    Hey chaps well yeah. I need 4 A grades at as level and am prapared to do alot of revision for it but i have alot of other things which i am afraid will mess up my chances.

    I have a sixth form rugby match on saturday mornings.

    Club rugby match on sunday's.

    Club rugby training on thursdays.

    Volentary work on sundays.

    I also need an hour every night too


    I am fuly commited to this but feel all of the above commitments will not give me enough time to revise. Please tell me if i can still do it. thankz

    You are revising so far in advance that you have the luxury of being able to keep all of those things and revise around them, you surely can't have been taught enough already to take up masses of time.

    Relax OP you're starting so far in advance that you only need a couple hours a day at most. Also when I was doing my A-levels my school looked into whether a large amount of extra-curriculars affected a students results and they actually saw that people with a large amount of commitments did better because they had to manage their time better.

    Your doing it way before you need to, thus not doing it as 'hardcore' as you'd like won't matter.

    You can manage all that and still get enough revision done.

    In my humble opinion there are two things you need to do

    1) you have listed all your other committments, don't add to them. i.e. you wouldn't have as much free time to watch tv etc like other people, since you are using all your free time to play rugby etc

    2) When you are studying - you need to be super concentrated and super disciplined.

    Best of luck with it though!:woo:

    Dude, throughout year 12 I did A LOT OF STUFF, from organising events to messing about in central London and I still managed to get all As. It is quite possible if you organise your time wisely. My advice is to be ahead in all your subjects, don't wait for the teacher to teach you, i taught myself and lessons were just revision for me.

    Instead of revising you should be learning. Revision is when you go over stuff, I doubt you've even done 1/4 of the syllabus at school yet. Secondly, there's roughly 7 hours from the time you come home from school; you have plenty of time to work/learn/do questions and still fit in a busy lifestyle.

    You're overcomplicating your work-life already. Just calm down and things one step at a time. If you think too far ahead then you'll end up doing none of it.
