    Planning on re-sitting english, politics and history totalling 3 extra exams on top of
    my A2s so that i can get two A*s and hopefully an A by then end of this year.

    How possible/ good of an idea do you guys think this is?

    I had 10 hours worth of free periods at school, I used those. 2 solid hours every evening.4-6 hours on weekend. so that equates to roughly 30+ hours per week.

    I don't get why teachers give useless homework :s the only thing i used to get was 2/3 question booklets for chemistry, an essay every week from english and sociology. and the rest was me making notes and re-reading what i did in lesson, or going over stuff i didn't quite understand in lesson. i never could work pass 9pm myself, yeah definitely be more productive in your frees! it helps a ton!

    I'm doing the equivalent of that too - I'm resitting one of my not so great AS exams while sitting a whole new AS (two exams) on top of 3 A2's. I think (or maybe hope) that it's entirely possible as I'm aiming for 3 A*'s. My daily routine though is get up at 6, revise, go to college, come home and revise, sleep, then repeat

    You need to make sure that you give equal attention to all ur subjects so you can stay ontop of all ur work. It will be hard work but if you're committed it will be WAY worth it!! I plan to resit two module exams to improve my grade you could do the same to lessen the workload a bit if its possible

    How were your retakes taken into account for your predicted grades?

    well since I got ABCC (dropped one of the Cs) I was predicted AAB (the other C was almost a B). I ended up with AAA so then I re-applied
