I suggest you get your study area sorted out, so everything you need is around you. Have a look at revision guides at the library so you know which ones to get, you can also pick them up cheaply during the summer in charity shops. I got loads that way, as long as their are the up to date 9-1 GCSEs then you'll be fine. Even the old style guides are useful for questions etc.
I'd get the stationery you'll being needing - I love this bit - like a good planner/diary, wall calendar, post it notes, pens, binders, paper, index cards. That way you wont have the expense all at once.
The most important thing is to get your mind in the right place. Think positively, reach for the high grades, but also have a work mentality with your studies and revision. From September it will be your job to work hard on your studies, revise and most importantly pass those exams.
Also as important is to eat nutritionally well, drink enough water so your not dehydrated, exercise to reduce stress, and do take time off away from studies to stop any burn out.
Take time to work out a study schedule if you can.
Basically during the summer do as much preparation you can, so you can just start energised in September. Remember it's a marathon and not a sprint, so keep it kicking over and then build gradually to a peak before the mocks. Once you have those results you can alter anything that isn't working, and then build up again to peak for the actual exams.
Good luck. You can get those high grades, just stay positive and do the work.
I think giving target grades to year 9's should be banned.It results in exactly this.Young kids thinking they are defined by them and also they can become self fulfilling prophecies!Son's grammar school never gave target grades just encouraged the students to work hard.A far more healthy approach!
