I am going to begin my A-levels in September and I want to achieve A*'s in my subjects In order to do that I need to be prepared/organised and stuff. Any Ideas of what to do during Summer to prepare and tips during A levels themselves

What subjects? And there's no need to do anything in summer, just chill cause it's the longest break you'll have until after you're A-levels have finished.

Maybe do a bit of pre reading into the subjects you want to do. By that I mean start learning the content you'll be learning next year. DO NOT GRIND! Spend minimal time doing this as this is your summer holiday. What subjects are you taking?

It's a good idea to do a bit of pre-reading on your subjects before you start and it's best if you start revising right from the beginning of the year (in September) to ensure you don't have to try to cram everything in just before the exams.

Sure, do some prereading in the summer, but there's nothing much you can really do because you won't know what your a levels are like/how much work they require until you start doing them. So relax! You'll get an a* at a level by working hard throughout the year, reading around your subject, revising for mocks and constantly consolidating content, not by filling up your summer with work. You've probably had a really exhausting exam season and deserve a break.

When sitting your A level exam papers, just don't get many questions wrong.

A* is guaranteed.

Ditto. Don't stress yourself out. You've just finished your GCSEs which at the time are pretty stressful. When you get to college time will pass exponentially and you'll be shocked when it comes to exams. So please take this break. I'd say get a nice good summer job to take your mind of things but to also get some experience under your belt.

When you do get to college, I suggest (this is what I hope to do in year 13) you pre-read before lessons so you go into the lesson with an idea of what you'll be learning. This way you can ask for help in lessons about things you really don't understand instead of trying to understand the concept in the class and going away feeling confused. That was the biggest mistake for me for Chemistry and Physics. Thankfully I'm sitting the linear specification so I have time to get myself sorted out before September.
