EDIT: Summary of replies.
- Too much Content
- Too little Time to go over that Content
- Need to Understand that Content as questions worded in a very content-has-to-be-understood way otherwise you don't understand
- Need to have a good Short term memory or less I can keep dreaming about that BBB
Okay, Thanks the information Everybody.
What does cramming mean? What does 'A' level mean?
There's too much content
To give you an idea of the unpredictability, AQA physics paper 3 is about practical skills and we expected it to be based on the 12 assessed practicals we did throughout the course: the actual paper did not refer to a single one.
The questions were also worded to the point where it was difficult to know what they were asking for, and would be impossible to answer without an actual understanding of the topic.
Aside from this, there is also just a lot more content than at GCSE which simply can't be covered in a couple of nights, not to any useful degree.
