Re-reading your GCSE revision guides/notes once or twice wouldn't hurt I suppose. If you still want a head start perhaps get the Head start to AS *enter subject here* from CGP Books; it focuses on some of the harder GCSE concepts and concepts learnt earlier in the year at AS so could be of some benefit.

I've come to realise many GCSE members of TSR find it quite insane when some other TSR members, alongside I, admitted that we were going to get a head start of A-levels but now I wan to know the debate as to why it's a good idea - from others besides myself - and why some think it's not.
My first reason at this moment in time, is because the weather has been rubbish in England, and so I feel there's really nothing 'exciting' for me to do now that my early summer has begun. I feel I spent my time on the IPad searching away or simply watching MTV. I feel like I should do something worth while if I find myself free everyday waking up at a time I please knowing that I'm not really scheduled to do anything..
But I just wanted to point out that those students who do decide to take a proactive approach to A-levels are not stupid because I really don't think a stupid person would even take a proactive approach, not really anyways.
Prepared for the negs
If that isn't quenching your thirst to learn then you could always read around the subject? Interested in Physics? Read A Brief History of Time - Stephen Hawking.
Enrichment is probably more beneficial than learning the syllabus before the course starts.
I have read over my GCSE books but apart from that I've volunteered, done part time work, worked out, played on the xbox, read popular science books and slept. It's actually heaven.
EDIT: The rest of my time is spent procrastinating on TSR and Facebook

Lol you make me laugh. Why would what seems to be trolling disgruntle me? It makes me laugh. You clearly dont understand the purpose of my question, never mind better than me. The whole point of this post was not for people to reinforce my idea, it was so I could get their opinion, and I certainly got yours which I was never ignoring..feel free to lie about something else
if all I was doing was hoping for more people to back up my post (and there was few), then I wouldn't have actually created the thread with such a question..it would be more like 'reason as to why I think I want to study in the summer holidays.' on top of this, if you actually read my post, it says says I want to know why people would agree with me beside my pointers and why others wouldn't, so no like I said, you don't know what the heck the intentions of this thread really are, otherwise I doubt you would think this thread was pointless.

To be fair, I think I understood the purpose of your question better than you did. You weren't asking people for their own opinions, you were asking them to reinforce your own.
Feel free to ignore all my advice again, and only reply to a tiny bit which disgruntles you.
But seriously if you're like the other user and think this post is boring then don't post! The fact that you're posting is clearly saying something else..don't worry your thought of my thread will not hurt me.
