My revision for physics is going well, and ive found a few websites with past papers, mark schemes and notes. But I find it difficult to understand a question and how to answer it, and the mark scheme doesnt help as it doesnt give enough information. For maths, i found examsolution.net which give video tutorials on past paper questions which makes it easy to know how to answer a quesiton. Is there anything like this for physics? any websites on how to answer physics paper questions? and also, is there also websties like this for other science subjects (Im taking OCR for 3 sciences, and EDEXCEL for maths)

I completely understand what you mean. Sometimes mark schemes doesn't really explain the answer to the question in detail. Nevertheless, some questions are asked in such a way that it's hard to find the answer through the mark scheme and it's very difficult to answer it. However, if you give some examples for questions I can definitely help you answer them if possible not that I'm good at Physics, but my brother is ! . Also, easy methods would be to type the question in google or work out what topic the question is related to in the module and then find keywords and try to find out what the question is actually asking you.

Links that my help you:

On the other hand, when it comes to maths, if you exam board is Edexcel Linear (A), I'll be able to help you anytime you ask me. I'm quite good at GCSE Maths and am taking it in Year 10 so i'll be revising over topics a lot soon. Therefore, if you struggle on a topic or need some revision help, you may ask me as I take notes too so I can share them with you .

Hello and welcome to TSR physics.

The thing to remember about mark schemes is that they are not produced for the benefit of students and are most definitely not model answers.

They are produced for the guidance of examiners to mark the papers with consistency and remove ambiguity.
