Hi everyone!

I was just wondering whether anyone has some really good revision techniques that they don't mind sharing -I am currently in the process of revising for a physics exam (The entirety of P1) and don't know where to start!

Thank you

For GCSE Sciences you could watch FreeScienceLessons videos on Youtube to recap your knowledge on P1 before doing a past paper. Alternatively you can use GCSEPod or MyGCSEScience as well to recap your knowledge before attempting to do a P1 paper. Do note that the grade boundaries are as tight as other Sciences, you only need about 27 for a Grade B (if you're with AQA).

Thanks so much for the help!
Do you know what the grade boundary is for an A/A*?

Quick question, do you have any recommended sites from which I can access past papers?

Just go to the exam board e.g AQA and find the past papers from there.

Depends what year you're doing. For 2015 P1, I think it was 45 for an A*, but I'm not too sure...

Is this AQA? In which case, you should be able to access past papers from their website: http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/scien...d-mark-schemes

Go through your notes - learn your notes and methods. Make mind maps? Flashcards? (Flashcards are good because you can keep going over them!)
Once you have done that do lots of past papers and keep going over it.
