    Past papers, past papers and more past papers. If you can't do a question try and read up on the topic more and then later attempt the question again. If you still can't do it check the mark scheme as well as the examiners' report (just to see where everyone else usually goes wrong). Then try and find a similar question in another past paper and see if you can give it a go.

    I did pretty much this and nothing else and managed to get high a's for every maths exam lol
    lol. Ill definitely do that! thank you!

    Is S2 much easier than M1 which is why your suggesting that? I may have a go at that.
    But tbh I hated s1 and I found it the easiest.

    Is m1 much harder than what we did in AS physics?
    You should be fine if you did AS physics..

    In my view, yes. In some ways, S2 is easier than S1. S1 covers all sorts of weird things but S2 feels more standard.

    M1 on the other hand, I've seen people struggle despite being taught. It is more difficult than AS Physics mechanics stuff, yes, though a lot of the topics are very similar.
    Well crap. That is not comforting at all

    I didn't know you studied Maths :lol:

    It's not as difficult as I make it out to be but if you don't care about maths or don't put enough practice into it then there is little point in doing M1. Don't get me wrong though, I think S2 is easier but if you're taught M1 and you actually keep on top of it it shouldn't be too bad.

    :rofl: :doh: :getmecoat:

    Exactly yeah, and whilst you'll probably have seen a fair bit of it in Physics it's kind of easier to learn it in maths because you can practice more.

    I became more pro active and aimed to be ahead of school in all subjects, maths lots of papers i recommend. Bio i recommend understanding and not memorising as understanding means easier recall of information.
