    Yes, if Physics is taught poorly, it's incredibly difficult. I'd suggest googling 'Physics for Beginners' (http://physics.webplasma.com/physicstoc.html looks like a good start), and finding some explanations you can understand. My physics teacher's been away on maternity leave, so I'm finding it difficult too. The CGP revision guide is also very good.

    For physics to get a good grade all you seem to have to do is memorise all the equations. So long as you can remember them and plug numbers in to them you should be fine!

    Physics is evil (I do A2 and hate every moment of it). It helps if you know formulas as many questions on Physic peapers are calculations. It may also help if you read different text book as it may help to understand when principles are explained in different way. Most importantly do as many past peapers as you can. I do not know about GSCE but for A level you need much lower grade boundaries in Physic for an A (in raw score), on some peapers it is enough to get 60% for an A.
