    What regrets do you have from year 13? If you could go back, what would you do differently? Would you have started revision earlier? Should you go over yr12 content during the summer holidays?
    I'm just finishing year 12 so would really appreciate any advice on year 13 & A2s etc.

    Of course you should stay on top of Y12 content, doing small amounts of revision consistently. However, for me my main regret is not enjoying my time enough. Make sure you spend time with your friends over the summer and make some great memories, because the chances are a lot of you will be moving away to uni in little over a year!

    Make a timetable starting from day 1. I'd say at the end of every week, make a timetable for what you want to achieve by the end of next week.

    Do revision based off goals, not time (you can spend 10 hours on your bum pretending to revise just to make you feel better)

    Keep on top of stuff (including AS) throughout the year.

    Not challenging myself enough (doesn't help when you start revision too late because you can't even do the core stuff, nevermind challenge yourself).
