I’m currently studying A2 physics and I am looking for a new technique to revise. I usually write and read over notes but I have found this to be not very effective. If you have any suggestions I would appreciate them.

Do past paper, from old syllabus and from other board as well. Do as much as you can and read the mark scheme carefully. Don't mark your paper by how many mark you've got, but how many mark you lose and where.

I have 3 books for each of my A-levels
1 book for Notes, going in a linear style of the syllabus, has some example of questions related to that topic
1 book for work in the classroom and also for random quick notes
1 book for questions from book/online etc

Hope this helps, I am also currently studying A-level physics and I found this work exceptionally well. I am currently being predicted an A* for my course.

I really like both ideas. Do you have any useful resources? There isn’t a textbook to a good standard with the WJEC.

Hmmm, I use variety of websites such as
Questions:

https://www.physicsandmathstutor.com/
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...5B880806EBE0A4
Experiment Set Up and also sort of stretch

http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/to...icalSciences#5
http://physics.wfu.edu/demolabs/demos/

http://www.iop.org/

These are quite broad and each has a different use for them.
Some focus on the set up of experiments, others on the types of questions you may encounter in tests, others I use to help stretch my abilities. There is quite alot there

I didn't use any Physics textbooks at all, made my own notes using mark scheme. The thing is Physics textbooks aren't very good, or too expensive. I find the knowledge given in the book is not even a quarter of what is being tested.
Also I hope WJEC is not a d*** like Edexcel, their mark scheme doesn't even make sense...
