I am at school from 8am-4.45pm and need to revise for exams the week commencing May 28th. They are not that important, but I would like to do well. How long should I revise per night and at the weekends, and do you have any useful tips about how I can revise effectively? 

Thanks so much!!!

Firstly, you want to start by closing down or putting away any distractions such as your mobile or youtube/facebook/etc... Then start by getting your class notes and revision guide together.. You want to make notes from both of these that you can remember and by reading the heading you will automatically know exactly what this is... Just basically condense down the notes so that you can just use a heading and it will automatically remind you of the whole topic and everything you need to know..

Hope that sortof helped!

Also, in terms of how much.. try 1-2 hours a night whilst taking 5 minute breaks every so often just so you can remember it all!

Hope that helped :)

Aha thanks so much Ailis, really helpful! I always have like BBC iPlayer or something open at the same time and it stops me from revising for as long! 

Thanks in terms of how long, I think I'll do like 2-3 subjects per night for about 40 mins each.
