Maybe look at getting yourself organised? Perhaps get the specifications printed off and create checklists so you can monitor your progress once you start. If you wanted to learn any content, maybe look at what topics clash with GCSE and brush up on these so you have the best base as possible

Honestly, nothing.. Just relax and enjoy your holidays, you just did your GCSEs, so thats the least you can do right now... Just buy a relevant book close to September (the one endorsed by OCR is actulally pretty good).

Thank you very much!
I think this book is a really good start! -

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Chemistry-I...y+Need+to+Know

I have read the one in this same series of books for Biology, and despite being half way through a Biology degree it was really nice to recap some really basic (yet very important) topics such as evolution, genetics etc.

Having a good grasp of the basic areas of chemistry will help you understand the more complex content, while also preventing you keep looking at your GCSE notes and consulting the internet all the time! Although that's not a bad thing either..
