Hey so i 'm taking the additional science and i need to achieve at least an A so that i can take physics for my A levels. The entry requirement to take physics is to get an A in additional science .Does anyone have any revision notes or tips to get an A or A*. Please. Thank you in advance to every one who helps me.

know how to answer questions from the mark scheme,

its only key words that count in your marks

e.g if you were asked about how the velocity and acceleration differs from a man falling off a plane:

the word "terminal velocity" = 1 mark

something along the lines of "gravity intitially higher than air resistance"

you know what i mean

and do lots of past papers

i got an A for Additional and core physics at gcse,

When I did additional science GCSE, one of the thing I found very helpful was the revision guide that OCR produce. I think it's about £10 and covers all of the modules. The day before each exam, I spent about six hours going through the entire syllabus and doing (hard) past paper questions.

I ended up with an A* for Additional Science (100% marks for two of the exams), and I've just finished Physics AS with an A.

One of the things I'd suggest you work on is the six mark questions - you should get 6/6 all the time if you want an A*.

If you intend to do OCR Physics A level, another very useful thing to do in preparation is to make sure you know the circuits module (P5 if I remember) like the back of you're hand!

Hope this helps and good luck!

Definitely past papers (if you run out use exam boards that cover similar modules). Time yourself doing them and mark them harshly - the examiner you get might be really strict.
