    If BTEC students don't do exams, and write assignments all year, what do A level students do when they're not revising for exams?

    Do they have homework? Assignments? I didn't do BTEC or A levels so I'm confused as to what A level students do if their most important exams are over a period of weeks at the final year of College, 2 years after starting

    You revise over the year for exams at the end of the year. Some subjects like English literature and history have coursework, which is done at home.

    If the 'revision season' hasn't started yet, you basically get a lot of theory in class and expected to complete exercises at home

    Don't forget some A-levels (most) have at least 1 element of coursework anyways and that can take up a lot of time

    For people that do A-Levels over two years, the AS-Level is done in the first year and then the second year exams the year after to get the full A-Level, so there is actually plenty to be getting on with.

    Learn stuff. The clue's in the word "revision": you have to already have learned it.
