    Physics is not just about memorizing a bunch of stuff. Make sure you understand why things are the way they are. Only then you will be able to apply you knowledge to new situations.
    Good luck

    Although I didn't do that board, what I can say that chemguide helped me. And also with all those subjects especially physics and further maths, make you sure you actually understand what is going on rather than memorising material (which chemistry for me was more prone to). It also depends on what sort of person you are - e.g. I understood the concepts pretty quickly and how to apply them, but what would let me down would be the memory work so I made sure I remembered concepts and then from there I was okay.

    I'm going to second this comment, but in connection with maths rather than physics (because maths is the only listed subject I've taken). If you learn by rote, and get hit with a question in an unusual form or style, you'll struggle; if you understand what you're doing, you'll see what's happening, and be able to deal with it.

    Make sure you figure out exactly why you're performing each step in a solution. Gain intuition. That way, you'll get the highest scores.

    I suggest Khan Academy. For FM, the MIT youtube channel may be useful, depending on what modules you're taking.
