    Hi

    This is a really dumb q but i wanted to have a guideline as to how much I can see my friends this year. I want to go out on Friday to the cinema and then work when I get back home possibly and then meeting friends on Saturday during the day?? Is twice too much? Part of me feels like I should just go to both, because it's only October but I am not sure. Thanks for any advice

    trust my friends were like that they are never going to go out now that we are in yr 13 but they go out all the time. i guess you can but limit yourself. like im never ever going out(only to school and that's it) cause i got my a levels but if you know you can handle the work load then go ahead but if you are like me and going out disrupts your study then i think you should extremely limit yourself.

    The question isn't how much you can socialise, but how much you can study.

    If you create a weekly calendar where you allocate hours to go revise your subjects (using the official exam specs so you know exactly what you need to have revised by the time exams come up), you'll find you have plenty of free time.

    The key to success with studying is having focused sessions that involve lots of concentration and thinking. Essentially, quality over quantity.

    You'll find that actually, if you plan your week and use your study hours effectively (i.e. working alone in a quite room, no distractions, etc.), you will have a huge amount of free time. So no, twice a week is definitely not much. In fact, going out five times a week wouldn't be too much as long as you've planned your study hours in advance.

    OK thanks guys v much. I know the question was a bit weird but I never used to go out before. I did not make a study plan per se last year but I used my spec and revision notes to see what I did and did not understand. Should I make a timetable now? Or nearer the time?

    to be honest, you can probably do as much socialising as you want. I did next to no work in year 13 and came out with BBB - not ideal but I didn't deserve much more and I had a great time anyway. Keep a bit of time to make sure you don't fall behind and you can probably come out with what you want, just work hard at the end
