I'm doing AQA board and I need at least an A.

I find the applied parts of physics so HARD ffs. Like the content learning, for example, particle physics and materials is in AS physics is OK but the applied parts like magnetic fields, waves, electricity IS SO HARD. I'm shaking at the thought of the practical exam too. I'm having the same problem with M1 Mechanics too which makes me think I suck at this stuff because i'm targeting high 90's in the rest of the maths modules but i'd take 80 UMS in M1.

Can people predicted A or A*, and are confident on achieving those grades please share how they are revising? It would mean A LOT to me. Thanks...

Do questions from other specs just bear in mind that not everything is in the AQA spec. Try the CIE paper 4 papers on PMT, they are quite challenging

But i'm having a problem in doing even the questions in the AQA textbook. I don't think i'd be capable of doing a more challenging spec, lol.

Just keep doing past years, most of the time the questions might scare you but the concept behind it is what you've learnt. Sometimes you might even come across new stuff in the past years, you can refer to the mark scheme to try and understand and learn new principles from there. Once you're used to the format in the past years, your exam would be quite smooth sailing

I was having a **** time with the electricity chapters. I went and redid all the summary questions from chapters 12 and 13. I'm way better at those chapters now.
Don't skip questions - read over your notes, and the textbook info until you fully understand the answer.
