    How do understand and revise physics? I have tried everything to revise including paying for a private tutor every week, doing questions and past papers, watching videos and making flash cards but I can’t seem to remember any of the information. With other subjects I can remember all the key words and information easily but I almost seem to have a mental block with physics. How can I solve my problem??

    I find it really useful to try a mix of different resources when studying subjects I don't understand. Find that some of them end up resonating more than others, and finally I get it. I use youtube channels (have you tried freesciencelessons on youtube?), revision websites for testing (Seneca Learning and Quizlet both good), and then also use my school notes. This combination usually helps. Good luck

    Make models. So for an atom, get a tennis ball and create rings around it etc.
