I have been preemptively studying for university since June. The first year is actually going to be a cakewalk for me.

On topic though, I did the same last year and studied for my third A-Level during the summer.

It depends whether you do content dense subjects,it really feels like we get no holidays while we stress about results.Im waiting for the 13th then I'm going to create my study timetable and organize everything I need to do.One solid year of studying left before uni, we are just going to have to work really hard.

A-Level Philosophy. I did not finish the spec in thst time since I was starting it fresh from the beginning (I did two A-Levels, AS and A2, the previous year).

It is not too late to study - you still have a month.

If you are looking to revise over summer here's a few tips for biology and chemistry:

Practice moles calculations & titration questions

Watch a few videos to get a feel for some of the topics - my chemistry teacher is Tywin Lannister on youtube, his videos are pretty good

Assuming you're on AQA, summarise all the key areas of AS biology - you'll need these for the 25 mark essay in BIOL5 (it's not as scary as it sounds!)

Look at the bio spec and read around some of the topics (also useful for the essay)
