Nope,
but I'd get started right away if you really want to get the 95% as those are tough subjects (I did 3 of your 4 and didn't get a single A in year 12 having got all A/A*'s at GCSE)

Far Far too late,
I started "revising" just after Easter, but really nothing like as much as I should have until end of April and evne then not enough
I coasted through GCSE's gettign good grades and foolishly believed I could do the same,
the result was no A's and being a grade or two below my targets

for contrast now in my A2 years I've already done my revison timetable from start of April through to exams, and I'm aiming to do two hours a day and then 6 on weekends, of 1 hour long sessions,
As I'm re-doing some AS's as well as my A2's I have something like 10 exams to prepare for and I'd hate to have to redo a year.

Key is though to plan stuff in where you can be doing other things,
for example I've left Saturday night and Sunday morning empty, so I can go out and get drunk, and I've accounted for sports and just some free-time,

Whatever your teachers say their is such a thing as too much, plan to do more then you achieve more when you fail to reach your targets

I'll be shocked if I stick to it, but I have to at least try.

It's not too late but don't look for excuses, you should really start now.
Just think about failing miserably, it'll give you that motivation lol.

not at all

only dropped 2-6 UMS in bio exams and I revised a few days before (granted: i did have an understanding of the topics, but it's really not difficult at all if you study now)

just work now, try your best, have faith!

Really?
no m8 just messing. I did get 90% + in most of my AS papers though but it required more work than that. Started quite late though to be fair but when I did my work was quite intense.

Wow you guys need to chill. Enjoy a levels while you can, I didn't do anywhere near that. Like an hour a day for a month before. I presume your doing it for Oxbridge but there's no guarantee you'll get an offer, your better off just chilling while you can and going to a second rate top tier uni, don't waste your life when you can

That's possibly the worst advice ever! Getting decent A-Level grades is 100% worth the effort and time!

-They get you into top unis.
-They unlock many grad schemes and the like which require high A-Level grades.
-Boosts your confidence, which is certainly helpful.
-Most importantly, doing your best means that you're mature enough to handle the university workload, which is -even for what you said- critical for your future.

Please don't tell others to chill and not try as much during exams. If anything, you should be doing the exact opposite. Asking someone to hide his potential is so wrong on many levels!

I disagree. I started (after) Easter.

Never too late if you understand throughout the year.

Depends how intelligent you are... It is definitely possible yes, but not for everybody.
