you're not going to just get 3As from just "studying". It depends on studying effectively. That varies from individual.

It's hard to put a number on but like the above poster said it's how you do it as much as how long you do it for.
Just reading notes for 6 hours a day is not going to be anywhere near as helpful as doing a few past papers and some flash cards.
In my AS Levels (I did 4 - biology, chemistry, psychology and religious studies and got 4 A grades) I believe at the start of the year I made a mindmap or two a day on a topic from any of my courses and would try to make a set of flash cards per day. Closer to the end of the year I was doing two sets of flash cards per day and aimed to do a past paper per day or grab a bunch of questions from a certain topic I struggled with and did them. I always had a break on Friday however where I did little to no revision after college.
You have to find what works for you but that's how I did it. Good luck and hope I helped.

My school recommends 6 hours per subject per week but there's no point doing that if you just read through your notes

One hour at home for every hour you do in college is the minimum. But you must get the most out of the studying and not just read notes
