    Wow! I'm always procrastinating. Can u give me some tips?
    Classical music helps, but also finding some alone time and shutting the door and then revising one subject per day helps.

    I got A*A*A in chem, maths answers bio respectively. Initially, yes I did count school time but i didn't count it as 6 hours. I counted it as about 3 hours of genuine studying. But we finished the course and had more free periods at school and then eventually went on study leave so yeh towards the end I was doing about 10 hours a day at home.

    I did push myself too hard though. I'm not saying you have to do the same as me to get the grades you want. Many revise much less and get the same or better grades. But I felt like I wanted to know everything like the back of my hand specially after my as exams didn't go like I wanted them to.

    Although I won't reccomend doing 10hrs a day (even though it worked for me), I do reccomend two things, specially for the science subjects:
    1) know the spec really really well
    2) do all of the exam papers for your subject from your exam board. And spend a decent amount of time thoroughly marking it as if it's not your own work. Be harsh in marking and learn from mistakes. You begin to see recurring patterns in the answers they're looking for. It makes the exam so much easier no matter what question they throw at you.

    Thanks! It's just that I get panicked and stressed which then results in me getting nothing done 😔

    I did one hour a night at most for A-levels, although most days no studying outside of school. I used my time during school to study instead- had so many frees. Got A*A*A in the end.

    Don't panic, I'd say find some enthusiasm to revise and get pumped as I find this helps me immensely

    I study Media (hate it so much lol but it's coursework based) English Literature and English Language and I am picking up Science based subjects this year after A2 and I plan to do Biomedical Science after a year of changing my mind
    If you're going to change subjects whats the point in doing A2s now? Isnt it better if you just drop and start sciences now?

    No point now, come so far and I'm nearly at the end, plus it's nice to have some extra qualification to back me up.

    True, however if things don't work out I would probably do Psychology or something, Politics even?

    I am indecisive yes, however it's best to have a lot of subjects as options incase they fall through

    Probably 3/4 hours after college (more like 6 on a Wednesday though as I finish much earlier) and if I have frees that I'm in college for I work then and at lunch too (I come home whenever I can) so that's probably an extra 8 hours a week. I work Saturdays but I tend to do a lot of my History reading on the bus, maybe about an hour in total, and then on a Sunday probably 4/5 hours (I go to Church and help at Sunday school). Writing that out, I've realised not enough is the answer!

    I guess everyone's different, I would not want to do more than 2 years of a level, just want to get to uni ASAP!

    wow well done, i momentarily forgot about study leave and thought you did 10 hours after school. What course do you plan on studying after gap year, as you pretty much have your pick
    Imagine doing 10 hours after school!! Oh my god. I wouldn't be alive if I did that. I didn't get into medicine last year so I'm trying again this year. Currently have a mpharm offer from kcl but waiting on responses post interview for medicine. Fingers crossed I'll get in this time
