I'd say one hour each, but that's just what I find best personally. I think you get more out of it, because if you stop revising after half an hour for one subject, it's difficult to get started again  on another.

you should do 45 minutes study and then have a break. nothing will go in after that - no point doing an hour. if i was you i would do 45 mins on each and then repeat. maybe add an extra 45 to one if you hate it and find it difficult. never focus on what you like

revise 15 minutes then take a break then continue revising 15 again and repeat the process. but what i do is revise an hour then review what i have revised for half an hour then a 15 minute break.

I would do the hour on each but split the hour into two twenty five minute slots with a five min rest break after each, as then you're covering lots of material for one subject, but not overdoing it.

I have varied my revision times so see what works best for me. It will probably sound boring but I find that I need to do the same subject for a longer period of time for it to sink into my brain. I would do 45-50 minutes and have a break to make it up to an hour. I would do 3 subjects a day - one in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in the late afternoon/evening. I would do however much I needed to do and I vary the subjects in order and what I am doing each day. To answer your question, I believe that you need about 15-20 minutes to 'get in the zone' of revision, so if you are only doing 30 minutes, its a bit short to remember and revise much information. Hope it helps!

Personally i think half an hour of different subjects but like maybe one unit for each? That way you don't get bored simply revising one subject and if you take regular breaks you remember more (scientifically proven fyi)
