    Three sciences and maths!- tough combo, but many people do it....
    If you did edexcel higher tier then the maths should be alright, as it starts off pretty straightforward.
    I also do physics, and don't remember preparing for it at all, but I did fine in the end. As you said though, maybe it's a good idea to brush up a bit before you get back.....
    I'm doing art aswell... Couldn't give it up, love it too much!

    I did edexcel higher tier, but yeah i'm gonna brush up, not for a couple of weeks though cos I'm doing work experience atm and when that's finished I'm going on holiday

    wow, art as well! i guess you know what you've let yourself in for (presuming you did take it for gcse)....
    hehe, you're doing the same as me, although i've already done 1 of my 2 weeks of work experience at Synthomer Ltd...where are you working?

    Just doing the work that youre set in the first week will brush up your skills enough. I started A level maths without knowing any GCSE stuff anyway, so couldnt brush up on anything.

    Everything you learnt at GCSE about Chemistry and physics is wrong, and youll be told that when you start A levels, so dont bother brushing up on that.

    Biology doesnt need any GCSE knowledge either..

    Most of your subjects wont require any GCSE knowledge basically, so there really is no point in revising it..

    You really should make the most of your breaks, this time next year youll be gagging for a week or two without any work..

    smash hits- sounds very impressive...you know what you're gonna be doing there?
    some parts of india are quite nice (not where i'm going though )
    germany should be good...i've never been on holiday in europe (only a stupid one day trip to france)...we always go to india and sri lanka, and we've been to australia, singapore and malaysia a couple times....
