    Due to some complications I just found out that I'll be sitting the CIE A-Levels in June 2017 and home studying it with some help from tutors. So I have about 5 Months to study Maths, Physics and Chemistry. Do you think it's possible if I really studied hard so no video games, going out to town etc for 5 months to score As? Or is this something that you'll hear only a child genius would do? I know A-Level are difficult but am willing to buck down to score As.
    Edit: AS Examinations in June Only

    If it's AS, I think it's definitely possible, provided you work extremely hard.

    Try learning the material as well as you can and then drown yourselves in practicing past papers. Also if you have practical papers, make sure you have enough hands on practice too. A lot of people seem to not focus on labs but they will bring down your grade if you get a bad mark in them. Just keep that in mind and you'll do great.

    Best of luck!

    You've more of a chance to pass in five months than you do in four or less. Good luck!
