my name is Dinosan and I was wandering how all you A level physics student revise ( specifically OCR A physics a level student)

I tend to learn better from videos but there is not much good youtubers who go over ocr a especially , can you recommend me some? Please, pr even any websites which you find really useful

I have a CGP revision guide and tend to read and do summary questions from text book which I feel is not enough, should I be making notes or something.

Any A level physics ocr a student, can you please holla at me, i want to know your method to revise?

OCR have their own revision guides for the A-level physics which I found extremely useful when reviewing/revising content.

ScienceShorts also has some extremely good A-level videos. Not specifically for OCR A, but since the specifications of a lot of exam boards overlap, you'll find most of the stuff you need in his videos.

Physics A-level Online is relatively decent for videos, too.

I never found CGP helpful for physics a-level.
Even as a revision source, it never went into enough detail.

Best way to revise is just do lots of questions, simple as that.
Making notes does help you to remember the content, but the application and synoptic links are the most important, which you'll find a lot in practice/exam questions.

I’ve just recently started A-Level physics (OCR) And I am really struggling especially with 3.1, I just can’t seem to transfer my knowledge to the questions in the actual tests. I usually revise by making notes but that doesn’t seem to be cutting it and we go fast in class too and everyone else seems to understand leaving me further behind. Is there any advice on what I can do?

As mentioned above there is overlap between the subject content across exam boards.
If in doubt just go on your subject page and you should find some guide along the lines of 'switching from AQA or Edexcel'..

These documents are useful since they summarise the difference and similarites between the specs.

Also do exam questions, mark them and whatever you got wrong (lets say an definition or a concept) copy down what the mark scheme says onto a flashcard.

I know for computer science OCR are very specific with their mark schemes but i dont know if the same will apply with physics
