    I didn't study it in depth because it wasn't relevant to me, but still.
    I know what it feels like to have to study 'irrelevant' stuff, but as long as it helps you get the grade you want in your A level, it's entirely relevant

    Ask around your college i bet people have the same, if not lower, marks than you

    most people found it quite hard, but they're are cleaver in physics. I might have even got lower than those marks to be honest because i can't even remember half of the questions. once the exam finished everyone looked at each other like what the **** was that.

    Probably like 30/60 but that's at a push so I'm gonna have to resit next year since I'm applying to Oxford to read chemistry so need a high grade in Physics - I felt this exam went awfully!! :/

    If you go about it the right way from the start of the year I see no reason why not.

    Its just I'm set on applying to Oxford to read Chemistry and am predicted A*AA for A2. Also I'm disabled (partially sighted) and feel strongly that had a major part to play in my poor physics grade (C) should I tell the universities this as its an extenuating circumstance? :/ I'm gonna resit g491 do you think that's enough to get an A at A2?
