How much work per night? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am very confused in terms of how much work we're meant to do nightly in year 12. I've just started, therefore this I am clueless in terms of whether to just complete the homework and relax thereafter, or stick to a ratio of time in a lesson to time spent at home, completing not only my homework, but also maybe going beyond what has been taught.

    E.g. For every hour of maths at school during the day, I go home and do two hours of maths homework as well as other maths related studies.

    Please help!

    You really don't need to do that much, but if you're happy with it then go ahead because it will help you

    We're told to do no more than 8 hours a week. They suggest 4.

    It should essentially be the only thing you do when you get back from school
