    how many study hours a day?

    so how many hours do you study each day?
    ^yes, i've been told it's not about the number of hours rather it's the quality of the hours spent studying. quality > quantity

    It is about the quality. But during year 12:

    Term 4 of year 11 (start of yr 12) = Mainly homework + a bit of study for assessments
    Term 1 = Mainly homework + cramming for half yearlies
    Term 2 = Mainly homework + studying for assessments + cramming for trial 1

    Now around 3 hours a day I'd say.

    We get heaps of homework

    Re: how many study hours a day?

    On weekdays when we didn't have exams maybe like an hour and a half for 2-3/5 days (not including hw)

    On weekends could be anywhere from 3-8 hours a day excluding hw

    But during the exam periods practically all day apart from a few breaks in between and eating etc.

    Like everyone says its quality>quantity

    Also take burnout into account? are you the type of person who burns out from excessive study or not? Some people just have the motivation to keep on learning (and/or either enjoy it to the extent that it isn't considered work at all)

    I usually study 1 hour max everyday if I only have homework, if I have upcoming assessment tasks due or exams, then I put in an extra hour for that.

    Re: how many study hours a day?

    I studied for 5-7 hours a weekday and 10+ during weekends during my HSC. It landed me a $47K scholarship so i can't not recommend it.

    Looking after yourself is very important of course. The most important thing is exercising diligence.

    Re: how many study hours a day?

    Hmm also depends on what you define as 'study.'
    Other than homework and assignments, there should also be a separate time to study (like doing past papers, making notes etc.)
    So like 2hours and 50 minutes seems viable, in addition to homework and assignments.
    But also reallllyyyy hard to manage coz procrastination takes half that time :/
