It's summer! Some of us are lucky to have had a month or two, some only a few days, but hopefully it's the holidays for everyone studying by now!

How much are you going to do over the summer? Just your homework on the last day, or a bit more?

Personally I have a couple of essays I need to do and then I'll catch up on bits I missed earlier in the year, I don't know if I'll get any further though! Whatever you do or don't do, remember to have a break too

This is TSR, who wouldn't be studying.

My plan for summer:

Learn Python (94% done)
Re-learn JavaScript (10% done)
Learn Ruby (0%)
Learn MATLAB (0%)

Start learning first year content (20%)

Have a good break too! Don't be burnt out before you go back. That's not a ridiculous amount but yeah

This is true but you're busy! Computer scientist by any chance?

You deserve that! You can't be the only one in that. Plans for next year?

Well I've got a little bit of note taking to do which is for Chemistry homework and I'll probably look at second year content nearer the end of the holidays. Other than that I've got to revise for my UKCAT (29th August.)

Ooh cool! Sure you will- I almost went to Exeter for a different subject, and am now doing psychology but somewhere else funnily enough thank you!

I won't be doing any form of studying because if I don't get into my firm it will be pointless :lol:
Will go over C1 If I manage to get in as I need to catch up on the maths as my course is quite mathematical yet I don't have a level maths.

is it possible to learn C1 in a month and maybe a little of C2? - Would I have to spend a lot of time each day in order to do so?

Well I start Uni in September for Psychology
- Unconditional offer
- Plus I already know I got an A for health and social!

Received my online enrollment email, which has all the reading material!
I spoke to the course leaders too and was able to confirm that the list wouldn't be changing.
So I've started reading the books already

It helps that the first year is similar to A level as well

I received fairly average grades in most subjects this year, aswell as doing quite well in my strongest subjects, so I'm not too worried about doing a lot of revision this summer. But I will be doing a little bit so I can finish my notes and catch up with key points that I didn't manage to understand throughout the school year. Year 11 is bound to be stressful if I don't work hard enough but I have an entire summer to prepare for it so I'm not too anxious about it!

This is great, well done!! Yeah psychology is very similar content-wise, they just expect you to do more with it. But you'll learn that, you're in a good position already by the sound of it!

Good you have plenty of time then! But keeping up with things is good.

This sounds good! Especially trying to make sure you understand everything, that's always good before you start building on it. But a break is probably the best thing you can do! Good luck

It's really up to you! You could always aim to do a little bit each day and see where you get, and alternate subjects or something. Then even by the time you've missed a few days you'll still have a fair amount done!

There's always other places! But I can understand the feeling. It really depends what your maths level is like now, but C1 isn't much harder than GCSE really. It's A2 that starts getting harder! So you should be okay

I'm not sure whether I count in this poll since I'm going into my third year of uni I've been doing a fair amount of work over the summer though; for my degree I need to complete a five week geological mapping project plus a special research project, of which I've done 2 weeks so far (prior to that I went on a 2 week field trip to the western USA which involved a lot of coursework, worth 40% of that module). I've got 3 weeks of mapping left, then I need to start preparing for my other third year modules. Fun times
