    Physics OCR B is horrific,it is difficult, the content is ridiculous and the past papers just silly. I am in year 12 and I have not a clue what to do. I have a bunch of options, but I am not sure what the best is to do (keep in mind I am taking maths, chemistry and History as well as would love to do physics at uni). I could drop and do something with maths and or Chemistry instead, I could change to AQA or another exam board, etc etc. Just please, I am super passionate about physics and it feels like OCR B is the bane of my existence at the moment. Thanks :3.

    The AQA specification is good as it is very well rounded at as the topics are
    Particles and radiation
    Waves and optics
    Mechanics and materials

    Then at A2 there is
    Further mechanics
    Thermal physics
    Nuclear physics
    a optional one from astrophysics, medical physics, engineering physics, turning points and electronics

    It also isnt hard as long as you understand the basics concepts and can apply them
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
