Right, so a few weeks ago I received an offer from LSE to study international social and public policy with politics. The condition was that I get AAB. I was thrilled until in realised that the condition also stated that I was to get AAB, in subjects EXCLUDING Business studies. Now, I am doing the CIE A levels in Economics, English, Business and Maths. I gave the English exam in October and received an A. Since most unis need only 3 A level subjects and since Maths was not a requirement for my course in any of the universities, I decided that Math was not for me and stopped studying for it.
Obviously, the decision to stop studying math was taken long before I received any of my offers. Anyway, since LSE did not explicitly state that they needed math, but stated that they did not need business (which inevitably left me with math), I decide to write them an email asking that if I were to take an A level law exam in may June and was to get AAB in Economics, English and law, would my offer still hold
To surprise they actually said yes.
Since I live in India, I give the February march series of the exam and I would be done with my A level eco and bst on 4th March. The law exam is on 27th may and I will be sitting AS as well as A2 papers to receive the full A level. So that's 4 papers and 2 years of course essentially and about 80 days to complete it. I also don't have a teacher and will be preparing on my own.
In my humble opinion, I would consider myself to be above the average level of intelligence. I'm a genius my no means but I think I'm a quick learner and can retain information effectively. The question is - CAN IT BE DONE????

not even a B?
I did A level English in about 20 days and got an A. But to be fair, it was 2 papers as opposed to 4 for Law and I had done IGCSE English as well so it wasn't an entirely new subject for me. But I'm really hoping I can scrape a B for law. If I study 4 hours consistently every day, without fail then maybe just maybe 280 hours of law would get me a B

With no prior knowledge of law or experience studying it, the chances of getting a B grade in just two months of study is probably <5%. It's a fraction of the time available, and similar to the amount of time a candidate might spend revising the subject, not learning the content AND revising!

Unless you are a genius (and that would be evidenced by your having done something similar to this previously), I think you need to urgently rethink this strategy.

I'm doing A-Level law, albeit with a teacher at school, but I could NEVER imagine myself learning all the content with my other subjects all in 2 months. Even doing AS in that would be such a struggle. The amount of content in Law is insane.
