    Refer to question, if you did, how did you balance it?

    Yes, although I was only doing two a levels at the time. I’m guessing you mean 3+ A levels as well as two GCSEs?

    Just 3 a levels. I was just wondering as I'm looking to do some alongside my A levels but somehow balance it and get decent grades, I don't have much of a social life so I want something to do

    Interesting, I would expect that's quite common to do a singular one

    I’m doing 3 A-Levels (French, Bio and Chem.), AS Maths, 2 IGCSE’s English language and Economics. But I’m an adult learner plus working full time!

    I study at least 2 subjects for least 2 units daily not to cram or overwork myself. Better to learn in chunks and gradually than everything at one go. Because you’ll not only stress yourself, your grades won’t be good too. Learning is a process. I enjoy and love studying, but sometimes other commitments get in the way too. I balance it all out by being active, do sports etc.

    I revise or recap everything I had learnt once a week in a 30min sessions - if you’re really concentrated you don’t need to sit an hour or more. Just be focused. If I see some gap that needs to be filled in or corrected I’ll just make a quick note and do so immediately. My learning style is rather relaxed but organized, through and very focused.

    You sound extremely devoted - I’d like to think I could do that, but truthfully I don’t think I could. I think I may take some tips from that, especially if I do find a way to study at home while doing my a levels. I appreciate the reply and I do hope you achieve what you want, seeing you’re this devoted I can tell you will.
