What do you find is the most effective method for learning A-level physics? Past papers, reading, notes, flashcards, quizzes, videos? Anything else?

Look up khanacademy on YouTube, it was a lifesaver for me and got me an A in Physics (alongside past papers and key notes I was told to look over by my teacher).

the specification is a list of things you need to know, I'd say that is quite helpful

I found making notes by hand and on the computer was really worth it. Through this, I was able to first learn new topics by writing it out by hand. Since I had more than one textbook I often wrote a lot, but it was good as I could solidify my understanding. Then after practicing exam questions, I would make computerised notes, and add stuff into them as I found relevant exam questions for a topic and read the markschemes. The newer the exam paper, the more things they often look for and the more understanding they expect from you (like in practicals they look for ways to reduce error which they probably didnt look for before). Thus your notes will always adapt. The topic packs on Physics and Maths Tutor or Umutech are good for AQA or the ones on CowenPhysics are good for OCR. The notes by ForgottenApple are also great to use to help make the computerised notes if you do OCR:
