I'm only taking an AS in physics. So I'll have 20 days to focus on AS physics alone. Possible to go from a high C to an A??

If so, how?

Thanks in advance

Lol, 3-4 days is more than enough if you're gonna spend them just on physics and nothing else. The practical stuff is really hard though so that might take longer but 20 days is TOO much time, in my opinion.

Maybe it's just me though. I'd do a topic or two a day? Like particles and EM radiation, photoelectric effect etc. on day 1, mechanics & materials on day two etc.

By not asking if you can do it, and simply doing it! Get off and go revise your ass off

Ye though what about past papers? Especially the new spec is a bit harder imo

Target specific weak points, read the book, do summary questions then do timed exam questions.

Took Physics.
Made the mistake of not doing past paper questions.
Got a B overall (3 or 4 marks from an A):
A in depth of physics (OCR A)
and
B in breadth of physics (OCR A).

Just do questions. questions and questions.
If you have any weak areas go over the content and do questions for those weak areas.
Try and apply physics to everyday life as well, this shall help you remember things.

If you don't already, check out the CGP books, they're really useful!

I'm not the best person to give advice about physics but I did this for chemistry and i'm planning on doing it for physics so all I did was just plan to do like a topic or two a day. My advice would be to just REALLY UNDERSTAND IT WELL because trust me exam questions are EXTREMELY RANDOM and only if you understand it really well will you the where the most remote links are.
Hope that helps and sorry i'm not much use lol
