    If you're in year 9 think about what GCSE options you want to pick, but aside from that there's nothing specific you need to be doing - enjoy :yy:

    I didn't mean to come off as condescending.

    But generally, just enjoy school. There's no point in stressing over entrance exams, work experience, A Levels etc when you're 13.

    If you want to do preparation for later studies I would read up on some GCSE textbooks or something as these are your next big step.

    But if you think you might want to do medicine there's no harm in looking into that, but keep your mind open at your age. I'll hopefully be starting a medicine degree in October and I've changed my mind about what specialty I want to go into loads and probably will continue to do so for ages yet

    You could always pick up a couple of books about it, that aren't too complex, if you really want to find out about more anything specific.

    As said above though, I would focus on your KS3 studies for now, but there's no harm in having an interest or a goal to work towards.

    There are some popular neuroscience books that are very interesting - read those.

    Also, don't plug for neurosurgery specifically until at you're least in med school or you sound naive.
