    I self studied my as levels last year and got a C in maths D in physics and E in further maths, although I know I'm capable of a lot better grades than that, as I only studied for 6 weeks last year. I plan to retake the as exams and take the a levels this year, hoping for at least an A in all of it. I know I can take the studying part, but I've been told that it will be impossible to revise and do past papers for 14 papers at once and I'll just end up failing all of it. So I was just wondering if any one else has done anything similar before.

    I went from AC in maths and further maths to A*A* a2. I resat D1, D2, FP1. So it isn't nearly as many papers as you would have to take but I found that the a2 maths was easier for me since it brought all the AS stuff together.

    It's definitely possible if you actually put the work in this time.
