Correct answer is now, as soon as you start doing alevels, you can’t cram alevels, especially not 4, you need to be actively going through the content now, there will be no time at the end to go through everything there’s that much content.

I crammed at it meant spending 6-10 hours a day for a month studying just to get 3A’s. I cannot stress enough revising now and throughout alevels gives you the best possible chance of getting the best grades

i did maths bio chem, I almost failed. Take it from me, NO later than the start of January. Literally no later. If you start full on bashing at the start of January you'll be fine

I did history, economics and politics. I didn't 'study' or revise as I went along, but we were constantly assessed with essays every other week in all three subjects, so I built up a massive load of thorough, detailed essay plans. I started seriously studying about a month and a bit before my a levels - this might seem late, but I had an accumulation of very detailed and thorough notes. I focused in (some) lessons and frees (I used these as study sections) throughout sixth form and then chilled out on weekends. I've always been more of a crammer because I seem to have no long term memory capacity lol. I ended up with 3 A*s !

As soon as possible. The sooner you begin with, the more time you have to learn things into single detail. And the details matter at this level! if it is about exams, I recommend a half year, so six months before the first exam day.
