    I am currently doing
    BTEC Business Diploma (2 A levels)
    History A level

    BTEC is 100% coursework and I get most of it done in college time but struggling with History. I have my end of year exams in the end of May and currently on a E grade. Can I get this up to an A by the end of May? History is literally the only subject I have to revise for and planning to revise 6 hours every day starting from next Monday.

    Ask yourself - is it the hours that you put in or the way in which you revise for this A-level?

    2 hours writing essays is probably as, if not more effective than 10 hours staring at a textbook.

    Yeah planning & writing essays is good, makes you not only revise from the book and elsewhere but actually apply it

    Its definitly possible. Ensure your using your revision time productivley. As the others have said writing essays is the best revision, take them to your teacher to have them marked and get some feedback. You'll find you can quickly improve if you do it often.
