I'm going to Cuba for 2 weeks in easter 2017, will this be risky since my As level exams are the month after? I will be able to take revision materials but it won't be as good quality revision as I'd be able to do at home.

Its probably not the best idea, but if you start revision early and get all your notes completed before you go then you can just do past papers and practice questions on holiday which will be much easier.

Yes of course it is stupid. This is the rest of your life.

I had a two week holiday during easter before my AS exams and got 4A's. That said, would i recommend everyone do the same? No. In my case, i began revising in december and felt confident. Also revised during my holiday. In short, yes it is risky but how big a risk it will be, depends on how early you start revision and how confident you feel with the material.
