    I'm only at GCSE but I would guess do past papers and give yourself 2 days per week with no extra studying?

    University of Liverpool and studying business management. Teaching hours is also low, only about 7-8 hours in classes per week.

    aaaah, what an innocent child you are, there isnt enough time to not do anything for a full two days.

    I would recommend taking regular beaks and giving yourself reasonable amounts of work for each study session. Also find what motivates you (eg, going to X university, or a great summer holiday) and keep remembering that what you are doing atm will help you reach that goal

    So next year when I'm in college (doing maths, further maths and physics) i'll need to study outside of college for 6 or 7 days per week. Will it be a good idea for me to start studying for A-level before I start college (so as soon as my GCSEs finish I start)?

    Thanks remember to work hard, I got average gcse's so couldn't get into the uni I wanted. Also, maybe you should look at going to the gym, high intensity training or doing some sport you like. Yeah, your a levels are the most important thing right now, but training REALLY helps keep you sane, relaxed and happy. So if you're struggling to cope, I'd recommend it.

    Thank you! I swim and I find that very helpful for destressing, but increasingly it is difficult to find time to do it. Bearing what you said in mind, I will try to make it work though!
