Notes which help me do every question i can find + past papers.

Trust me, questions are the best way to revise, as they actually get your brain working and engaged.

its just practice.

the more often you use something. the more likely you are to remember it. i can read over notes for ever and nothing will sink in. but actually applying the information over and over again (usually in the form of questions) definitely helps loads

i was s**t at chem and i survived by copying what i'd learnt that day in the evening, helped jog my memory and makes wayy more sense reading things second/third time round. take the time to try and properly understand it then it'll all become much easier come exam time

didn't like past papers though - they just scared me

I always read the textbook and when I was revising for exams I did all the exam style questions in the book and as many past papers as I could find

Physics.
Asubject that consists almost totally of abstract mathematics and theory that are nigh on impossible to put to use in the real world?

Thats right, impossible to put to use. Only if you are forgetting nigh on every technological/engineering advancement.

Chemists/electronic engineers can do that and much more besides.

Past papers until you get bored and can recite the definitions word perfect. Thats what we ended up doing. Still doing it for A2.

I also did posters. Usually I do a neat one for most bits, then will do quick, messy ones just to see what I remember.

I guess you are a physicist which would explain why you find it hard to put your thoughts into words. Try using some mathematical equations instead...

In all seriousness, give me a sentence that is correct as a replacement?

engineers use physics....

it controls absolutely everything.

Engineers apply some physics and mathematics to real world problems, yes. Do a physics degree and try to find a job with it afterwards (except teaching).
