    Well so far this week none
    I intend to lock myself in my house and do English coursework all weekend though, and starting after half term do 2-3 hours outside college a day. Whether I can actually motivate myself to that is another thing ..

    I've been known to do all nighters for mere pieces of homework drivel.

    Hey, just curious how long everyone spends doing work on a weekday, this can include coursework/homework/revision?

    To start: I personally do usually around 1 and a half/2 hours a night.

    its GCSE you should be doing **** all :yes:

    I would usually revise, i.e. read my textbooks for the first time just a few minutes before the school bell rang in the morning.. Thank god for my excellent memory. I read something once and I know it by heart.

    At gcse's I did none
    This guy's got the right idea. Not including coursework, i think the total number of pieces of homework i did throughout year 11 wouldn't reach double digits. And i did pretty well!
    The amount of time you spend revising does not directly correspond to how well you will do. The goal of revision is to make sure you understand the topic, not to create endless revision notes and to reach a time limit.
    Watch out for that.

    My 'planner' said that at gcse you were supposed to do something like 2 or 3 hours per subject a week.....so I would have been revising/working for 22-33 hours a week extra to school, if I even did that amount over the entire GCSE course I would be amazed

    Generally I barely do anything during the week, then the weekend comes and I have a mountain of homework to do for Monday so I spend a couple of hours on a Sunday doing homework. I usually start to revise a couple of weeks before the exam, get bored, stop and cram two days before. I am enjoying being able to do this and pass before starting my A levels :p:
