I'm doing 3 subjects for Cambridge A levels. I am taking January intake (Nxt year) for College A levels. I'm taking English Lit, Maths and Economics. My tuition teacher has covered AS Econs in a week and almost finished covering A levels Econs, and I'm expecting myself to solve all AS&A econs paper by nxt month, which is the first month of my A level lessons. I have pushed myself to solve P1&P2 papers for Mathematics even though I have not even started the course. I get nervous even though my first A level classes HAVE NOT EVEN STARTED. Am I pushing myself too much? I am also quite anxious about Eng Lit as I heard it would be a lot of reading but I have not even started pre-reading the texts. *I am taking AP Economics for May nxt year before AS levels

Sorry, you covered the entirety of AS economics in a week?

You’re really pushing yourself. It’s not as beneficial as people believe to just read through or attempt to learn the content before it’s taught. You’d be much better off spending that time revising the work after you’ve been taught the stuff.

Literature isn’t that much reading. Of course you’ve got to read the texts, and your teacher may ask that of you more than once - But it’s much more discussion and analysis and flipping through the texts for useful quotes etc.
