    Contact your subject teachers for which book and exam board you are gonna study from next year. Practise bridging from GCSEs to a level and don't tire yourself too much other wise you won't be bothered next year.

    Right now this summer, just relax and enjoy your summer! There is no need to start studying right away, I did nothing before I started sixth form and my A levels went just fine! When you get your GCSE results you may change your mind on what subjects you're going to study and then it would have been a waste of time. Just complete any tasks your sixth form may set you but just take this break because you'll need it before you start A levels!
    When doing your A levels I'd say that you should try and keep on top of everything and put the work in from day 1, it will be worth it! I'm not saying to revise from September but do tasks set and make sure you understand all the content covered in class! I'd try and make sure I did a couple hours extra a night and in my frees to consolidate information and I started revision for my January mocks around November/December and carried on for my exams in June!

    Don't start now. Way too early. My regrets with a level are I didn't try properly and did the bare minimum and had to sweat hard AF weeks before exams. Do a certain amount of extra study on top of hw everyday throughout the year, start past papers when you've finished the module, don't leave them for right before exams, the minute u don't understand ask for help/find help. What subjects are u studying may I ask?
