I'm in my second year now and I have no idea how I got predicted an A, because I genuinely don't understand anything in lessons. I wish I dropped it, but it's too late now as UCAS is sent off an everything. How do I understand physics????? I want to spend more time on physics work, but I just don't have the time to either, as my other A-level subjects are of a higher priority. Help please if u have any advice

lol yeah, but I think that's only because I was the only one in the class who bothered doing questions on Isaac, which my friends helped me with.

Yeah i guess, but I don't know what to do about the practicals, because most of our results are usually wrong :/
Is there a link to where all the practicals are listed and explained?

Even though I am predicted B, my advise as a Physics lover is that you should start with first clearing your mind,
like do meditation or listen to music or something for 5-10minutes.

Then use either a complete coursebook like CGP Physics or use "A level physics online" who is a youtuber for thorough explanations on any topic you find difficult to understand. Doing question papers is next priority as you already seem to know how to tackle them. So, just go through the above steps to boost your confidence and you will be fine good luck!!

Go to AQA's website if it's your board and then go to practicals and download the pdf. It has the method clearly explained with sample results with some of them.

AQA (if that's your exam board) website
Damien king's YouTube channel has all the practicals and results
GCSE and A-level physics youtube channel explains the practicals for you.

There’s a YouTube channel called “science shorts” I think, and they do videos on a level physics, as well as go through some past papers, so that might help

Yeh I don't fancy it as well, but for practicals they might be similar like AQA, if not just do general search on youtube. If it still doesn't help use a good method for the experiment and request your teacher do it again in your free period maybe?

That teacher sounds just like my chemistry teacher, well...you gotta try if you can't find it on youtube and if you really need those results. Also, frees are not frees, if you get what i mean
