Do I need to revise over the summer for it? And how big of a step is it from GCSE to A-Level? I did AQA.
Any advice for revision?

Hi, me again!

What is so important for you to learn in German? the grammar and vocabularies? in the latter case, I recommend you to learn this part of foreign language being surrounded with German when you listen to German musics, watching German films, etc. If they are special terms, create your own sentences with the vocabularies to grasp the meaning. For this method, you can use revision cards with explanations of the word. Almost the same goes for grammar. Create sentences in which the importance of grammar is very clear to understand.

Are you planning to improve pronounciation and being more fluent in German? if so, use a mirror and soliloquize. This practice is a good one where you can check yourself.

Measured by the foreign language level, I think that Getman at A level is at B1 or even B2, so at higher basics or even at advanced level. GCSE must be at A2 up to B1. That is about basics and higher basics.

Whatever you do, use even your spare time in sumner to get better. An hour or two a day is the time I recommend you.

If you are really so focused on to learn German all over, I even advice you going to Germany to talk with Germans around you. And don't worry! if you are insecure, you can switch to your native language. Most of Germans are able to make conversations in English, as it is a compulsory language in our education.
