    Hi, I plan study engineering in the future (between mechanical, aeronautics or computing) I'm taking Physics, Maths (Mechanics) and Computer Studies as my subjects. Question is, how much amout of work should I plan putting if I want to achieve 3A or 1A*2A ? Maths being the A*.

    I still have 2 years (approximately) of time so I want to know asap

    There isn't a set amount of time to study - it depends on your workload, how fast you normally work and how well you can grasp the subject. Generally speaking, try to devote a few hours each week for each subject equally. You can use the time to complete assignments or just general revision of what you have learnt. You could make a timetable to help you stick to this. As you start your A-levels, you can get an idea if you need more/less time for your subjects, so you can adjust your timetable accordingly.
