    Physics is a hard subject but if you persevere and work hard you will get the hand of it eventually.

    I did Advancing Physics, which is the worst A-Level Physics course and also struggled. I did get a good C in the end and did get an A in my coursework! Just keep at the past papers and keep going over the definitions. If you know someone who did or is doing A-Level Maths ask them to help as A-Level Physics involves A-Levels Maths. I struggled with the Maths if I remember correctly. Formulae are your friends - look at them and use that to work out the relationship. Get your teacher to explain stuff to you. I ended up getting private tutor which was a huge help. If you are really struggling closer to exams, I'd suggest looking into getting a tutor. I remember it sometimes took me several attempts to understand some stuff. I think if my sixth form had done OCR Physics I would have done better because Advancing Physics has the worst textbook ever written!

I HAVE TRIED ADOPTING HIM TO STOP THE PARENT SIGNATURE CLAUSE BUT I'M ONLY 12.ANY ADVICE I CAN GIVE THIS BI**H TO KEEP HER IN PHYSICAS?
