    So I was just wondering, seeing that things are a bit slow at the moment, if I were to start brushing up on the odd bit of my AS/A level syllabus for next year, in year 11 atm, so just asking, is it a good idea, to know some stuff before hand, e.g. familiarizing myself with some basic calculus concepts, e.t.c., before I get into year 12?

    no. you should concentrate on getting great GCSEs and worry about A-Level later. you may think you wont change your mind about the A-Level subjects you have chosen to study next year, but you might and you will have wasted your time learning AS concepts and then wont take the subject in the end.

    No, just concentrate on your GCSEs for now. You'll have between the end of exams and September to look over AS/A-Level content.
