    My normally revision methods are flashcards and mind maps, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a technique specific to Physics that worked? Thankyou

    When I studied for GCSE physics my go to technique would be read the text book, make a one page summary for each chapter and then just do tons of practice question using the chapters summaries I had made. It worked well for me.

    Questions, questions, questions...

    Although you’re on the new gcse with no past papers, the content from the old GCSE will still be similar so you could find some questions on them to complete??

    My maths teacher always said that the best way to revise for any subject that involves maths is to complete questions as that is the only way you will learn what the examiner is looking for, and the trigger words in the questions.

    Good luck in June/July!!

    Perfect timing; I've got a Physics test tomorrow
    For me, physics is just one of those subjects where I have try everything possible and hope for the best. Like it was said above, past papers really work.
    I tend to make loads of revision cards and never actually use them, but while I was making them I had to go through the content and that in itself was revision. Physics is also a lot of maths...in the new system, you can get marks just for remembering equations. So learn all of them, cos that'll get you marks even if you mess up the maths part. There are revision guides out there for physics, too. You can ask your school if they sell them or you should be able to find the guides online.
