Would it be a smart idea to prepare for Year 12 during the holiday or should I wait till September and relax during the holiday. What are you doing to spend the holiday and prepare for year 12?

I'd say do some revision a few times a week but mainly relax. I'm catching up on a few shows on netflix, going for a walk every couple of days and reading a few book series. There's usually some a level videos online which you could watch to prepare for year 12 or you could buy some textbooks and read over it through the holidays.

Seeing as our holiday's began when our last exam finished, you could perhaps spend the remainder of 'term time' to look at A Level resources and spend most of the official summer holiday's relaxing. Don't strain yourself too much though, you don't want to overwork yourself especially since exams didn't really finish all that long ago!

Perhaps break your time up? I've been mainly watching shows on Netflix, tutorials on YouTube and reading through some books I purchased ages ago. Take some time to relax, you deserve it after the exams I haven't been looking too much into what the A Level courses consist of yet, obviously I've researched some of it but in depth research is a job for closer to results day I reckon!

My school gave us a lot of work to prepare ourselves before we begin our A Levels so I've been going through that.

I did work experience last week.

I'm searching for a job.

Should be going out of the city in a few weeks.

You should definitely spend some time revising for AS and don't rely on your teacher's when September comes.

Its better to be independent now so you know the content before college/sixthform begins.

I'm not even going to look into course content this summer. I've made a timetable for next year and just written maths revision etc so that I can fill it in at a later date when I know the course content. Over the summer I have filled my time to keep me busy, I'm doing NCS at the moment, am camping for 3 weeks (not all in one go), travelling to Amsterdam, London, Wales, going to see shows etc. Enjoy the time that you have, do something for the local community and just chill! Have a lovely summer!

I am doing all the work my school set me and then sorting my kit for world challenge then going on world challenge. Hopefully after that I should be able to be a bit more relaxed and still do a bit of independent work when I am on holiday.

I'm starting to build a portfolio of creative writing and scripts as I want to get into film and writing for tv. Also I'm doing Spanish next year and that's probably the only prep I'll do for next year just so I don't forget it all haha

Tell you what, considering I'm about to move into Year 11 myself, I'd more than likely ask what Year 10's are doing to prepare for Year 11.

Revise, revise, revise!! I'd probably make sure you have all your revision notes ready- it definitely will make life easier when it comes to exams if you can spend time learning notes, not writing them (which I made the mistake of doing)

Also just try and recap what you've learnt this year but in a fun way, for example watching spanish TV shows if you're studying spanish

Well I do study Spanish as of present, so I will take up your suggestion and hope for the best. Thanks. Also, good luck to whatever new stage of your life that you're about to enter.

NCS, Netflix, Steam, work experience. You don't really need to start studying to bridge the gap until a week or two before the start of school.
