Would it be possible to sit A-level English literature, ancient history, and economics with 7-8 months of revision and no teacher?

Anything's possible, but it depends on how you work, prior knowledge, time commitment and dedication. If by 'revision' you mean total learning time, then it would be fairly difficult unless you're already very used to a very high work load and turnover rate. If by 'revision' you mean revision, ie going over what you've already been taught, then it would be more realistic, but still difficult as all these subjects require very good essay technique which is hard to develop without a teacher. As such, I would suggest that it's not a very realistic goal.

if you're resitting so you've learnt the course over 2 years then yes but if you're planning to learn from scratch, you're gonna struggle.

I have done these subjects up until halfway through year 13 so I am missing a bit of information but I think I have enough to go on.

Got cut off halfway through year 13 and haven't seriously revised since as exams were canceled twice so I have some work to do but, I still remember quite a lot of what I learned.

hm, i guess it's possible then? you'd have to cover the content you haven't covered yet quite fast though so you can use the time remaining to revise

I think that I'm going to get in touch with my old A-level teachers and offer them payment to mark some papers so that I can get some feedback. Hopefully, that increases my odds of success. Tutors in A-levels English literature and ancient history are very hard to come by so this is my only option.

that doesn't sound like a terrible idea as long as you're not a current student of theirs! best of luck- yeah, those subject tutors aren't very common !!
