    Hello! I am starting sixth form in September, and I finished school on the 20th of June, and all I've done at home since is eat all day, I'm so bored! So I thought I would come on this and ask if any of you can recommend anything I can do to prepare myself for the subjects in the title? Obviously I have read the specifications and for computing I have started programming. Anything else you people can recommend please? Thank you!

    For history I'd recommend finding out the topics you will be doing and then simply doing a bit of research on them. It'll be a good start to enter the new year with background knowledge on the topics

    Biology is more of a difficult one, again perhaps just read around the topics, learn a few processes. I guess you could also look at a few past papers to get a feel of the exam structure and what you're expected to know (only if you know the exam board of course)

    History definitely look up your specification and do background reading so you have a general idea of what will be going on in your class come September! I would give you an overview of the History course, but I doubt you do CCEA (which is the Northern Ireland exam board)!

    Psychology.. not much you can do. Teacher will need to teach you how to answer questions first.

    Biology - recap basic gcse stuff like osmosis, diffusion etc.. also you might want to look at the more interesting things like structure of heart, structure of DNA etc but make sure you follow your spec

    Why don't you just go out and have fun? It's summer!!
