    I haven't taken the a level yet, still in year 12 but some things I find useful are isaacphysics and physics and maths tutor. I make sure I know the key word definitions as there is a decent chunk of marks available for pure recall. Other than that, at the moment for me it's just applying what I know. This is normally past paper questions. Isaacphysics also has a book which I found useful, "Mastering pre-university physics Develop problem solving skills" the questions in it are on the website for free but the book is worth having too (it's 3.50, £1 for book and £2.50 for delivery)
    Tldr - I'm doing past paper questions

    Isaacphysics does have some videos, bust most of it is just going through questions (useful if you get stuck)
    Flippedaroundphysics is also pretty nice. It has a page oer topic with 1-3 worksheets and some recommended videos. In my honest opinion though, the worksheets can be a bit lacking at times so you would definitely want to do more questions afterwards.

    I find ALevelPhysicsOnline really helpful, the analogies he uses are great! The year 13 content is £20 for the year but the Year 12 content is completely free.

    Would recomend 100%
