So my Head of Sixth Form says that we should be doing 50 hours of work a week if we're doing 4 A-levels. (8 hours/weekday, 5 hours each on Saturday and Sunday). To me, this seems a bit ridiculous. I'm doing 3 AS Subjects, 1 of which I'm also doing at A2. Are 50 hours really necessary (including lessons?). Considering I've been getting about 3 hours' worth of homework per week (over all subjects) so far. I know that'll increase, but not by much.
I fail to see the point in continuing to live if that much of your life is sucked up by schoolwork. I got 11A*s at GCSE, but only by sacrificing all other aspects of my life for 3 months. I definitely want to avoid this again if possible.
that seems far too much, considering it's only september! doing that much work right now would tire you out so you'd be in no fit state for exams. I do 1hr of revision for each subject per day, as well as any homework given, which i think is enough for now.
That's a ridiculous amount at this time of year, just do enough so that you understand the material and can obtain good grades.
it's a walk in the park, teachers usually say that to get their underachievers in line
