Every summer i never do much and i get insanely bored (my fault) - i've never been able to come up with something...one of my friends suggested we could go camping because we live near the countryside, and there are a bunch of sandy beaches. Any ideas other than hanging in a field for 11 weeks or getting sand in my shoes that will stay for the next 2 years? Thanks!! :>

Have you thought about NCS? Stops the boredom for 4 weeks and you'll pick up some good skills along the way too. There might still be some spaces left on a programme near you, and you can often bring a friend too. Something to think about.

I'm going to learn to cook. I don't normally have time. My Mum is giving me a food budget and I am doing all of the shopping and cooking. I also have 2 work experience weeks (I am not doing the cooking on those weeks).

Might be worth speaking to NCS via their website and seeing if a place has become available, they'll be keen to fill the programmes. Even better if you could speak to the delivery provider directly, ask your mates if they'e got a contact number. It's worth it imo.

It might be too late to apply for NCS, but maybe you can find a company you're interested in and apply for work experience there? It may not be the most entertaining of things, but it'll be a great thing to put on your CV. Or you could get a proper job over summer if you wanna earn some extra cash! If you're worried that you're just going to be at home all summer, maybe try out some new hobbies! Teach yourself a new skill - you might love it, and who knows, it might help you in later life somehow too Enjoy your summer, and remember to relax too!

Get a job, go to Festivals, start reading A Level course books - the jump to A level is much bigger thsn anyone expects.

Only do NCS if you want something to fill your time, and definitely NOT just for the certificate at the end as I did.

It's absolutely worthless, it got a passing mention on my personal statement and I was asked about it precisely 0 times for the (imo horrible) 4 weeks I forced myself through. Week one and two are alright, but week three and four could easily be merged into one and are an absolute pain if you have a crap group like I did.

Looking back I should have just stayed home and spent those four weeks doing something I enjoyed before A-levels took over my life.
