During GCSE's one website I referred to a lot was BBC Bitesize, I was wondering if anybody knew of any good website like that but for A level students. I'm studying the 3 main sciences so if anybody knows of anything please let me know

For physics there are some good revision notes on there, and collections of questions by topic. When the exams got near I found videos on youtube really helpful, there were some really good summary videos for the OCR A spec. It was also helpful for me to watch videos on specific topics which I didn't quite understand, as hearing them explained by someone else in a different way can sometimes make it 'click'. Are you doing maths as well or just the three sciences?

Thank you! I used youtube videos a lot for GCSE's also and they definitely helped. But no I'm not doing maths, I know it helps with Physics but I really couldnt bring myself to take it. I've always been "ok" at maths but I do not enjoy it one bit, I find many parts of physics interesting though so thats why I took it. I feel to help me with Physics that I will need to extra maths help

Fair enough aha, I think you'll be fine without it, I was just wondering as the mechanics modules in maths have a lot of crossover with physics so it's kind of like half the work for 2 exams lol. I'm the other way round and enjoyed the maths part of physics a lot more than the questions where you just have to memorise essays.

Having an interest in the subject is a huge help anyway so i'm sure you'll do great, good luck!
