    I'm in year 12. I'm feeling fairly confident with my subjects at the moment (maths, further maths, physics, and CS). Just need more practice with questions.

    I'm trying to get the best grades for my mocks (which are 2 weeks after winter break), but I'm not exactly sure how much of my winter break I should spend for preparing for mocks (I will obviously do a lot of work but I am a little worried that trips may make it difficult for me to do work in a proper environment).

    I imagine I could take a few days off to go skiing to a place a little far, but in my country (where I can still do some work).
    I have 3 weeks so I imagine it shouldn't be that much of a big deal, but I'm not sure if it's worth it.

    What do you guys think?

    Personally, I would. You need time for yourself to relax away from your school work. Once you've cleared your mind and come back from your trip, you can then begin to revise for your mocks. You'll be a lot more productive that way.

    And good luck for your mocks!!
