    My A Levels start on May 17th. Since the end of my Christmas holidays, I've normally done an hour and a half (two subjects, 45 minutes each) of revision 3-4 nights per week. When should I change this to 7 days? And should I increase the amount of time. At the moment I'm also working on coursework (I do Drama which is 60% written coursework and English which is like 50% coursework)

    It's never too early to start, but don't overwork yourself. Use past papers to gauge your progress, and go from there. What you've been doing until now is probably more than most people . At current I'd focus on coursework, since doing well in that will reduce the pressure on you to get a specific grade in the exams, plus when the coursework is over with you'll have more time for your other subjects. Most people at my school started revising properly (as in, pure revision every day, not just homework) a couple of weeks after Easter.
