    Messed up big time last year, doing AS + A2, if I were to do 8 hours revision a day from tomorrow, is there even a chance that I can get AAA, or have I left it too late?

    Well of course theres a chance. You still have plenty of time and it's not like you just physically can't get an A in an exam just because you havent started 10 months before.

    You have a far better chance if you revise intelligently in that timeframe than the hordes who spend months vacantly skimming badly written notes.

    Identifying what you need to memorise/get your head around to score highly, and do so in as little time as possible without fluffing it. You need to find what method is most effective for you in doing this, but just make sure your revision actually has a view to training you to meet the requirements of the mark scheme.

    Around one grade improvement per subject I would imagine is reasonable.
    There are only around 5 months left.

    I'd recommend you retake the whole year again. It's going to be difficult but you'll be able to do it if you do what @Birkenhead said.

    I am 'only' retaking 4 modules from last year and I find it difficult to manage revision time.

    I was considering this. I'm probably not even going to be getting any university offers because of poor AS grades.

    It's certainly possible but you haven't made it easy for yourself. The amount of content left to cover is probably significant and almost everyone would burn themselves out trying to cram it all in to a high standard by doing 8hrs+ a day (which is excessive btw). You'd have to master motivation and time management but it's possible IN THEORY.
