GCSE Physics at 22 Watch
I need to up my grade in gcse physics as I scored a D back in high school, however now going into the RAF as techy and need a C or above. (originally took triple science)
I am looking at doing all the revision myself, text books and past papers etc. But I am stuck on what the exam will consist of. Will I need to conduct practical experiments or is it just the written paper I will need to do?
If anyone can shed any light on this it would be much appreciated.

Required practicals are only assessed in the exam, so there is no requirement to conduct them yourself. You should be able to watch the required practicals online and read about them in revision guides. If you follow AQA, paper one will consist of the first half of the topics (1-4 if I remember) and paper 2 will be the rest. You will be required to remember approximately 20-25 different formulae that can be applied to specific situations. If you neglect to do this it will be extremely challenging to attain a pass.
Thanks for the heads up on the practical lessons. Have you any advice on booking into a test centre to retake the exam or any associated costs that will be involved?
Looking at the examboard you doing specification on their website will show you what the exam consist of. I think you do need to do so since they’re required practicals but idk too much about it.
