    On a regular school day, probably about an hour or so per night; maybe more, maybe less, depending on workload and other commitments. Weekends I tend to do a few hours per day, again depending on what else is going on. Leading up to exams though, I do little but study >_<!

    I don't have biology or psychology but in year 12 I was taking 4 AS subjects and 2 A2 subjects, so I hope I'm suitably qualified to answer your question .

    Do as many as you like; you're not a failure if you don't get AAAA.

    4?! A day?! After school?! Bloody hell

    I got AAAB at AS level in Maths, History, Philosophy and Chemistry (I only got the B due to a fluke D in my ISA, I got 80-90% in the other modules). I did about 1-2 hours some nights, and other nights nothing at all. I paid attention in lessons, didn't piss about in my free periods, and all I had to do at home was the homework.

    Don't panic about meeting targets as long as YOU are confident with YOUR ability and can perform well in tests and practice papers.

    While I was studying for AS, I took up english rather late in the academic year (March) so most of my day I've spent doing english essays to catch up ( around 5-6 hours, usually at night.. NOT kidding, it was beyond torture) while maybe an hour a day for my other subjects.

    My friends usually do about 2-3 a night, but near tests and exams can reach up 5-6. Now that I'm done with my english, I still spend about an hour outside homework and prep.

    You won't believe this, OP, but I take exactly the same subjects as you, plus Critters.

    I can't really say how much I study though. I need to do more work at home. I've got loads of other stuff on as well usually.

    I did about 1 hour maybe a week at msot and got AAAAA in physics, bio, chem and double maths.
    Not to big myself up (well, slightly), but the main thing is I used that time to learn stuff at a higher level related to my course, such as learning Immunology off of medical textbooks. Really helps for interview and on a PS.
