    (1) Try to keep on top of your work and review your notes regularly. It is very easy to fall behind!
    (2) Make sure to take time for yourself too and keep yourself healthy by taking breaks. It's just as important as revising IMO.
    (3) If you get stressed out, be sure to ask for help. It can be hard to ask for help but it's the best thing I did when I was doing mine.
    (4) Relax this summer - there's really no need to read ahead if you don't want to. You deserve a break after GCSEs.
    (5) Try to enjoy it. Everyone says A-Levels are much harder than GCSEs and whilst that's not necessarily untrue (although I do feel the jump is exaggerated by many), you'll hopefully be doing the subjects you enjoy the most so it can be interesting.

    Good luck!

    Seriously. Get ahead, they're difficult! Much much more difficult than GCSEs if I were you (which I was this time last year) I'd start studying now!

    The main tip I'd say is keep on top of work, even if you only miss one lesson it's easy to fall behind!
    Also seriously don't leave revision till the last minute, doing so at GCSE wasn't a huge deal but at A level there's much more content to cover

    And don't forget to have free time and time to relax as well Use free periods wisely

    Good luck though! They are hard but if you're doing subjects you enjoy, you'll enjoy the challenge :laugh:
