    Guys.. hey I am in year 11 and I love doing many extra-curricular activities but I feel I put too much on and it will not able me to do well in gsces but I do not want to get rid of any of them because they will help me for the profession I want to go to or they are really fun. I am very academic too so this is a tough decision. I do not mind if it is harsh but can someone just give me some advice, it would be greatly appreciated

    If you feel like you can balance both your school work and your extra curricular activities
    Then its fine

    Its honestly about how good you are at time management. If you stick to a routine religiously and effectively manage your time (e.g short and effective revision methods) there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to balance the two.
    However how well you can manage your time is only up to you- so if you think extra curriculars stop you from giving sufficient time for GCSE's, then its probably time to prioritise and cut things down.

    Time management is key. If you think you can find a balance, then you should be fine.

    You need to know the balance
    Natwest balance
    Barclay’s balance
    Bank account balance
    Everywhere you go, the balance
    Even your girlfriend’s balance
    (Go to 1.24)


    No but seriously its about balancing academic learning with your extra-curricular stuff - the correct balance will get you there

    Thanks everyone for the advice. I will really take the advice on board and I will get rid of one of the activities but will keep the rest and keep a good balance!
