    (Original post by BATMAN168)
    To get A's in A levels requires a lot of work no doubt. Im currently revising 2 - 4 hours everyday and soon more nearer exams.

    My main priorities are studying and gym atm.

    What have you but to the back seat guys
    Usually I study during midday/evening, but I have breaks in between. Sometimes I revise for only 5 hours and consecutively by days, I give myself a break and hang out with friends for the whole day and when returning or before going out, if I feel like it, i'll revise for like half an hour - an hour to go through my notes and stuff just to make sure I didn't forget anything. I have sacrificed a lot for revision as I've been usually in my room and going out less. I have also done less sport and music lessons because it's getting in the way too much.

    jk lol, just my sanity

    I just cut out all the pointless time e.g. TV/internet etc. I still worked, saw friends, exercised, volunteered and revised.

    Haven't skated in 2 weeks, haven't played volleyball in 3 weeks and the only time I've been to the gym recently, I was writing essays while using the exercise bike. Haven't watched any anime in almost a week, which is a big deal for someone who usually watches 20+ ongoing shows per season.
