    So i'm currently waiting for my GCSE results in August and i've applied to 2 sixth forms, both gave me conditional offers, (both school A and B).
    I don't know if i made the grades however and school A is tougher than school B therefore i can fall back onto school B.
    Beforehand I would like to begin my revision so that i have an outlook on what i will be studying for Alevels. Many people have suggested students do this before beginning sixth form.
    The problem is that both schools follow different examining boards and i would like to purchase the books but it would be pricey to buy twice the amount of books i need.

    Sorry if this is long, but idk what to doo

    Chill, enjoy your Summer!If you want to do a bit of reading around your subject(s) prior to results day, that's what libraries are for - no need to shell out for textbooks yet.It doesn't have to be on the reading list to be relevant.

    I wouldn't buy the textbooks yet. Once you know what exam boards you'll be on, then buy them. Just enjoy your summer while it lasts! If you really feel eager or curious about the courses you'll be studying, perhaps look up past papers of the subjects

    Use online resources instead. Different exam boards have very similar content so it doesn't matter.

    Or look at the specifications for both exam boards, find the things that they both have in common and study that. Leave the rest for when you start sixth form.
