    Hi,
    I am thinking about doing DofE Gold award however I am worried that it may take up time which could otherwise be used for revision to help me do well in my A levels. Is there anyone with previous experience of doing DofE Gold that could answer my question?

    Some elements of it will inevitably take some time. Others won't.

    Time management is a valuable skill.

    In which case you're asking an impossible question.

    You might be able to manage your time effectively, plan things, know what you're getting yourself into and commit yourself well. In which case, no, it won't.

    You might not be able to do any of that, in which case yes, it will.

    But nobody here knows you so nobody here could even begin to answer that question.
