    I will be taking Music, Drama and ICT (and might be repeating English again) in September. I like to plan things beforehand and was wondering what would be the average amount of time that I should spend on each subject. Especially since my chosen subjects are really coursework and practical based. I will change anything that I have difficulty I just need a basic idea at the moment.

    I spent a year doing a B Tech and because I was only doing one subject (that and I repeated English) I used all my study periods to do my homework (B Tech ICT is all coursework). So I will have to get back into a habit to doing homework.

    Honestly, for me there is no 'x hours will get you y result' or 'you must work for x minutes between y and z'. My timetable is very rough - I have hours that I work between and take breaks, but spend more or less time each day depending on how much work needs to be done. Plus as well, the work you do in 1 hour could be different to someone else's 1 hour - someone could do more, someone else could do less. I would suggest trying to do some work and seeing what your needs are before making a timetable that may or may not work.

    Aren't you rehearsing a lot for your Music and Drama practicals? In particular I can't see how Drama can be rehearsed by oneself
