Is there a reason why you think you can't?

Rather than waiting for someone to tell you if you can or cannot do something, just get on and do it.

"Catching up on all the work" is quite an open and difficult goal. There's a risk that if you set this goal for yourself, you'll struggle to build up the motivation to even start the work everyday. I know that personally, if I set a really big goal like that, I end up not starting it at all. That may not be what you're like at all, and in that case, go ahead.

However, what might be a more realistic goal would be to select a few subjects you consider the most essential and focus on those. Then, set a reasonable goal of how many hours you will spend a day doing work. Perhaps 3-4 hours per day is realistic. You can still do extra if you get in the swing of things, but having a realistic goal will make you more likely to achieve it.

At this point, even if you don't catch-up before school starts again, you're still likely to have time to continue catching up during the school year, but you don't want to burn yourself out before the school year has even started. You won't be the only person who's not done any work, but at the same time, if you'd like to continue being a high achieving students, it's going to be important that you consistently do a bit of extra work til you've caught up.

Then it sounds like you've already made the decision, and whatever we tell you won't matter.

It's unclear how much work you have missed, but at some point you'll need to start doing it. It doesn't necessarily matter if you haven't caught up with everything by the time you start Year 10, it matters if you know it when the exams come around. The sooner you start, the sooner you'll catch up. The longer you leave it, the more it'll build up and the harder it'll be to catch up.

Nobody knows the answer to that except your teachers.

My biggest piece of advice would be that now you've had some advice, that you get started on doing the work rather than lingering on TSR. Talking about doing the work can often be the biggest barrier to actually doing the work. Just pick a subject, perhaps one you like, go and find the work that was set during lockdown for that subject and have a look through it. Pick a piece of work that looks achievable within an hour or two, and have a go at doing that today. You'll feel miles better once you've just done that, and no TSR thread will provide you the same level of reassurance as actually going and doing a bit of the work.

I would recommend using sceneca learning, specific websites e.g. my maths , method maths and mathwatch for maths , bullet pointing previous work you have done to make it easier to read and instead of just reading over your notes actively revise. Make a quiz on them , learn the formulas e.t.c as this will so much more beneficial then just reading it. I would also turn off all devices whilst doing this as it will allow you to fully concentrate.

Whatever you do, don’t let it be staying up till 6am sleeping for 5 hours and then going to work again. It works but absolutely sucks

Sorry, why are you not using the work your teachers have set? If you want to catch up to where the school expects you to be, that is exactly the work you should be looking at and doing!
