    Although technically I don't qualify as getting mostly A*s( I got 4 and 6 A's) I feel I can weigh in here, I started pretty much around easter and did around 6 hours a day, Like you I struggled with languages although mine was spanish I found the key was just to get used to how the questions were asked and found out that actually the way in which the track was phrased was relatively formulaic. With the sciences they absolutely love to make you apply your knowledge so you really need to know your stuff inside and out and above all be able to apply it to any situation they give you.
