    lol, i didnt turn up to half my economics module 2 lessons, didnt do any independent work, didnt do homework either, didnt do any past papers, got predicted a C by my teacher, spent under 24hours revising and still ended up with 87/90.

    i also did computing(aqa) and i am one of the worst in the class. the whole class retook module 1 and most ppl ended up with BBE but somehow i got BAA (86/90) on mod 3 and i didnt even spend much time revising.

    but the one i did revise for (chemistry) i got AAA but didnt get as many UMS points as i wanted. ill never make the mistake of revising for a test again.

    I would always recommend doing the smallest amount of work you can get away with outside of lessons (with skill and plenty of practise you can get this down to as little as 10 minutes per week).
    I have friends who literally never left their houses because they did so much work- it's not healthy!

    DISCLAIMER: This recommendation does not apply to the period of 3 days running up to any exam, when a sensible candidate spends their time scrawling illegible notes from textbooks and sporadically sobbing into their ribena, wishing they had worked more for their A levels...

    1) For most of the year I did nothing - I didn't even do my homework most of the time (they can't make me - I'm A-level ); then at the end, for about one/half weeks during my exams, I did about 3-4 hours revision per day, most days.
    2) No. None. Though I know a friend who I guess probably has. But she started AS revision at Xmas.

    In all honesty, I only do around 1/2 hour a day. Sometimes when im making notes, i take a little longer.

    Working in the summer? HELL NO.

    I'd advise nobody to, as by the time it comes to the all important A2

    I'd advise nobody to, as by the time it comes to the all important A2 year, you will be exhausted and won't really have a nack of working again. I'd say make the most of your summer, and take driving lessons/search unis/do your draft of personal statement.

    1)I did A LOT of work when i did my A levels especially for Maths I literally did 4 papers a day in the last weeks before the exams as they were avaliable.
    The main reason whoever why i did this was because i couldnt find anything more interesting to do @ my school.

    2) I never did ANY work when i was at home during holidays as we usually weren't set any and / or ive done everything set during term time.

    Also as much as i did for Maths i virtually did nothing for ICT (apart from the insame amount of coursework) as it comes to me naturally and i even tought myself module 5 on my own and sat it in january.

    I can just recommend working hard for subjects which are harder / require more practice (maths comes to mind) and do less on subjects which are basically common sense such as ICT or business studies.
