    Paper 1 is called Particles, Radiation and Quantum Phenomena - covers particle physics, the photoelectric effect, light and such.
    Paper 2 is called Mechanics and Molecular Kinetic Theory - covers mechanics, and things to do with temperature/gas molecules.
    Paper 3 has coursework, and the exam is called Electricity and the Elastic Properties of Solids - covers electricity (obviously) - both direct and alternating, Kirchoff's Laws, and stretching solids.

    Personally, no idea, I did triple science. Double scientists didn't have much of a problem.

    Yeah, incorporated with wave energy. For example, E=hc/L
    A wave's energy is equal to Planck's constant multiplied by the speed of light, divided by its wavelength.

    Not *that* necessary. Though if you have a flick through Wikipedia about atomic structure (Physics, not Chemistry); it will familiarise you with that.
    Note: we learnt Unit 3 before Unit 1.

    Basically double science GCSE was a total joke. Nearly everything you will learn will be new. Dont go through GCSE notes lol - such a waste of time.
