your brain active, and keep drinking water!

i wouldn't agree with jessica (sorry!) but you should revise for 20 minutes with a 5 minute break. the break doesn't necceserilly have to be somethinh like watching t.v or food. an ideal break is little things such as small hand games to keep your brain engaged etc. if you want more tips on breaks, revision times, revision tips and loads more, check out my "How To Revise Effectively" rescource :D trust me It's Worth It! :D

i would say that 1 hour every subject is fine, as long as you have 5 minutes break after every 30 minutes. this is so that your brain doesnt get too stressed and make sure you have a glass of water. being dehydrated makes you revise but not actually take anything in. A break can just be 5 minutes away from your books or laptop or whatever and just lying down for a while.

On average you should revise three hours a night, this should be 3 different subjects each for an 50 minutes with a 10 minute break.

Revise for 1 hour on each subject but take a half an hour break by watching tv or taking a break (try to stay away from facebook!!!)

I say do 1 hour on different topics but take breaks as you will be tired from non-stop revision, but be adamant to stay on one topic for one hour as if you try to do it for longer you will get bored and tired, and not do the revision. Also drink a lot of water,as it helps keep you awake

I do two hours per topic and then take a fifteen minute break but a one hour for lunch. I find i get a lot more done in longer time because you don't get interrupted. If i start to get bored i have a coffee or i eat some fruit or something, a bit weird but it helps me!
