    Indeed that was a nightmarish paper
    I hope they don't make a mess of the 2013 June papers.

    Do all the past papers and make sure you fully understand everything in one paper before moving to the next one
    I tend to learn things parrot-fashion (mostly definitions and key points)

    The thing is; I seem to understand it, either without any help, or by checking for a key term.. However, when I come across some new exam questions, it all looks familiar, although I don't seem to get anywhere near 100% overall

    I'd say the best thing to do is as many past papers as you can. Once you've done one, look over the mark scheme particularly at the written questions. Certain words in exams tend to trigger the same answer. If its about the work function, 9 times out of 10 by saying "Work function is the minimum amount of energy required by a photon to displace a single electron from the surface of metal. Work Function is a constant, depending on the type of metal." Will get you every mark for example. I'm doing it right now for my particle-wave theory.

    This method helped me get a high B in January. Hopefully I'll get an A in this one.

    In unit 2, I'd say waves will be my downfall... just too vague to picture.. and definitions.. need to be specific on those... will have to revisit unit 1 definitions again soon..

    Can't stand electricity! So boring and tedious. Waves and Light are actually fun and very interesting to learn/revise.

    Same. I've slowed down on Unit 2 revision because of my other exams closer ahead. Will start it up again midweek next week.
