    Summer can be really useful to get ahead, but frankly, your teachers won't be expecting much of you over this period (even if they say they are). You've put in a lot of hard work, especially over the last few weeks/months, and you actually deserve a rest.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with having a few weeks or months off and getting started again in August or September. You'll burn yourself out of you keep working non stop

    University can be motivation! If you're planning on going, then needing to get certain grades to get to your perfect uni should be great motivation.

    Do you mean lessons?
    Over the Summer for A2 taught myself the first module of some of my subjects. Just don't over do it, you'll be bored in lesson and exhausted!

    Oh I see what you mean, sorry i'm in the same boat really, I just wasn't expecting you to be talking about 'revision' if you mean learning new content set yourself a very limited list of goals over the summer if it will make you feel better. In order to better myself ready for this gap between AS and A2, i've just decided on about 10 spec points to cover overall with my subjects over the summer. As Swadq rightly said, your teachers won't be expecting you to go and learn a whole module, furthermore you really don't want to come back to school in september for the long grind feeling like you've had no rest for a 2 year stretch. Just use the summer valuably, every other school holiday up until next summer will most likely be utilised with coursework/homework/revision so make the most of every second!

    You don't need to start A2 revision now.
    I'm not even doing anything in lessons. You've just had a load of exams and it's best to give yourself a bit of a break, and maybe start revision later on in the summer holidays (around mid August)

    It will help, but make sure you relax you'll feel much better in September.
    Are you doing AS physics as an extra?

    i am doing AS physics as my forth AS during my A2 and another reason why i i am doing it is because i don't want to do general studies

    You would need a rest , but that at the same time , maintaining your academic rigour is important
