    Not at A-Level it isn't mate!

    GCSE Physics: the focus is on language (I mean writing and concepts and explainign)
    A-Level Physics: the focus is on Maths, loads of Higher Level Maths ****.

    Trut me I know. I am doing Physics A-Level atm. Have done G491 for OCR B spec. So 30% of it.
    thank god, i would love physics so much more if the focus at A-Level is on maths!

    It's all lies, as physics is like 90 percent words and 10 percent maths.:rolleyes:
    This is incorrect. You definitely need a solid base of Maths to be able to do well in A-Level Physics. An example: you need Calculus, which is beyond GCSE level. You're by going to do well in physics if you're a bad mathematician.

    It gets a lot more mathematical anyway GCSE is just gaining the basic knowledge and understanding of physical concepts. A-Level is applying it with Mathematics (along with a few new concepts).

    Hello! Welcome to the year 11 thread
    Actually A-Level is a lot of new concepts, and a load of maths. The content is very similar to triple but very little which is similar to core and additional.

    Basically once you get to 500 pages in a thread the moderators have to close the thread as it is too much for one thread and so we make ourselves a new thread. This has happened to us before, hence why we moved to Mark II, and when Mark II got to 500 we had to make a new one as it is easier for the site really with storage capacity and whatnot. Stops it from getting cluttered as well!

    How much revision a day are you all doing?

    I am currently aiming at 5-7 Hours a day - Making Powerpoints, Summary Notes, Past Papers.. Roughly working on the basis of 30 minutes per exam per day, and with 14 exams to revise for (Excl. German) that is 7 hours.. too much or?

    I'm doing Conflict aswell. Nah AQA for the sciences. Yeah same I got German on the 27th June also. How have ypu done in the controlled assessments for German?

    This was posted from The Student Room's Android App on my Orange Monte Carlo
    Woohoo! I HATE CONFLICT WITH ALL MY HEART! actually i exaggerate, it's not that bad but i still don't enjoy it. Lucky, I do Edexcel for physics and chemistry and CIE IGCSE for biology- Kills me! Uhmm we haven't been told properly but I think i'm on around A for Controlled Assessment. how did you do in them?
