OK mocks have just finished and real exams start W/C 14th May

The school are putting on revision 2nd week of easter holidays.

I'm unsure what to do next with DD - let her have a break from revising at home and let her have down time between now and Easter?

Once we get over Easter holidays, she will have 3wks before exams start. I'm thinking as long as she puts in 2/3hrs per night (aswell as school revising) she can have her weekends to herself - does this seem ok?

I'm reluctant to push too much as she's had two lots of mocks since November and she thinks she already knows the subject content and all they're doing in school now is revision/doing test papers etc and she's starting to get might pee'd off with it all

Have a break now until at least after the Easter weekend.

Then start again at a steady pace that can be maintained.
Focus on areas highlighted as weaker in the mocks.

Do you think revising over two topics a night for an hour or so each, plusc what she's covering in school is enough.

I'm just finding it hard to find a happy balance between us and her.

She wants to go out and see her friends, i've said she can friday/saturday/sunday - but then she'll sometimes finish revising mid week at 7.30pm and wants to go out. Her argument is that she's had 6hrs in school going over work, come home and done another 3hrs - why can't she go out........ and with that argument i'm stumped!!!!
