how many past papers have you done? I suggest doing them at least 4 if not more- It wont take long but it fixes timing issues and any areas that you are stuck on. Generally for physics the theory tested on the exam is not as complex as in other sciences- so if you do papers you can identify the theory you need to know and learn it from he mark schemes

Although I don't do OCR A, I've heard your mechanics paper is similar to maths mechanics so just watch the M1 videos on Examsolutions.

Just do as many past papers as you can. No point covering new material as you won't remember it. Good luck.

I think they'll put some hidden prefixes in this paper, something maybe about airbags/seatbelts/trilateration... I think this paper may be harder than last years.

OCR A Mechanics is nothing like M1 at all Very little resolving apart from maybe one question worth 2 marks

Same. It has been getting harder in recent years with the 2014 paper being slightly dodgy in a sense :') Definitely some things about car safety/trilateration/Galileo's overturning of Aristotle's idea of acceleration of free fall since they're taking a lot of things out next year.

Yeah I feel like the biggest idiot in the world for not revising since day one, wish I could have gone back in time and kicked myself into gear! Nevermind! I'd say just get up the mark schemes and remember your equations, of course doing exam questions will help, but there's nearly always a good two pages of energy conversions if I remember correctly. Totally hate the electricity part of AS physics but, the resistivity formulas and god knows what will be mighty useful I imagine. I'm so screwed and wishing for a miracle.

What are they taking out? Are these the topics that are likely to come up?

There has been a lot of Work done questions over the last few years, do you reckon they will keep it or get rid of it?

Seeing as this year is the last before the new spec, I'm getting prepared for an onslaught.

Well next year is a completely revamped syllabus for the new Year 12s - all the 'flowery' topics are being taken out. And no, they aren't, but since they're taking them out, i assume they might as well test them right?

Same, I was hoping it'd be easier but considering how hard people found it last year, I don't think OCR are going to do us any favours this year
