Don’t think about your results
First of all, don’t think about your results. Whether you passed with all the colours of the rainbow or missed the grades by a mile, don’t think about your results again for a while. Make the most of your summer before you go back to school.
While you were revising chances are that catching up with your favourite TV shows or watching the latest movies weren’t exactly your top priority. So now results day has been and gone, why not catch up with everything you’ve missed, wanted to watch, not really fussed about watching or already watched but want to watch again (it’s worked for Friends for the last ten years). Have a PJ day, or two, or three...or seven.
Go on an adventure
Whether it’s a week away with friends, a weekend in Brighton or just a day out to your local park, go out and have an actual adventure with your friends. Pretending you’re a member of the Famous Five (complete with ginger beer, picnic and a selfie stick) with your friends means you’ll be making the most of your summer freedom.
The stress of exams no doubt didn’t do wonders for your sleeping patterns, so make you catch up on your zzzzs. Ok your parents might not be completely happy about you rolling out of bed at 11am, but in a few weeks the alarm will be telling you to get up early anyway, so nap away!
Get a job
Want to start adding some
work experience to your CV? Or more importantly, money in your currently empty piggy bank? Now has never been a better time. With exam results to your name, and the busy summer period upon us, many employers will be desperate for staff just like you. You’ll get work experience, make friends, and more importantly can have some wonga in your pocket to buy things you don’t actually need.
Start preparing for Year 13
To make sure you aren’t running around like a blindfolded duck the night before you go back to sixth form, it’s worth starting to prepare for year 13 gradually. Start now and it’ll be a small task rather than a huge chore the day before.
Got reading to do? Read a chapter a night. Bag falling apart? Might be time to buy one that doesn’t empty all your stationary onto the road now. Have no stationary anyway? Probably should sort that out too...
Begin looking at unis
Choosing universities can seem like a daunting task, so the sooner you start looking at options and courses, the less scary it’ll be. Even if you end up with a list longer than your actual height, at least you’ll have some options to start thinking about at the start of Y13.
