    No minutes!

    I use my early morning frees well though. Went into college today at 8:30 to do some English coursework, and I got quite a lot done! I prefer to do all my college work at college, so that I can spend my time at home mooching around and not thinking about it

    Barely anything. The extra reading etc. that we get set I can usually complete in class. For essays I tend to do them at home but on average I only get like 4 or so a term for each subject besides Maths. Its a lot easier than people make out.

    On a normal weekday pretty much nothing...I have enough frees.
    Sundays are spent catching up on work that should've been in the week before :ninja:
    This all changes during exam time though. Then it's like 6 hours a day.

    I work solidly through all my frees and break/lunch times during the school week and (touch wood) that is generally sufficient to get most work done. I may spend about an hour every week night working aswell if necessary. I have to do more than this at weekends - probably 3/4hours+ on Sundays (usually I try to keep Saturdays as a day off). It is thankfully not too bad at all in my opinion - I find the workload much more manageable than GCSE, and frees are a God-send!
    Do you actually need to do that much though? For A-levels? You shouldn't really..

    I thought I did no work!!!
    but work frees usually and, though i have days i do nothing, i probably manage 1 hr or 2 each day
    Doing coursework at the mo and doing 3?hrs after school each day, 4?5? hours each sat and sun...

    and before you ask, yes... i also volunteer at the local zoo and museum each week, do something every lunch, am in 4bands/orchestras, horseride, sail and irish dance....

    so im not totally isolated and stuck in my room each day!!!

    I do nothing. CBA. Just homework during frees. The only time I revise is when the teacher sets up a topic test.

    I used to be doing about 20 hours a week in my own time in Year 12, but recently I've barely been doing 10 (because of coursework in controlled conditions).

    I really need to pick up the plot again...lol

    I don't have many frees. I go into college early and do work for about half an hour (it's amazing how much difference it can make!) I have 3 study periods a week for an hour, then probably do an hour a night at home on weeknights (except for Tuesday when I have work) On Saturdays I do nothing because I work and on Sunday I probably do about 3-4 hours.

    I only did the homework set, the day before it was due in. I revised for exams 4/5 days before them, and managed pretty good grades.

    Normally, I do between 1-5 hours a night. I do four essay subjects and Latin, so i'll often have an essay or a translation to do. At the moment, it's coursework time for English, so re-writing that can take a lot of time. I work through my frees quite often as well.

    I do as much as I can. Especially with tight deadlines then it is necessary for me.
    Usually I spend certain nights doing coursework/revision but just of late, I do what I can, when I can. Simples.

    Never more than 2 hours a night maximum, and only then if I've got a History essay due in the next day.
