Hi guys, just some background information to contextualise the situation;

-I'm on a gap year re-doing my A levels, 6 exams in total
-taking Edexcel History, OCR Sociology and AQA Business Studies
-Above average intelligence and ability and I'm willing to work extremely hard as I desperately want to achieve in these set of exams


Any tactics to get up to A grade level for all the exams? How many hours of work do I realistically need to put in?

Please be honest and be brutually straight forward in terms of stating how much work I need to put in.

Yes, make a revision schedule though. If you are able to allocate lots of hours per day eg 6hours you could do it

I work all day Saturday and Sunday and I work from 5pm-midnight every weekday. Do you think I have enough time in my schedule?

In general, this wouldn't be too late. You have done the courses before, so hypothetically know all of the content and need to revise it and hopefully it will all come back quickly.
You also only have 4 A2 and 2 AS exams, which lightens the workload massively.
The exact amount that you need to revise depends on how much revision you need and is useful for you. It also depends on what grades you hope to achieve.
If you think you'll need more time, you could consider taking some time off work if this is possible in your situation.
