Hi everyone!
I am currently doing exam preparation for my externals and I’m studying roughly 1-3 hours a day, depending on how much work I have to do according to my revision schedule.
The only problem is that I play soccer once a week every Thursday straight after school and don’t get home until late when I am way to exhausted. I also have a game every Saturday where I am busy the entire day. With exams coming closer every day I am starting to worry this could ruin my “flow” or “momentum”

My question is (from personal experience), does taking two day off a week from studying going to affect me badly? I work like crazy every other day and sometimes even during my lunch times at school but I hear lots of people working every single day.

Let me know what you think

Thank you

The amount everyone should study is totally up to the person and how they work. It sounds like you are putting a lot of effort in and working hard - so i wouldn't be worried. In fact, I think it is good that you are taking breaks (especially since your breaks involve exercise which is good for brain function).
I find that it's note about how much you study, rather how efficiently you study
