Just sat my unit 2 mock for the new edexcel physics and I can say (with minimal uncertainty) that I've failed. The paper was a spec paper, and I found it to be ridiculously hard in comparison to past papers/other questions.
The context in which the questions are presented are just so specific and require a lot of thinking (too much for an hour and a half). I found myself skipping so many questions, and despite how much I revised for it, I did ****.
This has been a large source of stress as of late, since I have my physics AS next month. I can't even see myself getting a C in physics, and that won't do much for my hopes of getting into a good uni if my grades look like AAD.
What can I do to prepare for the exams for this new spec? There isn't much material which is specifically designed for it; even our textbooks use exam questions from the old spec which are completely different from what we're given in the test.
Physics feeling so hopeless :s Watch

Talk to your teacher and devise plan to work on your weknesses. Your teacher should know the new syllabus and styles, so he shoyld be able to guide you on where you are going wrong. keep practicing and getting your teacher to mark them. Of you cna find enough past papers, then do 1 a day, maybe splot it in 30 min segments. Practice will make you better. Use your time wisely and leave the worrying till after the exams.
