Is that too much work at AS?
And is it possible for me to get at least 90 UMS in all of them revising from day 1?

It is entirely possible, a guy in my class did what you did and came out with 2 A* and 2 A's.

I lasted 2 months at that combo (was doing 5) and dropped physics, it is a lot of work but a nice combo.

Whether it's too much work depends on you. I went to a school were plenty of people did this combination or similar at AS and attained good grades (AAB-AAAA), so it's not humanly impossible. It does take commitment, and when it comes time to study for the exams it will be a big part of your day, there's little doubt about that.

I did Maths, Chemistry, Physics and History AS, and personally, History was the most work for me, though biologists assure me - and I believe them - that biology takes the most work/"hard learning" of the sciences, with chemistry a close second.

Revising from day 1 is something my school recommends and something no one does. I honestly don't know if it'd help because I haven't tried. I tend to revise heavily for my winter exams to solidify the first half of the course and then keep a level of revision going until exam time.

It can be done, and many do, but a sizeable minority studying this combo ended up dropping one of their 4 before exam time too. But if we could do it, there's no reason you can't. You already know it's going to be tough enough so you'll be prepared.

Did that with further maths as well. Easily doable. None of them are that high volume subjects, it's more intuition.
