A-levels outside college: Number of hours weekly per A-level to get an A* Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Due to my college being unable to offer me AS Mathematics and AS Further Mathematics, due to there being no spaces on either course, I am going to be taking them at a private college next year, and study for it all at home, alongside my college AS level course.

    I've allocated 11 hours a week for Maths, and 10 hours a week for FM on my timetable, i've got a lot of free periods to use up, and the Head of Maths at my college will help me with anything I'm struggling with for a few hours each week, included in the timetable.

    Is this a valid amount of time to get an A* at the end of the two year course? I'm not brilliant at maths, but I enjoy it and really want to improve my ability with it.I'm doing OCR MEI for both courses, and i'm doing the three sciences for my other as levels.

    Also, does anyone know where I can find any lesson plans for either subject to plan the year around? Thanks.
