For my AS' next year I'm taking Spanish, French, Economics and History, and then possibly Latin as an extra, and then also AS Critical Thinking which I'll probably do in year 13 due to timetabling. I was just wondering if people doing any of those subjects could tell me what sort of workload they involve, and whether it would be too much? (I would get around 1.5 hours worth of study periods per week in school as well). Particuarly Latin I'm wondering about as it would be an extra.
Too much work? watch

Personally I would say four AS-levels is enough. When it comes to exam time you'll be really stressed out if you're not the best at organisation and your grades might suffer.
Of the subjects you listed I only study History which I revise for by reading unit guides and watching documentaries really. It helps when you can put a face to a name.
Having said that though if you have plenty of time on your hands at home and you're brilliant at organising your time effectively you can still do well with Latin as a fifth AS-level. Languages at A-level are very difficult I've heard though unless you have natural talent.
