Should I be studying over summer? I'm in the final year, and am going to be thrown right into school again on 7.09.16. What should I be doing? Going over all topics? And looking ahead

Yeah you should!! I'd use to time to catch up on topics you missed out over the year and topics you're not good on and then look 2-3 months ahead :)

I've always been horrible in school, I've repeated 2 grades already and just starting high school this year. This summer and last summer I had a tutor 2 days a week. It sucked. When it was nice out, I did school work, when my friends went on vacation or summer camp, I had school work.

But ya know what? School is a lot better, I've caught up, getting good grades, and I'm actually starting to like it. Last year was a lot easier, better, cause I was doing better in school, better grades, not in so much trouble and made some new friends cause I was t so much of an asshole.


So if a tutor helped that, then yeah, I would

Do you know what topics will be coming up at school this year/exam schedules and that sorta stuff? It might be worth just doing a bit of reading up on the topics you know of and prepare yourself for whats coming this year. Maybe have a word with someone a bit older than you so you have a bit more experience to go on?

Study the topics that you struggle in, and if there aren't any significant weak points just do a brushing-up before the year starts. That way, you aren't thrown in shock. If you have a friend(s) nearby you can study with, that would be great to motivate you and make it less tedious (after all, it's summer--who WANTS to study? xD).

Youve got a nice bit of time in summer. So why not? Atleast work on the subjects/topics youre weak at.

I agree that you should probably read briefly about the classes you will be taking this coming year. Brushing up on what you have learned in the past is a good idea, but sometimes doesn't prepare you if your classes aren't related as much. I wouldn't suggest reading a whole book, but maybe skim through a few of the chapters (this actually only takes a few minutes).

I personally find if summer is for anything it's not studying. It's a vacation, you shouldn't be stressing out over school already! However if the school you go to tends to jump into new material right away instead of like a day or two of review like my school does then it might be a good idea just to go over material from last year in the classes you had trouble in.
