    I'm in second year. Really, I have no excuse. I procrastinated entire first year and first half of the second so now I'm left with like 3 months to revise everything and I'm STILL procrastinating. Is it possible, if I start hardcore revision now, to get good grades (I'm aiming for AAB but that's kind of laughable now I think).

    I don't think so. But, prove me wrong.

    Rubbish.

    Most people don't begin hardcore revision until Easter. 3 months is a long time if you use it wisely.

    I don't know about OP but this certainly gives me confidence. How many hours would you say 'hard-core' revision is?

    3-4 hours per day.

    Look, A-levels are subjective. Only YOU know how big or small your workload is.

    If you're like me and you're doing 4 A-levels, then it's obvious that you'll be needing to put more work in than say someone who is only doing 2 or 3 subjects (yes, some people at my school are only studying 2).

    Like I've said previously, 3 months is a long time if you use it well.

    Don't panic at all, that is the worst thing you can do.

    Make a revision plan (obviously don't try to factor in a ridiculous amount of hours per day - you need down time).

    Believe me when I say that many A-level students don't begin hardcore until Easter (Google it if you don't believe me).

    You have plenty of time! Just don't waste it.

    Hard to tell. Too many variables, How much progress have you already made, how smart, how hard etc.

    What you do know is you can achieve a lt in 3 months if you knuckle down and you will be in a better position than if you do not. Dont think you have to go any further than that. Focus rather than letting your mind wander onto irrelevant things.

    There is nothing impossible to him who will try.

    YOU CAN DO IT!
    People in my school went from a U to an A* in 1 1/2 months.
    If you start now, put in the hours and practice through exam questions I am sure you can do it.
