    This is the hardest challenge for me so far, I'm finding Maths, Biology and Chemistry fairly straightforward but Physics on the other hand is not.

    It's not the it's difficult or anything - I understand it all, but when say... diagrams aren't in the way I've learnt or there is a value missing which you're expected to spot quiet quickly, I just have a complete block.

    Did my internal exams, probably AAAE next week.
    If you're doing well at maths and like sciences chances are you will find Physics fine, probably the reason behind you blanking in certain circumstances is due to a gap in your knowledge of the subjects so you should probably try go over some basic GCSE stuff and what you're doing in class at the moment.

    Also, don't worry about internal exams - They are hardly related to the real thing. I know people who failed their internals yet two months later got pretty decent marks (As and Bs)

    Physics was one of my highest GCSE grades (%) funnily enough. :|

    The maths in physics will be a bit of a pain in the arse to learn unless you've done mechanics.

    Try getting an AQA M1 revision guide and using that - I've found they explain things in a simpler way than physics books (which are always too wordy in my opinion).

    Any advice? Like for vector diagrams and those to do with moments.
    learn the concepts thoroughly, not just what the textbook (especially if you're doing AQA physics) says. If you properly understand it then you will be able to follow through whenever a question is asked in a different way.
