So, I just started Year 9 a couple of weeks ago (Though it's my 10th year of schooling, since I shifted systems, but never mind) and my teachers seem to have gone a leetle overboard in the homework department.
I'm sure it has something to do with us being an Islamic school and the fact that, since Ramadhan is coming up, some students have asked the teachers to reduce workload slightly during it (which is perfectly justified, since we'll be at mosque for the whole evening).
Anyways, the teachers interpreted this as, 'It's time to have homework for seven subjects a day, girls, and we'll cut down a little soon, but don't you know your IGCSEs are next year?'
Yeah. Not good at all. Especially since they don't show any signs of cutting down any time in the next couple of months.
So, after that long, pointless rant, I have only this to say: Is this a universal (I)GCSE years thing? Anybody else want to rant? And does anyone, anyone have tips on keeping up with homework, tests, studying and other responsibilities at the same time?

A lot is relative. Tell us how many hours they expect you to study and how many you plan to study to put the thread ontopic
They don't measure homework in hours here—actually, there's really no homework system at all. It depends on the teachers. I'll have to try and figure out how many hours it is...

it goes from loads of homework to a lot of revision but no homework. i've got loadssss of homework to do over the summer.
Revision I can deal with. My only problem right now is that the homework takes up so much time that I can barely even read the textbook. Which is very important, because our teachers have a nasty habit of teaching us stuff that's not in the syllabus and forgetting the stuff that's in it.
