    so teachers and other usual suspects say "4 hours of independent study a week is recommended to do well on this course". What counts as independent study? Just reading books? Or do you study information packs and guides about the text you're studying? Can anyone give me some examples?? I'm doing Edexcel btw. thanks!!

    It just means studying in your own time - what you study in your own time is your own prerogative. So whether that's reading literary criticism, doing your own chapter summaries, character analysis, practice essays, reading further on, etc etc.
