    If you do more then 4 A-levels this question is aimed at you. Please do not take this as intentionally offensive but do you people actually have lives outside of studying? For example do you do any extra-curricular activities like sport, drama, or other societies?

    of course you do :rolleyes: i will be doing 7 a-levels but they all fit my school time-table as critical thinking and chinese doesn't count. yes i have a life outside studying and i'm not going to let it be squashed by a-levels, but being realistic i probably won't be able to hang out with friends, go swimming, play the piano etc as much as before, but i will let you know

    I did 4 A Levels and yes I did have a life outside of studying; I was a House Captain, was head of the school Literary Society, was actively involved in Drama and, was an NCO in the school CCF and I was the treasurer of the school's sixth form bar... (Which meant I got cheap/free beer and wine all year )

    What about a life out of school activities?

    I went to a boarding school... there wasn't too much opportunity for life outside of school... though there was much socialising to be had in the school senior club... and lots of alcohol.... though unfortunatley the evil fascist oppressors (The labour government) have now passed a law meaning that all 16-18 bars that boarding schools have are too be closed idown from January 2006 Fortunately though I no longer go to school and thus miss life without senior club

    I'm doing 4 A levels, along with Critical thinking, and I do a hell of a lot outside school. Probably too much . But good time management helps.

    Well I'm going to be doing 3 full A-Levels in 1 year which is kinda like doing 6 AS's (or something like that) according to some people and I will also be doing GCSE biology. While doing this I will also be carrying on with my danceing on Saturdays (which is now AS or A2 like classes at Pre-intermidiate in modern, and I do R.A.D ballet grade 6 which includes pointwork which is an amazing amount of practice) while training basically each day to be up to standard for my dance school . I actually want to go back to my drama group but that depends if my parents have enough money but at the moment that is looking unlikely. It also looks like I'm going to be part of a band soon as the singer and song writer so that will give me something to do outside school work and dance. There again it is something that I would take seriously while every now and then when we can having a laugh as it has to be fun too .

    So yeah I will have a life outside A-Level studying even though to me it means just as much work for my dance and music as my A-Levels. I will be making sure I see my friends aswell, it's just that my school work for this year starting in September means more to me as I have alot of pressure on me and I want to do really well for myself . If all that means not seeing my friends that much I'm sure they'll understand. .

    I just hope I don't explode or meltdown during the year because of all that I'm doing, hehe :albertein.

    I think the worst part is that I'm the last person anyone would think could do it. My time management skills are not to be desired. My college still seem to think that I'll manage all the work I need to do :confused: I just hope they are right. But yeah if I manage it I should get some kind of medal. I think the iceing on the cake would be if I had to do the dance exams at the same kind of time as my A-Level ones. I can just imagine my face if my dance teacher tells me that :eek: :vroam: .

    I got a place at Altricham Grammar but turned it down, I also turned down Manchester Grammar, William Hulme, Stockport Grammar and Sedbergh (Thas's another boarding school). How do you know about altrincham grammar? Do you go to school nearby?

    Back on topic, I took five A levels, plus General Studies (in which I got a U! So proud of that!), and had a better social life, as well as plenty of active interests outside school, than many of my friends taking three or four.

    That's good to hear, because I'm about to embark on 6 AS Levels, one of them being bloody GS though, and am worried that my life (which is very important to me! :p: ) will disintegrate soon.
