I know this has been asked before loads of times but I'm asking a slightly different question.

Although I payed attention during Year 12 and up until now of Year 13 in class, I didn't do any revision or even make particularly good notes in class. I mostly did the bare minimum and pay attention to the oral part of any lessons.

I'm doing English, History and Government and Politics.

I want to turn my act around. Should I go complete study mode where I study basically spend all my free time revising right now (January) or just work a little harder and then go full study mode a little later? (eg. April)

Is it too late to aim for A*s and As?

Thanks for any answers.

If you think you won't burn out, the earlier the better.

Thats actually really helpful to me, thank you!

I mean I did put in some work last year for mocks/end of year exams so I know that I know everything and there's only maybe a few things from this year I genuinely havw trouble recalling. But your number of 3 hours a day sounds really doable and its making me feel a little bit better about myself. I'll give it a go and try according to that and adjust later on. Thank you though !

I did A levels last year. I revised the night before for every exam. Got A*AB, politics, geog and RS. Never too late as long as you listen in class.
