Honestly I wouldn't say there's any need to! I did OCR Biology at GCSE and then AQA at A level (so different topics were covered) and I found the start fine without recapping. However if you do want to get a jump start, check the specification for the course to see what you'll be learning to direct your study towards that. It's all nicely bullet pointed out in the different topic areas so easy to understand.

For my GCSE (which were cancelled due to Covid) were mostly AQA, but I'm not sure on A-levels, it might be AQA again I think.

From the GCSE spec, it overlaps roughly with Cells, Organisation, Inheritance, variation and evolution, Bioenergetics Homeostasis and response
