I'm doing past papers until I'm sick of them, and I'd recommend the same to anyone.
Getting 90% on AS stuff, usually over 70% on A2 stuff.
Need an A, aiming for A*. Grade boundary will probably be around 70%.

My revision is skimming revision guide, doing topic questions on PMT, looking more into depth in topics I did badly in.
Getting around 70/60% on most topics some as low as 30. Scrapped an A* in mocks at the end of march.
Around halfway through looking at topics individually, once finished I'll do full past papers.
Need an A, hoping for an A*.
Advice: make sure you understand the content well to be able to solve abstract questions.

Also Brain Damage what exam board is that predicted grade boundary for?

AQA. It's been slightly lower than 70 the last few years with the new spec, and usually gets a little higher each year.

Finished spec 2 months ago.
Did 52 past papers from old old spec and old spec, today will start new spec past papers and aiming to finish all of them twice and do other boards too.
All I do is practice papers and active recall.
Aiming for an A*.
CIE paper 5, edexcel unit 3,6 really helped me to improve my practical skills as well as these set of questions specifically for AQA ( https://www.tes.com/teaching-resourc...cheme-11476463)
Also unit 10 AQA old old spec past paper really helps to link all of the A-level physics together.

If you don't do AQA all of the above is kinda good anyways...

make sure your timings right on this 3b is usually way easier than 3a so make sure you have enough time to attempt most of it. For 3a all I can reccomend is past papers olympiad and other spec papers it/s really about deep understanding of topics if I remember right. Also don't be discouraged after the exam comes, I found paper 3 the hardest but I did the best on that one so don't be put off for the rest of your exams when it comes round
