Is it possible? I do maths(A), Chemistry(B) and physics(C)- considering I revised the day before for chemistry and physics and never really tried that hard for them. Chemistry and Physics are both linear so the grades don't count towards next year.

yea it is

but the disproportionately extra time you'll spend on physics (to boost it from a C) you might reduce from the subjects you already did good in so those might go down...

realistically I'd say A* A* A is possible with hard work but that doesn't mean you can't aim for a* in physics.

I know people who have gone from a C in chemistry AS to A* at A2

I've gotten A's in Physics a few times in class tests or mocks, its just the final mock I didnt really revise for and hence the C.

I would say aim for A*AA, you don't want to be disappointed on results day next year by setting goals you can't meet.

How is A*A*A* unrealistic when I have the WHOLE year to revise.

That's provided you actually use the whole year to revise.

I don't think its possible

I think you could get a*a*b

at a stretch a*a*a

Basically because you got a C at physics AS, Im assuming your knowledge is somewhat lacking unless its a stupidly high C.

It was a high C(2marks off a B), not a low C.

Okay so in theory you got ABB

I think with A*AA with lots of hard-work.

I know maths is hard but its not too hard to get an A* if you just do like 30 past papers for each module ( i did this)

So Maybe A*A*A? At a stretch...

Again only like 1 percent of people get A*A*A*

So you should accept its rare

A levels are not as simple as you think, especially the reformed science A levels. Even getting an A will be much harder than you think.
