I found that the best way to study for extended periods of time is to not so much regulate your study, but regulate every activity that could negatively impact it. It is much more productive to study at 100% mental capacity for 5 hours than a distracted or tired or underperforming 50% for 10 hours i.e. focusing on the quality rather than focusing on the quantity. It can be done by having enough amount of sleep, exercising regularly and keeping your body fit and fine, do not study same subject continuously for 5 hour block, change it quite often unless it will result in boredom and the most important having 10 minutes break after every 50 minutes of study. It will refresh your mind and improve your concentration towards studies. Take care!!

Wow, 12 hours is a long time! Listen to your body- if it's tired, have a rest. A 20 minute nap is great and does wonders for you afterwards! Self-care is most important in times like these. Sleep well, exercise well, stay hydrated. It's very easy to burn out, especially when you know you have to study for such a long time. Learning to manage your time and breaking down large tasks into smaller ones helps to make it easier. And if you need help, ask for it! Good luck. xx

Its good that you are planing to study 12 hours a day.but taking a short break in between study hours is necessary. Study for2 hours at a go and then take a break of 10 minutes to relax yourself and then again study. This will help you to concentrate and focus much more in your studies. Do exercise and also listen to music as it helps you to relax inspite of long study hours it keeps the mind focused. Do plan a routine and try to work according to it it will help you to distribute time wisely between study hours and also give time to relax as well. Main point remains is that never study at a span of long hours at a go. Just distribute the time and between study hours take short breaks.

You don't. Listen to your body. Break down study time into manageable time slots, example, study for an hour and then rest for 30 minutes.

You cannot study continuously but yes you can do one thing that is you can study one hour then take break for 5-10 minute and do things which you like in your break and study again repeat this and see you can study not only 12 but more than it

Make a time table. Identify first which subjects you find hard the most. Prioritize them since you find it hard. Make use of all the resources you have. Summarize and write down the important things. Make sure, you will still be able to eat and break for a while to avoid being exhausted. Practice having a good time management, this will surely helps you to accomplish more things. Make a time table, try to look for a effective way of studying. You could either write it on summarize, or with the whole thing in order for you to memorize it. But simply better to summarize and be more familiar with it.
