    So I just finished my last exam yesterday and now I am going to have nothing to do in the holidays apart from watching movies and playing the sims 3 for 4 hours straight. Any suggestions on what to do on the holidays apart from these things?

    Do other hobbies you like:

    Try exercising (do an unusual, new sport you haven't done before), read a book perhaps, I might try improving my horrible art skills (I found this great 3D artist, Jonathan Harris on YouTube, watch some of his videos and draw!)

    Work experience? NCS?

    Personally I would start doing a level topics...I don't mean like practice everyday for hours, but maybe once to twice a week try and learn a topic or even a section of a topic so that when you go into year 12 you're work load won't be as much. Even twice a week to learn a topic would give you an unimaginable boost when you start your new academic year. Obviously there is no pressure or strict rule to study/practice as its the summer holidays which makes it a lot less stressful for yourself plus you're getting the things done.
    Also make sure to relax and enjoy your summer holidays...reading books is a good way to spend your time.
    This is what I'll do when I'll be in year 12 and definitely this summer holiday because I have a feeling year 11 will be stressful.

    If you have any friends who aren't going to the same college as you, try to see them as much as possible because once college starts, you probably won't see them much any more
    Also, keeping a summer blog and looking at different uni courses you'd like to do may be fun

    I set myself several targets over the holidays, you might want to make some of these more relevant to you but here are mine:

    Finish book 11 of TWoT
    Finish an Airfix model
    Learn another long piece of Chopin (#ChopinisloveChopinislife)
    Finish learning the Jazz pieces for Swing band (I play lead piano)
    Get back into playing the accordion
    Create at least one Excel document that takes more than a minutes and contains at least one advanced macro
    Learn some more Disney on the piano
    Get back into doing a little running
    And get involved in several debates on TSR

    Hopefully not crying when I open my results and it says 14 'U's rather than c. 6 'A*'s, 3 'A's, 2 'B's ad a 'C'

    Start prepping for AS or develop a hobby/interest.

    On my AS break I'm:

    - Going through the German A2 textbook and learning all the vocab lmao.
    - Reading about German history, especially East Germany (which we do in A2)
    - Learning Russian (which I start at uni on a beginners course)

    And I'm enjoying those things greatly :}

    NETFLIX

    I think you made an error here Netflix and chill are on separate lines?
    Surely Netflix n' Chill is better than lonely Netflix.
