    it's definitely possible! im doing AS levels now and i remember my friends doing the same back in their IGs. they had gotten from a C to an A with rigorous revision and past papers within a time frame similar to 4 months.

    you can do it! it's all about prioritising and time management.

    Hey

    So even though you've only got 4 months, it's never too late to somewhat improve your mark. The general rule is - "do little and often'.' Cramming may give you those last little points you need before the exam but it will only stay in your short term memory and you can't learn a whole syllabus a day before your exam - trust me. In order to get it into your long term you need to practice regularly. However, this doesn't mean you need to be studying 24/7. In fact, your brain needs time to digest stuff and so going out and doing sport or being creative will help you both relax and get that stuff in your brain.

    So basically, don't dive head first into doing way too much work at once - it probably won't benefit you too much. Keep the work load steady, but make sure you're doing it with no distractions (ie, turn the phone off!!)

    Hope this helps a bit
