How many hours a week do you put in? I start mine on the 1st and I'm worrying!

It depends which course, and how much you already know about the subject, whether you want a first or just a pass etc.
Rule of thumb, each 30 points of study takes 5-10 hours a week, more just before a TMA deadline, less just aftergrin

A200 history. Have some knowledge. Trying to put in 2 hours a night and a bit more on weekends

That should be fine, it's mostly about organisation really. I certainly spent half my studying time looking for notes I wrote on the back of other stuff wink

I went to an information day and the woman I spoke to said it's about 8 hours a week on average for every 30 credit course.

Ooh I should be ok then. Some nights I do loads but others I attempt the housework!!
