Enter my coming exam day to anki and make it schedule my cards to review them all before the exam day

Is there any way to enter my coming exam day to anki (let’s say 8 weeks from now) and make anki reschedule all my cards to see them all before that day and i can determine certain number of times i want to review for cards (let’s say not less than 6 times for card and not more than 15 times for card)

I think you can do it by changing the settings of the options group.

From the manual:

Deck options primarily control the way Anki schedules cards. It is recommended that you spend a few weeks with the defaults to get a feel for how Anki works before you start adjusting options. Please make sure you understand the options before changing them, as mistakes could reduce Anki’s effectiveness.

Deck options are accessed by:

  • Clicking the gear icon on the Decks screen.
  • Selecting a deck on the Decks screen, and then clicking Options at the bottom of the screen.
  • Clicking on More > Options while in review mode.
  • Pressing o while in review mode.

Maximum Interval

Allows you to place an upper limit on the time Anki will wait to reshow a card. The default is 100 years; you can decrease this to a smaller number if you’re willing to trade extra study time for higher retention.

Please, read the manual for more: Deck Options - Anki Manual (
