    I'm thinking of doing 3hrs a day after school and 30 minutes in the morning.
    Is this too much?

    Depends, some people prefer doing tiny blocks of 30 minutes with 5 minutes gap in between. Others prefer huge blocks of 2-3 hours so it's totally personal pretence. Personally I like doing huge chunks at once and I like doing that so it's totally personal preference tbh

    joke joke x'D
    well I mean the 'average' is 5 hours per subject per week outside of school
    so if you do 4 A levels it's almost 3 hours everyday (spread evenly)
    That's average! And it hasn't burned anyone else out so another 30 mins wont kill you

    Good luck

    Not if you can organize your tasks and be very precise about what you're learning, otherwise you will burn out. Just make sure you get at least 7 hours of sleep per night.

    it depends on you really, maybe try it for a week and see how you cope? try to find the best way to break it down too, so for example some people like doing 30 min bursts and others like long two hour chunks
    idk about the 30 mins in the morning that would stress me out, but i guess it might motivate some people

    It sounds fine, but with the 3 hours after school, take a 20 minute break after each hour. Make sure you're starting as soon as you get home from school so that you can still go to sleep at a reasonable time and get 8/9 hours of sleep.
    Good luck!!

    Depends when you wake up. If you want to wake up at 7 then you should be falling asleep by 11:30 PM, If you go to bed at 10, you should wake up at 5:30. Check out this website, it'll calculate your optimal sleep/wake times based on human sleep cycles.
