    I used to go to a grammar school and from what I hear from my friends at that school, they get way more homework than I do. I moved schools because I wanted a fresh start and for more reasons that I'm not going to say, but to be honest I wish I'd stayed at my old school. So I'm wondering how much homework you all get in year 12? I literally only get about 3 hours of homework per week, which doesn't seem like enough. I don't know if it's because there are a lot of people in my school who aren't very intelligent, I'm not being rude. I do French, Italian and RE, and I don't feel like I'm getting anywhere near enough homework, but I don't want to mention it to my school because they're going to think I'm weird asking for extra homework.

    Also, how much revision should I be doing per day? I have a lot of free periods so obviously I work throughout all of them, but I'm wondering how much I should be doing at home and on weekends. I've done barely any work this half term, but it's ok because I've got two weeks off so I'm going to do loads next week

    I go to a grammar school and we get too much. In year 12, I had around 3 hours of work a day, which would consist of homework and private study (not allowed to call them 'frees') within the school day.
