    i am absolutely bricking it.

    i'm struggling to make predictions for 6 markers on physics because based on the 2015 paper, the questions are a bit random! but on the p456 i don't think there was much on motors or something so that could be in there! i can't even think about p7 yet - we haven't finished learning it!

    Aw...I know a lot of my friends are worried about physics (we had a shocking year 10 teacher) but personally it's my strongest science and I'm taking it for A Level
    Don't worry though, I'm sure with revision it will all make some sense and you'll be able to get a good grade
    Ooo I really hope motors do come up! I really understand them - unlike resistance which I really need to go over as I'm constantly forgetting it...
    That's a shame that you haven't finished learning P7 yet, luckily we decided to do it earlier so we definitely had enough time to finish it. Physics is the only science that we've actually finished learning the content for!

    Hi, just to let you know I've made a thread for chemistry. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4094377

    I think I did alright in the bio exam maybe 42/60 then the chemistry one today was very good so I'm aiming for 50/60 but tbh I'm acc scared for physics as it's my weakest science which I haven't gotten into my head since year 9.😩 I need all the help I can get

    I need all the help I can get with this. Physics is my worst science! I really liked the chemistry exam today and the biology exam was ok as well, but I'm kind of hopeless at physics. If anyone has revision notes for P1-3, please let me know. Closer to the time I also need help with P5 and P6, as I was either absent for a lot of those lessons or the ones I was in I couldn't focus on well due to my mental health acting up at the time, so I basically need to completely re-learn 5 and 6 :c

    I have very brief notes on P1-6 which I can PM you if you like? They're by no means very good but they might help a little? Also do you have a revision guide?

    I do, luckily. But if you could PM me your notes, that would also be very helpful! Thank you!

    And that's good, as I honestly wouldn't pass my science exams without using them to supplement the specification!

    *I highly advise everyone to read the specification before their science exams!!!*

    From what I'm gathering everyone here seems to be a bit worried about their physics exams?
    If you all want I could make a few sets of revision cards or something on Get Revising for you, to use as revision? Or are the notes that other people have provided enough? Just say the word and I'll make some

    Physics is my strongest science so I probably won't need to revise it as much as the other 2 so I'm willing to help you out
