    I was a humanities student in O Level becuase I was bad at Math and didn't think I could make it for engineering, I've become a lot better at Math since then and I am thinking of taking a gap year and doing Physics (GCSE and AS/A2).

    I'm currently in the second year of A Levels and I will hopefully graduate with a B or above in Maths(AS/A2) and Computer Science(AS/A2), so if I stay in A Levels an extra year and do Physics as well I can apply for Computer Engineering.

    As soon as I'm done with my May/June 2017 exams in Maths and Computer Science I'm going to start studying for GCSE(and AS) Physics to give the exam in May/June 2018.

    I'm probably only going to cover GCSE and AS Level Physics over my summer break and then rejoin school for A2 classes.

    What advice would you people have? Where should I start and what resources are there that I should use to get a good grade?
    (Also keep in mind that I have no previous experience with Physics(beyond the M1 module in AS Math.)
