    physicsandmathstutor is great for topic by topic questions. See the first post in the thread

    Otherwise, WAHEY productions' YouTube videos are a quirky way to revise.

    If you type in PHYA4 on youtube there are some playlists already created. By 'Waheyproductions' and 'Drphysics'

    That's very true. Seems it's impossible to understand the simplest concepts in papers these days -.-


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    The simple concepts have somewhat been removed from the papers

    Yeah they're more light hearted stuff really. Is Drphysics good?

    Maybe that is the amount of details you need to know if you cannot find more on there

    I think it might be similarities/differences of gravitational/electrical fields or lens law given an example

    I don't think it will be similarities/differences between electric and gravitational fields, that came up in June 2013 didn't it?

    I am personally leaning more towards a capacitors question or a question based around further mechanics!

    Capacitors came up last year June 2014

    Oh yeah, well that was a giant fail. I did that paper as a mock back in January so completely forgot about it! cheers, saves me revising capacitors

    CD223, that is a good call, I will change my guess to further mecahnics/SHM

    Have a feeling the 6 marker will be on resonance, like an applied example such as Barton's pendulums.

    Yeah I've been thinking that for a while. Very odd it hasn't featured more in papers, although how would you think of 6+ things to say?

    I mean, if it was generally SHM resonance and then talking a bit about Barton's then I'd understand, but how can you make six plus points on that one experiment -.-

    Barton's pendulums?

    Is that part of the AQA spec?

    It's in the book I believe as an application of SHM:

    Here is a great short YouTube video that summarises what you could expect from a question.
