i do psychology and maths- i didn't really prep for psychology, maths i only did a bit where just went over gcse algebra concepts and some of the grade 9 stuff. most schools won't expect you to be prepping loads so don't worry too much about it.

I’ll probably go over grade 8/9 concepts to help prepare myself then, my school have given me summer projects for biology and psychology which is useful but I’m not really sure if they’re worth doing.

I'm in year 12 atm (year 13 in September) and I do psychology.
You don't need to prepare in advance for Psychology.
There is a lot of content though once you do get into it. Start making flashcards/revision notes from mid year 12. I regret not doing this as I've fallen behind.

I’ll take note of that then, I don’t want to fall behind so thank you for the advice!

Biology is difficult and a living hell, psychology is really easy though if you're logical when it comes to exam questions and it's just factual recall so if you revise then you'll do well

Our students get a booklet of maths prep to do which is marked before they are confirmed on the course.

I wish my school did that because all I’ve been given is given advice to go over gcse content, the specification and what parts to focus on over the summer

It might be worth googling 'preparing for A level maths' and you will find some worksheets from other schools. [TES is free to register]
