I'm going to do Chemistry, Biology, Maths and RS and I was wondering how many hours a day I should be prepared to do??

And how many exams are they for each subject every year?

At my college, they say that you should aim to do 4 hours independent study per subject per week.

For my As Levels, Biology and Chemistry each had two written exams and a practical exam, Maths had 3 written exams. I'm not sure about RS, but i think it is two written exams.

Well for biology in AS you have 2 exams and it is the same for chemistry!! The only difference between chemistry and biology is that u do a lot of ISA's in chemistry and in biology u only do two (thats assuming that for biology ur doing AQA and for chemistry ur doing edexcel because it could be different per  exam board!!) !!

also just my opinion but i believe biology isvery easy even the exams i did this year were easy!!

Just talk to your teacher and ask them what exam board you are on for those subjects and then look at the syllabus online !! Then it is all about revising , i did roughly a 1h-2h's during summer holidays everyday b4 AS level ... im not saying you have to do that but have a look at wot u have to learn as if u start early everything seems easier in the end ;D ***

CGP sell some "bridging the gap" books that are quite useful - the maths one's quite good, my school uses it. It's got lots of exercises in it. - the most important thing for maths is your algebra. I think they do other subjects too. :)

Each subject has two modules per year, apart from maths which has three. So if you should have at least nine exams in Year 12. to get your ***.

Be prepared to work VERY hard it  will be a shock to the system but you will enjoy it as you are taking subjects that you love and enjoy do about an hour per day for each subject

These probably 2 exams for each subject but it depends on the subject and exam board

5 hours a day is a bit insane if you've got school on the same day. I'd go for about 2 hours per day.
