How much harder is a2 physics compared to AS (im doing ocr b). I think most of AS was ok but momentum and photons, waves etc was hard. Do you think it's worth me reading over the A2 content over the summer or is it not that bad. Thanks in advance

I did Edexcel Physics so it may not apply to OCR but I honestly found the transition between AS and A2 very easy. I don't feel like the difficulty of content changed at all. I feel like what could be challenging is the fact that you will be expected to remember both years worth of content and there will be more questions that combine topics (this could be an Edexcel thing).

The pace of work should increase and a lot of the smelly maths will turn up in A2

It is more interesting though
