    Erm, none really.
    Just my homework at the moment and then be done with it.

    EDIT: Thank God, just had to check through the thread that it wasn't just me. For a second there I was worried that I was a terrifically bad A-Level student bound to fail miserably.
    There's no point in doing extra work unless you'll use it in the exam or you really enjoy doing it. I guess some of the Philosophy reading I do might count as 'extra work' but none of it really has anything to do with my course .

    6 hours divided by 4 subjects that i do plus homework. So that averages out at like 2 hours a subject

    What?? I do my homework... so about 1??! How do you have time to do 6 hours?!
    it's really not as much as it sounds. Even if you do one hour per subject every day you can easily get in 6 hours in a week.

    i did about 5 hours per subject last year for AS's and i got AAAA in bio, chem, sociology and psychology. By fitting in an extra hour per subject per week it adds up to quite a bit more by the end of the year.

    I do about 5 days a week after college excluding tuesdays for dog training and fridays for a damned break, which leads to about 1.5- 3 hours in those nights I do, so about minumum 7.5, maximum would be like 10-11 hours.

    I sort of guessed you did that much looking at your GCSE results

    Depends how well the teacher teaches it.
    For Inorganic Chem, I don't do any extra work cause I understand it, but for Organic Chem I have NO IDEA what the guy goes on about so I'd have to do reading in my own time on the stuff :/

    These threads always make me feel guilty. I look over my notes and do the homework, that's it.
