I’m aiming high for A/A* in my other two subjects, but since Physics is a hard subject I’d be extremely happy with an A. It’s too late to change so I’m going to work hard. Any tips or useful resources for getting an A?

Crack down on understanding the theories and do every single question that you can get your hands on. My teacher told me that he was an examination junkie, so he literally went through all the past questions (even from older specs) that he could do, eventually you'll do them all and when you get to the exam, they'll have a similar question about the topics

A fundamental understanding why things behave the way they do is critical and not just learning the equations. So do read beyond the syllabus and get things explained from different perspectives.
You will not get that A* grade without it.
As with anything else, practice, practice, practice.Last edited by uberteknik; 05-11-2017 at 14:07.

Understand why each process/equation works so that you can answer a variety of questions around the topic, not just what the textbook/teacher has said.
I'm currently working at an A* in physics and I have mind maps/notes on different concepts so I can understand the background of them, as well as notes I've made in class/from the textbook. Try and do a few practice questions regularly to make sure you don't forget key aspects/exam technique.
