    I don't get it. Internal mocks? Are you in Year 11? Haven't you just finished GCSEs? Don't have a go at me if I'm getting the wrong end of the stick - I'm just confused.
    I'm currently doing AS material.
    So while we're finishing off mocks we're learning some a level stuff too ^-^ this like when most exams are done

    Personally, I don't see the point in us having ten weeks off. Wouldn't it be better to start learning A-level content?

    I'm starting over the summer anyway.
    Mate, I'm just about to finish my A2 exams and if all you want to do is start them, then you need to take a long hard look at yourself and reevaluate your life

    Well, Maths is hard at A-level. I've heard literally every student complain of how hard it is and if they'd started after their GCSEs, I think they would have been helped massively. Even baby subjects like Psychology and A-level Fashion, people struggle with (however, it would be understandable not to do work for these).

    I do maths, and I can tell you now that doing 10 weeks more work will make no difference to your grade. Enjoy freedom whilst you can because soon enough work is just going to pile on top of you

    Make the most of it. A-Levels take up most of your time next year anyway.
