    I'm being quite productive myself, doing 6 hours roughly per day (where I just review the content already covered, learn ahead of my class, and practice applying maths knowledge to questions). I'm doing maths, further maths, physics and chemistry.

    Disclaimer: If you're not doing any, you're fine. I just like to learn ahead of my classes.

    What do you want to do after sixth form.
    Get a degree in Natural sciences or physics/chemistry and specialize on a theoretical level. Cambridge would be my ultimate goal, but I would be very contempt at another top RG uni. After that I would like to either go into the nuclear energy sector or possibly focus on research around astrophysics. I've not completely decided yet and this goal of mine will likely change over time.

    I take it you want to go into the health sector?

    I feel like I've been doing far too much, at least 6 hours a day. I'm just doing exam questions on the topics we've covered so far, and going over flashcards.

    You seem very ambitious and determined to do well, good luck, how are you finding maths, personally statistics is easier than pure as pure is predominantly focussed on application questions whereas statistics is more if you know the knowlege it's easier to apply, please tell me someones on the same boat as me

    I'm finding maths fairly easy although the rate at which my school is teaching it is pretty quick as I'm doing maths A2 in year 12. I've nearly covered the whole of AS now (except the second half of statistics and natural logarithms) and I haven't really had much trouble with it tbh. That said though I don't know what the more difficult side of statistics is like.

    I've lost track of how many hours I'm doing but I'm struggling to get through this ridiculous homework workload - it's probably 2 weeks worth of homework tbh and it's so monotonous, especially Sociology .

    10 hours p/day! just like GCSE, i've got tests coming up too! I know it sounds awry but it's just 7 until 5, so it's all good, also gives me a chance to get ahead.
    that’s so much!!! i’ve done about 3 hours a day and still feel overwhelmed!

    Depends what I am doing that day. If I have plans, then I do less, if I don't then I do more I'm mainly focusing on homework and consolidating my knowledge from last half term
