    I thought this before I started my a levels properly, do NOT attempt it in 4 months you'll just get disappointed and demotivated. Doing the whole year is hard work as it is! You may be a straight A* student but you never know how you'll handle it.

    That's a pretty strict target, you need to find a balance however if you do it this year and if it doesn't work out and you are aiming for something like med at uni, they won't accept resits

    hahahaha 4 months is nowhere near enough time to learn all and still get good grades in A level. Please don't deceive yourself.
    Finish your gcse's then do A levels afterwards.

    I do biology, chemistry and geography A level.

    I seriously wouldn't recommend it. Chemistry A level is verrrry difficult, much much more than gcse - this is coming from someone who got A* at gcse and am aiming for an A* at a level.
    I don't see what benefit doing a levels early is anyways.

    Yeah biology even more hours than chemistry as there is so much content to learn.
    Do what you want but it's probably unachievable

    i understand is quite hard but i heard that igcse is more close to alevels than gcse so am going to give IT 100 per cent and ill revise as hard as i can going to buy cgp an revise everything and do as much past papers as possible thats what matters besides following the footsteps of my friend he did the same and got two A and a B WHICH IS IMPRESSIVE
