    A-Levels requires a lot more time than GCSE. When my brother did it last year he would come home from school at 3:30. Sleep till 5. Work 5:30-9:30. Sleep till 11. Muck around till 12. Study 12-2:30. Sleep. Wake up 7. Go to school. He didn't work as hard on weekends though
    Whilst I realise some people have different working patterns and some people need to work harder than others, please don't try and pass this off to AS students as a normal thing to do. It isn't, at all. Yes, a-levels are a lot of work but it is entirely possible to do them, have a normal sleeping pattern and socialise too. I never did 6.5 hours of work a night, not even close, and I managed to get 5As. I know fine well that none of my friends did either and they all got good grades too.

    OP, if you think you can catch up with the RS work, switch. It's a perfectly respectable subject and you need to think not only about your grades, but all the stress that Chemistry seems to be causing you. If your friends are really *****y enough to give you a hard time about it, maybe you need to find some nicer friends.
