    Hi guys, I'll be crashing higher physics when I go back to school, I haven't done it since second year, any tips on how to do well? Should I try and get through the nat 5 course quickly first before I go back? Also I'm taking adv chemistry and biology so hopefully the chemistry may help with physics in some aspects?
    Thanks!

    Hey, I would recommend going through the nat 5 course, but not pressure/radiation, because those things aren't in the new higher course. Everything else in the Nat 5 course is like the building blocks for higher. And yeah, I didn't take chemistry, but a large part of the physics course has sections to do with chemistry in it, so I think you'll have a good head start in that respect.

    AH Chem isn't going to help you that much with Higher physics tbh. The only overlap is the topic about photons and energy levels which is a small part of your physics course. And yeah, definitely quickly go over nat 5 stuff, Higher physics will be quite difficult without nat 5, its also pretty maths heavy so maybe polish up your algebra as well?

    Buy the How to Pass book. It is the bomb for revision.

    Brief look at nat 5 course. It isn't that necessary but stuff like Projectiles, Vectors and left/right hand rules are important. Electricity rules are essential so go over that or you will struggle a lot in that unit. Chem doesn't help that much unless it's problem solving.

    Best of luck.
