    And mine

    Seriously though, I'm gonna recap my AS Physics and most of my AS Chemistry, as well as the A2 work we've done so far, and do a bit of background reading but still I'll make sure I have a break.

    When I was at taster days for my prospective Sixth Form College, they said that as soon as AS exams are over, we are given A2 lessons for about 4 weeks. This is great as it helps us decide which subjects we want to drop (if any) and it also is great prep.

    You really don't need to prepare at all. Do any summer work you have been given and, if you really want to do something, read over what you've done so far at A2 level. A little look at the syllabus wouldn't be a bad idea. A2 isn't significantly harder for your subjects (I did Physics, Chemistry, Maths and German) and you should really just try to enjoy and make the most of your summer. It would be a really good idea to concentrate on your university application and to start drafting your personal statement.

    yeah- having not prepared myself and struggling with A- level- u shud prepare!! dont do too much but i wud suggest mayb going over they key parts of your course from as level again- so they are fresh in your mind for september- this is especially important for maths and biology- which all build on past work... other than that just relax and enjoy the summer!!
