    I've just done a physics mock exam on motion (suvat etc.), waves and particles (quarks etc.) and it was by far the hardest exam I've done during this week of mock exams. I wasn't sure how to answer a lot of questions and things that weren't on the 3 or 4 past papers I did. The thing that stresses me out is that I've revised a lot and I feel like it was for nothing since it didn't come up and I will most likely get a bad grade despite doing lots of revision. I'm looking to drop Spanish (I don't want to carry it on at A level let alone as a career) and my school most likely won't let me if I'm doing badly in physics (they'd rather me do something I'm good at now), meaning that I'll have less time to dedicate to physics and I'll be doing a subject I don't enjoy. What should I do? Speak to my teacher? Drop physics? Study hard?

    I'm in the same position as you but I'd definitely say keep going with it. I'm planning to drop it because I've lost interest, but if you're keen then I'd say keep doing it. Physics is by far one of the hardest A levels, but it's also one with so many online resources! Use KhanAcademy, physicsandmathstutor.com, the HUGE amount of past papers online and DrPhysicsA (on YouTube) to help you!!
