    Hi

    I haven't seen any thread made for Edexcel Physics Unit 4, so thought of making one so that can we can discuss our doubts and share important notes/tips here.

    Anyways, since the exam is less than a month away. How's everyone's preparation going?

    Personally, I find Unit 5 much better than Unit 4 at the moment.

    Hmmm. . . Ok. Print out the syllabus and revise according to that from the textbook. Make flash cards for the really important stuff! And if you have the guide then it'll be of great help! And most importantly, do the past papers! ! !
    All the best!

    *Revision notes, just take a print out of the syllabus and learn everything from the textbook/revision guide according to syllabus-making sure that everything is covered.
    *Make flash cards for the really important stuff so that you can go through them a day before exam & before going to your centre to give the exam.
    *MOST IMPORTANT: PAST PAPERS. Time yourself while doing the papers and correct yourself and find your area of weakness and put extra effort into that. If you are done with the new syllabus papers then practice the old papers for extra practice.

    Good luck!

    To those who don't have the Edexcel A2 Physics Revision Guide.
    You can download them from here:

    (all thanks to M-H & saadmannan from SF)


    Personally, I find it really helpful and the topics are explained briefly to the point (required according to our syllabus). It also has practice questions which are really good.

    Me neither. I need to throughly revise the theory and principles behind everything. Recently, all the past papers I've done consists of 60% theory which is annoying.... I like maths =[
