Hey.

So I'll be honest, the last few months have been pretty hectic & out of the ordinary.

To keep it short, I haven't been in mainstream education since December last year and I will not be returning until I start at college in September.

The year 11s in my school are leaving at the end of May (at the same time as the half term break) and so therefore a judgement has been made that I don't return for those few weeks before & get a head start on what I'm doing at A-Level.

The problem is, I'm unsure what I should do. I've found some videos on YouTube & I'm taking notes but other than that it's been difficult to find much else.

I'm taking history, psychology and politics - if there is any advice you could give surrounding prep work for college or just any general tips they'd be hugely appreciated.

George

AQA, though history & politics are both Edexcel (in case others ask the same question!)

i am currently studying AS level AQA psychology (and will be doing the A2 content starting september.) i have currently completed studying approaches (apart from humanistic and psychodynamic but i have a general understanding of them anyway), social influence, memory, the research methods content for AS. i am half way though studying attachment and ive just started biopsychology. I am an A grade student thus far in psychology, so i would be more than happy to help you in your prep for officially starting the A level in september!
i would also highly recommend buying the textbook (either double check which one your school/college would like you to buy or just buy the newest edition second hand) as that is a really good starting point when it comes to getting your head around the topics due to the lay out of it

to be honest, id say enjoy the break as there won't be such a long one until after a levels. I would ask the school about the textbook as some have them online so you may not want to pay for it just yet. Id say read about the bits of the subjects you're doing that really interest you.

Take the time for yourself and try not to get too stressed out by being ahead in a level by the time you start - the teachers are there to teach you.
