One of my teachers has recommended doing my a levels over 3 years (I've just finished year 11) because of my mental health and meaning that my stress levels would be lower. I'm slightly confused as to how it works though- how are they spread out over 3 years?

I'd imagine that your teacher probably has an idea about how it would work. As there isn't really a formal structure for it, I think you probably need to talk to this teacher about what they had in mind.
Otherwise you could always just start off with the 3 rather than the typical 4, which would help reduce the workload if you were to do it over 2 years

I would probably imagine that they would take the modules and space them out across the 3 years and then have both the AS and A2 exams at the end of your 3rd year.
For example if you would have 6 modules in a subject, instead of having to learn 3 modules in 1 year, you would learn 2 modules per year.
However it depends on the subject because there has been somewhat of a curriculum change to some subjects, so some will have all exams at the end of A2, and some will have it the old fashioned way with some exams at the end of AS and the rest at the end of A2.
