Hey guys,
im 14 yo and I’ve been cubing since late july (so now its been 5 months) and I’m averaging around 14,55 seconds, I know full PLL, advanced f2l, and I have 7 OLL’s left to learn, I practice a least 2 hours on the day that I have school (3-4-5 or more per day in holidays) and I’m constently looking to improve, watching video about cubing when I’m not at school, spending time with my family/friends or eating.
Now I would like to have some advices and tips from you guys because I know that there are a lot of very good cubers here.
If y’all could give me some tips to practice effectively and improve it would be very cool !
Thank you in advance !
That’s insane improvement man. I’ve been cubing for 1 3/4 years and I’ve inly just gotten to sub 16. Nice work.

I practice a lot at home and do tons of solves. What do you think the general time area would be, thanks guy that I saw like 5 minutes ago.

Erm... you're welcome? (You've only been on the forums for 5 minutes)
It entirely depends on your F2L speed. That can vary between 5 seconds and 15 seconds for people who know full PLL.
Typical speed for someone who has just learnt PLL is around 16-20 seconds and since you practise a lot it will likely end up being the lower range.

It all depends on how you drill and cope up with recognition. All I can say is doing more solves helps to deal with the cases more fluidly, M' U' R S' R' U M E.

Happy cubing and good luck learning the next algset/method/puzzle!

After a little less than 11 months of cubing, I want to ask if I am progressing fast enough or if I need to improve faster

I average about 31 seconds,

In a solve of 26.83 seconds (which I call a good solve), here are my time splits:

Cross: 3.41 s
F2L: 13.57
OLL: 3.32
PLL: 6.52

Can someone tell if I am improving fast enough and which are the steps I need to work on? I would really appreciate it.

how much do you practice? If you want to improve faster you have to practice more. In 11 months cubing I was already sub20 but in the last 4 months or so I was doing 100 solves almost every day

It seems that you weakest links are pll and f2l, maybe focus on that.
