    Hi, I'm sitting A2 physics this year, and to be honest, I don't know how to study for physics. I got an A last year, barely.

    I genuinely don't know how to revise efficiently for this subject, nor do I enjoy it much. I have no problems with mechanics questions but I'm not very good at everything else.

    Can anyone provide advice to simply doing well? I'm not intent on studying this subject at university so motivation is hard to come by.

    I also am doing OCR A. I have an exam booklet with every exam paper ever sat for this course, we also have a wikispaces that my teacher set up.
    The CGP revision guides are also pretty good, the textbook is USELESS and i really mean USELESS. They waffle so much in it!
    Basically, i sit exam papers, find the 'module' that i did least well in and I then revise that 'Module'.
    For example, G485 my worst module last paper was the electromagnetic fields, so i revised that over from scratch and sat another paper.
    Rinse and repeat for me

    I'm doing AS physics on OCR A this year and I will be dropping it asap haha, I found that past questions are the best place to start and if you get stuck on one then look it up in your notes/CGP guide
