    I've just recently started A Level's and I was fully expecting a load of homework and studying and stuff. I have found that actually there is LOADS of stuff which isn't surprising but it is getting me down. I mean, will A Level's carry on like this?? I have another two years of this??!!
    I love the subs I'm doing, R.S, History, English Lit and Psych but there is soooooo much h/w! Support and advice much appreciated. Thankyou. :eek:

    you'll be getting far more at uni

    and i imagine it may slow down a bit, teachers tend to go overboard in the first few weeks then ease off

    Ye, you d get quite a lot, by the end of year 12, I was suicidal, but luckily passed with fairly good grades. I dont think A2 is as bad as people make out because I think the work at AS prepares you for A2 so it doesnt come as big as a shock

    Finally someone that shares my pain! I started my first year of A-levels 2 weeks ago and I'm already drowning in homework! Teachers go way over the top with the homework they give...
    I'm doing maths, chemistry, english lit and history.. There is just so much work involved, never mind the added homework and extra research work!
    Don't worry, your not alone.

    Dont worry i felt the same at the start of AS BUT you get used to it. It will take time maybe more than one or two months. It wont ease off but with experience you manage to cope with it. I can feel the effects for A2 now. The homework is much harder than AS but as im now better at managing my time, its tolerable. This is coming from someone who is doing an essay subject (eng lit) and chem, bio, and physics. Oh and C2 for maths (this is difficult to find time for as im not being taught it but not because i actually dont have the time)

    Good luck x

    A2 gets worse. I have a piece of homework from each subject each day, and its usually in for the next day.

    You better get used to sharpening pencils and underlining your work boyyyy

    I know what you mean. It was pretty shocking getting my first piece of homework after 2 years of none.

    It gets worse for A2, not to worry you :P: I didn't find AS to be a shock regarding homework, but now I have no spare time for myself.
