gap year after GCSE now going to Alevel

I took a gap year due to my health condition.
I am going back in September.
I met the teachers and they told me to revise bio, chem, maths and religious studies or phycology. The sciences are OCR, maths and phycology AQA.
How do I start to revise these subjects and do you have any advice that can help me?
ps. I have 20 days left
do you have any advice on how to ease into revision again.

What A level subjects are you going to do?
And did you do these subjects at GCSE level?

To prepare for your a levels you should look at the syllabus of each subject (bio,chem and maths) and then start to learn the topics either by watching videos or by reading online notes

For Maths I'd do a few GCSE papers and look at these:

Then go back over GCSE notes or textbooks, read and just re-familiarise yourself with the material - Maths in particular as that is the one where basic 'skills' will have dropped off over your gap year.
