revise year 12 content throughout the year and email teachers to find time when you are both free so they can explain things to you that you dont understand.

Year 13 is easier than Year 12 (Don't @ me).

Year 13 is basically Year 12, just slightly more applied and slightly harder content.

Oh and start revising in November.

I probably should have worded it better:

The jump from GCSE ---------> Y12 is greater than the jump from Y12 --------------> Y13.

The content get's harder and they expect you to apply it more however, all the concepts and revision methods you used in Y12 (if it works) shall ensure you'll be fine in Y13.
So whilst the content is harder in Y13, relative to how the Y12 content felt fresh from GCSE; Y13 is easier.

As bulletzone said, year 13 IS easier. Because you're more settled in..you'll be used to sixth form and how it works.

Learn from your mistakes in year 12. That's easier to do if you screwed up your grades, especially. Fix those mistakes, and improve your revision technique. Also prepare to make sacrifices if you want to do REALLY well. By sacrifices, I mean less social time, more work..etc

Even if you did well in year 12, make sure to solidify on that and maintain those high standards (which is arguably harder than growing better from bad grades).

Also, start research Unis AS EARLY as possible (or whatever else you're planning to do after year 13, the earlier the better). Get some idea of what personal statements involve and what subject you'd like to study. Although hopefully, you'll already have an idea.

Finally try to enjoy yourself. I didn't particularaly like year 13 myself, but it sure was a lot better than 12

I think that the jump from year 11 to 12 is very easy, but year 12 to 13 is harder. In year 13 keep on top of your work.

start uni research early and apply by the initial deadline even if your not 100% sure as your not tied into anything. also go to lessons and don't skip (from experience skipping every friday period 1 geography for 3 months means you miss a lot of content 🤷*♂️)

Identify your y12 weak points and how you're going to solve that. Be realistic with your changes and practice them a bit thorugh lockdown. E.g. refine how you take notes or how you're going to pre-learn content. Read textbooks before you start the year if possible too.

Do as many practice questions as possible. After covering a topic do all practice questions you can find for that topic, creating flashcards is also good idea for some subjects so create them as you are covering topics and review them continuously.
