Hi. I'm studying GCSE Triple Science and my Physics teacher is pretty bad so I'm not getting the grades I want to. Do you know of any resources which could aid me in revision for Physics except the obvious of a revision guide? Thanks

What exam board are you on? Personally I did AQA and found that reading from revision guides(CGP) is enough for the learning part(some may say textbooks are good to have but I didn't need them).
Then for practicing do lots of past papers. I also made flashcards with things to remember like definitions or the stages of convection.
I found this website, it looks good: www.animatedscience.co.uk/p123-revision

I got 3A* for all 3 sciences so it worked for me, however it may not for you. Try to find what helps you learn. Good luck!

Yes I'm on AQA too. I don't have the GCP books. Do you advise getting specific exam board books?

I had 3 CGP revision guides - one for every science, and they were great. I bought them from my school, maybe yours sells them too. If not, you can always buy them on the internet. They were specific to AQA which is good cause there's no point learning stuff for other exam boards you don't need to know!
I also forgot to mention - get the specifications from the AQA website.

At our school they sell specific AQA ones - but i've found some stuff on the mock exams we've done aren't in there and they only provide a very basic analysis of each subject. I'll have a look for the GCP ones

Edit: is this the one? http://www.amazon.co.uk/GCSE-Physics...gp+aqa+physics

My teacher told my a level physics class last week that every time you see someone from your class you should say state a fact about physics. It helps you remember what you already know and teaches you important things you may of missed it lesson. You have to make sure you never use the same fact twice so you cover your whole unit rather than one little bit.
