They would normally take 2 years but with the right attitude would be quite quick.

I am a teacher of Biology and Chemistry Alevel and i am happy to tutor you (at a slight cost) if that is something you'd be interested in

they're designed to be learnt in 2 years, but could possibly be done in 1 if you're really smart?

Usual timeframe is probably about 18 months. (September y12 to March-May y13) You could do it in less, depending on ability and support available etc.

Maths could probably be quicker (in school we did it in about 6 or 7 months), but biology and chemistry have so much content to memorise that the standard 2 years is more likely no matter how quickly you understand it.

if you are starting from September next year with a view to sit your exams in 2023, then that's the usual timeframe and you don't have anything to worry about.

If you want to start now with a view to sit your exams in 2022, that'll be a lot more time-pressured but could still be possible. I'd ask someone who knows your ability better.

Considering most people do them over two years in school with 3-5 hours of taught lessons a day, and then several hours of extra study every night/at the weekend, you'd probably be cutting it fine only having 4 hours a day to put in.

Do you have a particular goal in mind such as a place on a particular degree?
