    hi we did OCR physics A and its a good course, i liked it a lot

    forces and motion in january is an easy exam but most people nail the exam and the grade boundaries are raised a lot


    the forces fields and energy exam at A2 is a little toughy but it is a good course, tough, but good

    Depending on your strengths, it will either be really good, or really awful. I hate anything to do with electricity, and unfortunately there is quite a lot of it. A whole exam called Electrons and Photons and there is a lot in FF&E (which somehow, amazingly i got 77/90 for ) The worst exam however comes at the end of year 13...Unifying Concepts...ew! It is nasty, but whichever exam board you do, there will be a unifying "synoptic" exam. I got a C for that exam, but expected at best a D! The option module can be pretty good too. We did Cosmology, which is interesting, but ****ing difficult. I think all the options are as difficult as each other however, and chances are your school will choose for you (well, ours did!)

    Good luck with it, if you work hard, you can do really really well. And if not, retakes are a god-send! 100% is really easy to obtain second time round
