    So I did 5 a levels and got all As and I did no studying only until april and all year I would go out and party everyday. However this year its A2 and I want to get A* this year my friends and parents think I should do 3 instead im really convinced that this year I can stay home and work hard as I can to get 90% there execuse is mostly that I have a social life and wouldnt be able to stay home all day studying. And I wont argue about it I go out a lot but if I know how much is the minimum amount of hours a week or a day people who get A* usually do and when did you start hardcore studying? The subjects I am doing are Chem BIo Phy and Math

    tbh you can get away with limited studying and just brushing up your skills a couple of months before the exams but is ill-advised by me as stuff can come up e.g. death in family, moving houses, etc.... You want to be in the position that if you sat the exam now you would get an A* asap allowing you to refine your technique more and also not stress. TBH idk why I'm sharing advice because the best advice is advice you make for yourself. Actually sit down and think about it carefully, Also 4 hours per week per subject each week should be more than enough slightly more if academically challenged but the exams of current academia are jokes compared to other countries in term of difficulty etc... Just remember that if you think you would get an A* if you did the exam now you have completed your studying unless of course you're going for 100% UMS not worth the time though in my experience. However misjudging the current level you are working at could be detrimental therefore I would recommend working beyond when you feel you would get an A* if you sat the exam now.
