    If it's anything like Maths / Chemistry / Physics (i.e. you use the knowledge from previous modules in later parts of the course) then yes.

    i have got psychology unit 1, business unit 2, i.t unit 2 and a2 exam :/
    im so stressed, do u genuinely think it is actually possible?? I keep revising thinking in my head is this worth if i get the same or not as good grade again. I need ideally a mid B in the paper at-least to gain an A overall. The exam is on 12th Jan, im thinking of even revising stuff on x mas day lol whats ur plan waht should i do?

    There are lots of ifs and buts on this one.

    What subject?
    How many papers?
    What did you get last time?
    How much work had you done?
    Why do you think you didn't pass last time?
    How much work have you got to do ie do you need to read through the work to understand it or just to recall it?
    Is is just a case of doing past papers?

    Do you think you have got enough time?
    Will you turn off the modem and spend all day working or will you spend 10 minutes studying for every half hour on TSR and Facebook?
    How often will you decide to clean out your room in the next 3 weeks (just to pass the time)?
    When you have answered all those questions I think you will have worked out the answer - and don't forget to unplug the modem. Come back when you get your results and tell us the outcome.

    haha yessss.
    more than enough time, even for detailed subjects.
    as long as you went to the classes you will have a basic knowledge, it's just refreshing your memory and expanding the knowledge you have into the more detailed aspects.
    plenty of time, enjoy your christmas

    It's completely dependent on yourself; I've until now to some point in January to revise for three retakes and get at least As in each.

    Don't be a douche!

    What he said is 100% true.

    It is down to YOU whether it is enough time. If you revise a lot then yes, why not? If you don't put in the effort then probably not!
