what are you realistically aiming for? i actually am retaking physics after getting a B last year. I'm on AQA. its just pure knowledge and be adept at maths. read read read. loads of practice questions. make sure you understand the stuff. the 'i dont get it but will memorise an answer' method isnt good enough. as questions phrased differently need slightly different answers. also with physics marks are sometimes given for including a special word or phrase in your explanation, so know what these are.

good luck

watch all the "dr physics A" videos on youtube!!!! - he has them on virtually every a level physics topic and they r awesome!!
also, get the cgp book, do as many past papers as poassible and memorise answers to popular exam questions!!!
good luck!

Thank you I am aiming for an A I'm doing Physics B on AQA, is that what you're doing? I just find that the exam questions are all worded weirdly which makes it hard because I understand the topics :/
