    I saw this post the other day with a guy having DEE and wanting to go to AAA in 5 months... I am currently doing AS, but I would like to score high on them. Would it be possible to go from CDE to AAB or ABB in 5 months or so? What do you think?

    I'm sure yes. It is possible. As long as the revision you're doing is effective, methodical and you understand all your content - you can do it. I believe in you. You could even get AAA if you start now and work hard. What subjects do you do?

    History isnt what I'd call easy! I take it and I love it anyway though. I take politics too. You'll get there, for history what I find is good is memorising facts and figures using flash cards and then pretending to teach a lesson or give a lecture in your room so that you can conduct a strong cogent argument on the spot. Helps a lot with essay writing. Politics on the other hand is heavy exam practise, timed conditions and practise questions is the way to go.

    Thanks for the answer. I do agree with you: History is not easy however, politics is a lot about keeping up with the news and knowing how to argue in essays.
    I will try your flash card advice :-)
