I feel like there is a misconception that smart people work all the time and that's how they get the grades. This is very far from the truth and the last thing I would recommend anyone to do.
Balance is essential to successfully succeed at alevels. What's the point having finished alevels being severely depressed, unmotivated and at your all time low but have good grades?
Your mood and mental health is as important and if not more important than your grades and it's essential you look after it. Having a social life is what can help improve your mood, go out with your friends, meet new people, join clubs. Do something in your life other than working. You will find that you are more motivated to work and will enjoy life more. The memories you make with people is what they will remember, not the grades you got at A-levels. By no means am I saying these exams aren't important but I want you to see it from a bigger picture.
This is were been effective and smart in revision will allow you to get top grades without finding yourself working at all times. Being pro-active in your education will help and scheduling your life, eg if you want to go out on Friday you might decided to do extra work on Thursday. Little stuff like that will help you stay on top of both your social and academic life.
Don't forget to reach out to people if you feel like Schoo life is getting too much for you, talking out your problems is always a good thing. I am always here if you would like a chat.
