hi,
i have to do 15 exams(9 A2 exams and 6 AS resits) and right now i have not started revision nor have i understood the stuff properly...i know a better decision would be to wait for one more year and give some of my exams then but just the thought of waiting for so much time and seeing my friends go to uni and being stuck at home for one whole year is just too depressing. is it possible for me to get my A's in all 15 units with the time i have(i.e 2months)? how many hours should i study?what study plan do you recommend?

You have left it late but you should never be too pessimistic, my first instinct would be to get a hold of all the specifications of your subjects, because they make A-Levels far easier, and begin making notes on all these things slowly out of textbooks and revision guides. Ticking things off as you go along, at the end of each chapter do questions if arts a practice essay or two (exam style) get a teacher to mark and compare to notes see how you can improve. If science exam questions again critical, study the mark schemes and read examiners reports. Finally in a month or so start doing the full past paper under timed conditions, mark them and point out weaknesses, work on those and continue as before. It has to be cyclic and regular, in terms of time it is very difficult, I would say as a guideline however aim for a minimum of 8 on non-school days. I say this because it's important to recognise it won't come v easily and will need a decent bit of work. On school days maybe 3-4 would be okay.

2 Months is no way late, dont be silly!
I'm planning to start in March
you definitely have more than enough time, this forum is definitely the minority when it comes to the time they spend revising and talking about it LOL
most people i know who get A's at AS and A2, do about 5/6 weeks

It's a bit on the late side but I wouldn't say it's completely impossible. Try working through topic by topic and doing practise questions. Also you need to spend the time you have left wisely - good luck

If anyone is new here just keep doing past papers because 2 months is nothing you should be revising from the start of year 13
