    Hi,

    I have just started AS at sixth form and ready to take on my A-Levels for the next two years which are: Maths, Economics and History.

    However one thing which is bothering me is that I don't know how many hours I should be putting into each subject outside of school for studying. I ask teachers at school but they all give different responses which is quite confusing, as you can imagine. Hence I am asking TSR, as to how many study hours shall I put into each of my 3 A-Levels per week to achieve 2A Stars and an A?

    At GCSE I was a straight A student. Getting 4 A* and A's the rest of my GCSE's. I wouldn't do much revision then (2 hours a night when it came to exam time) but right now A-Levels are seeming pretty hard straight off the bat (mainly maths).

    So please recommend me an amount of hours to spend studying outside of school to get my grades for A-Level. Thanks!

    Unfortunately, there isn't an easy answer to this question. It's not a matter of "Put in X hours and you will get an A*" because people learn at different rates and in different ways. You need to put in as much work as is required to get you to where you want to be (and you can gauge that to some extent with past papers and classwork).
