    I'm in year 12 atm so taking the new a levels. I'm doing OCR A Physics, but struggling with the new style of qs. To prepare for my mock I completed loads of the old mechanics papers and did quite well in them yet they seemed very different and easier than the new papers. How would you recommend to revise for physics? Are the old papers even worth doing and if not what should I do instead? Thanks in advance

    Maybe try questions from a range of sources, so that you're practicing applying the knowledge rather than just learning how to answer ocr's questions. IsaacPhysics might help but it's not the most exciting website, although my physics has improved a lot since I started using it, and I wish I used it while I was doing A-Level physics.
