Have you encountered anyone who has done a double degree with a honours and some normal degree Like e.g Hon. in Physics/Computer Science (Normal) or is that a really rare minority.Double degree is different to what honours is. A double degree is where you do two degrees from different areas. Honours is an extra year on a degree where you do some project and produce a thesis. These projects vary depending on the type of subject area you are doing, in sciences like bio, chem, physics, it would be an individual research project and in some other degrees they you might have a pair working on something.
The amount of commitment and time needed will vary based on each degree. For me personally it's been quite demanding because for a chemistry honours you need to go to the lab mon-fri, so you are at uni every weekday, so in my case basically all the time is dedicated to uni itself. For other honours programs where you don't have to be at uni and can do the work in your own time then I guess it would be a little less demanding in terms of the schedule.
