Im planning to do A Level Maths, Economics, Law & AS Further Maths.
This totals 17 papers spanning 16 May - 27 June
A Level Maths = 6 papers
A Level Law = 4 papers
A Level Econ = 4 Papers
AS Further Maths = 3 Papers

They will all be completed in the summer season of 2016

How should I go about planning to study for it?
Break it down into a few AS subjects per day? 5 Papers each per day?

Would value your help!

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

6 papers for standard maths? Not 3? Not just C1, C2 and S1/M1?

I think that I had 14 from the 22nd of May to 24th of June, though they were mostly Maths modules, so I'll tell you how I approached it.

I did all of the knowledge and textbook questions well before the exam so there wouldn't be any last minute cramming.

I'm not one for rigid timetables, so I just made a simple one in terms of months what modules I should have finished and when by. This was easy to pick for me as I aimed to finish 2 A2 Maths modules, 3 AS FM modules and 1 Physics/Chemistry module each, so what I was going for was at least half of the modules for each A-level. As you have 17 it's not an even number, but I'd suggest aiming to finish learning 1 or 2 of the FM modules and all of the modules for your other AS subjects. Then do the odd past paper here and there and aim to finish what you have left by April/March. Also look for any significant gaps in your timetable to leave past papers till.

Did you do the maths modules at home by yourself? I'm doing A2 maths this year and i'm thinking about trying to finish maybe c3 and c4 early by myself so that in school, i can focus on my other subjects more

I found that I didn't need examsolutions as most of the explanations in the textbooks were straightforward, but that's not to say that I wouldn't recommend them if you get stuck. I pretty much stuck to the textbook.

And yes, I did the A-level in one year.
