OCR B Physics AS... anyone else think the text book is totally irrelevant?Watch this thread
I am thinking about dropping at physics AS as I find it extremely boring (Topics such as Sensing and Materials). I should be getting an A at AS Physics but the books brags on, and I cant distinguish between the bits that I need to learn and understand and the irrelevant info. (for the exam). I am so confused!! Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. (Does anyone know a successful method in revising the topics? Like the yellow boxes in the text book?)!
The textbook is bad, I'll warrant that, But you do coursework, and so one less module at the end of summer. So its allright I think.
The course is badly designed. (even though my head of Physics-Phil Britton designed the course) But whos to complain? The universities see it as any other exam, but I see it as more-general knowledge than anything else.
My physics t4eacher guessed that you can probably score around 60% without any physics knowledge at all. That is worrying.
Consider youself lucky that it is a doss exam board and so maximise your advantage and get better marks in otehr subjects.
heh heh heh, that was definitely my easiest A, partly due to my interest in physics, partly due to the exam being so "good". stay in there h_cube.
You only have partial interest in physics? Yet you are doing a degree in it. The irony...
