I want to lose a stone and a half in 4 months is this realistic? How many calories would I need to cut to do this?

That's doable yes.

Stick to 1,200 calories a day, and do an hour of exercise a day.

But only attempt to lose weight if you are actually overweight in the first place.

62.2kg. At the start of 2020 I was 50kg so I’d like to get fairly close to that again. My activity levels had dropped a lot and I’ve started to eat more junk especially as I have uni exams coming up

I’m not overweight but I’ve put a decent amount of weight on

if you're not overweight, then a stone and a half is a bit much to lose. Half a stone to tone up would be more like it.

I was the same weight for 5 years but with lockdowns I put a stone and a half on. I think I'll start with half a stone and see how it goes

Yes, that is possible.
To lose weight you have to be into calorie deficit by at least 500 calories, achieved through daily dietary consumption and exercise.
Are you trying to achieve a specific weight, measurements, body fat % range or appearance? :confused:
