I'm in Year 11, started some light reading for Chemistry as I enjoy it and have heard the jump up is very big. I'm not 'studying' the actual a-level course yet, but I have looked through the spec. Am watching and making notes on Crash Course atm. I think it is good to get a head start, but only if you want to. this is purely because I am a nerd and literally do read chemistry to relax.

I've found a show that uses German subtitles but do you think I should I try to avoid looking at them because I find it easier to look at subtitles and translate than translate through listening?
I have a pen-pal so I'll try to speak to them more in German. Thank you so much! I'm really looking forward to taking German next year! + I hope your ASs went well!
It's no problem, I'm so glad you're looking forward to it! We really need more language students at A-Level. And thank you, I hope so too!!!

Tbh (for maths) i took a very brief look at C1 yesterday to see what is involved, and it really doesn't seem to be a step up from GCSE, and so I don't think it requires work to be done over the summer. Yes, the other units will obviously be harder, but they'll be further down the line so even if you did learn it now, it is unlikely that you'll perfectly remember the stuff by the time you actually come to learn it.
When I had my taster lesson for further maths, I think the same can be said - FP1 seems manageable enough to learn at the same pace as what you do in class. Can't speak for the whole A Level obviously, as it was only a 1 hour session.
