Last year on my as's i didnt do very much at all. and got DEU. this year im retaking 2 AS'S and doing 1 A2 im doing about 4 hours a night. i have 10 hours of frees a week and about 7 of them i work in. and i do 4 hours on a sunday.
so hopefully i should improve that DEU. lol. im looking for at least BCC the end of this year!
Oh god maybe i should be doing more work. I rarely do any at home at all, i do quite a bit in frees but thats still probably only 6 hours a week, what some of you do per subject!!
I don't feel like there is tonnes i can do at the moment, well except with the art, should really work harder with that too!
Like, nothing outside homework. Even with homework, I set myself goals of how quickly I can get it done. An English essay I can do in about an hour if I concentrate, Law is much, much less - like 10, 20 minutes. And quite often, I do homework for one subject in the lesson before it is due in.
Basically, I actually concentrate in class, and I learn stuff there. If I really want to, I might research a little outside, but not a lot, and it's not actual 'work' - I'll read a legal essay or a report of a psychology experiment, or maybe some more work by the person we're studying for literature. But I'm not revising yet, I don't need to.
I also don't do work in frees. I don't really have anything to do. Me and my boyfriend just go home and .. you know.

I did none at all, regrettably. Hence only achieving ABC. If you value your future, you will do as much as you can. Take this advice from experience.
Psh. I did the same last year and got AAAAB(aa) in my AS levels, thank you very much.
Lately I've been doing about an hour of homework in each of my extra-long frees (I have 2 extra-long frees a week), and about 45 minutes at home in the evenings, but not every evening. I think I did about an hour of homework yesterday, and will probably do the same today if I don't stay exhausted like I am now! Almost all of the homework I ever get is for chemistry and maths - very rarely do I get any for physics or psychology! But I get so much chemistry homework that I often don't have time to finish my maths. But my maths teacher never checks it anyway!
The only time I've actually taught myself new stuff was when I was off ill about a week ago. That probably only took about 10 minutes!
So really I do 0 apart from homework.
