It all depends how efficient your learning/revision, I would suggest watching youtube videos on the topics you struggle with to better understand them. When you have covered all of the topics you should do past papers... lots of them, these will help you to consolidate your knowledge and see what areas you still need to work on. But yeah, if you did 4 hours of revision every day until exams it is definitely possible

If you have already studied the material and are asking if there is enough time for revision and exam preparation then depending on your aptitude the answer is yes. If you are asking if it is possible to start now with no previous study of maths at this level then I'd say the answer is most probably no.

What I'd say you should do:
Go into past papers, pick out questions that get asked each year, make sure you learn how to do them.
That right there would maybe get you a C.
^ Best method of doing this is to go on BBC Bitesize, pick out each topic and write that down on a note pad, then tallying what appears.

For example doing this:
Biology what's in exams + how many marks/questions on the topic.
Cell questions 8
Migration questions 5...
It may be broad but you'll always see a small pattern for what they include.

I'm not sure whats in A level but for higher maths we always seem to have integration, differentiation, circle, straight line and polynomial questions.

^those would be the topics I'd heavily focus on.

When I've done a relatively fast skim of the subject I'd go and do each past paper (possibly twice) depending on how much time you put in.

You could definitely get a B or even an A if you did all of this. Ask your teachers for help if you get stuck too btw.
