    Anything's possible but to go from DEE to A* A* A* will mean 0 life for the next 5 months and a lot of cans of red bull,cups of coffee and whatever the hell else you need to stay awake as well and even that might not be enough,so to summarise possible yes probably one of the hardest things you could ever do yes

    If this is to get into uni, I wouldn't bother. If you're too lazy to study for your A levels, imo you don't deserve uni.

    AAA is more realistic.

    What did you get at AS?
    If you got what you said DEE then is there much point applying for AAA or A*AA courses when a few uni's would probably look on your results and wonder why your applying that much higher up than what you got?

    Ah right,fair enough,that'll make it a lot easier for your exams then if your AS knowledge is strong enough to get decent grades like that I'd imagine.

    Ah same with me with psychology and computer science theory but when you come back round to revising it trust me the knowledge you had last year 90% will still be intact its just learning to use it all again and all the methods etc

    If you have some aptitude then you should be able to do it. 5 months is a long time.
