    What topics in physics exactly?

    You can use physicsandmathstutor to do some questions on a particular topic e.g. Energy levels and see where you go wrong. Physics is better and more fun when you practise what you know rather than reading the info from the textbook repeatedly

    I'm doing AQA too btw

    Cgp is awful at A-Level - would not recommend

    Don't overload on revision resources. Just read it over and over and then apply the concepts to the question, it can't be that different.

    You have enough revision resources, but PhysicsandMathstutor won't hurt.

    I use my teacher, textbook, my friend who sits next to me, my class exercise book + phsyicsandmathstutor <<< in that order too

    The thing is, what works for myself (or anyone else on this forum) may not necessarily work for you. Start by asking yourself: "How do I learn?".

    I personally love writing/answering questions and then checking if I get them wrong. Revise the bit I got wrong and try again in a day or two. For memorising rote facts I prefer flashcards (or TinyCards on Android) along with drawing the stuff I want to remember, such as GPCR pathways and chemistry mechanisms.

    Try a few different techniques, or try to bring techniques from a subject you enjoy/are good at when it comes to revising over to physics and see if that helps you. .

    I plan on using flashcards aswell, thanks for the advice!

    Guys quick question regrading physics. For the gravitational potential energy = Gmm/r ( do you include the radius of the earth in the r or is it just distance between the object)

    R is the separation distance between the centres of the two particles
