It's easy to get A* in Math and Physics.
Once you know the formulas and how they are applied, you are good to go.

No, thats a very good starting point, but you need to do lots of practice with past papers so that you can immediatly spot how to approach a question and what equations to apply.

For the tougher questions there really is an ability / insight requirement that hard to "just learn". Physics and maths are tough subjects, being able to visualise problems and see "non obvious" routes to a solution, e.g. from symmetry or dimensional analysis rather than brute force maths becomes increasingly important.
