Welcome to GCSE AQA Physics Revision and Study Chat! :hi:

The exam timetable is:
Wednesday 20th May: Paper 1 (8463/1F+H)
Friday 12th June: Paper 2 (8463/2F+H)

How are you feeling about these exams? Do you feel prepared? What have you started doing to prepare for your exams? Comment down below!
How to prepare for exams (general tips)

1. Create revision resources, whatever they may be it needs to be what works for you. If writing out notes over and over doesn't work for you, please don't waste your time!
2. Use the revision guide to make your notes, the copy from the exam board is your best bet - rather than using copies from other sources.
3. Create a revision timetable if this works for you. Try TSR's tool here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/g/planner
4. Re-read your notes, repetition is the best method of drilling notes into your brain.
5. As it gets closer to the exams complete past papers. The more the better in the end!

This thread is for anyone studying GCSE Physics(AQA)
. Chat below and find other students in the same situation as you! Help each other revise, study and share resources. Good luck everyone :goodluck: :dumbells:

Bio and Chem are good, but physics is a bit on the downside. I have my next Mocks in March and we haven't even begun learning the content for paper 2. And I'm procrastinating so much😂 hbu?

Literally me physics mock that i did in november was the one i did the worst in the sciences. And the content for me is too much lol. Iv only just pushed myself to do physics revision daily as i need to improve in it but keep procrastinating lol. We have only one topic left electromagnetic and just completed waves today which i dont even understand it and topic test next week. So need to start revising for it.
Physics and maths tutor website id good don't know if u know about it has lots of practice questions.

yes same!! My physics mock was the worst out of the three. But yeah I also don't understand waves, but at some point, I'll have to force myself to understand it because everything in physics is just so complicated. And I made the stupid decision of choosing it as one of my A-Levels *face palm*

Physics is definitely my worst science of the 3. I got 9s in Chem and Bio but a 7 in physics.

Would you think I'm lying if I said everything?😂 because my mind is genuinely blank when I think about waves. I can only think of the words "frequency" and "wave length".

ha. i have my physics paper 2 mock tomo. but these idiot teachers took out questions on content we hadn’t covered as so are throwing in paper 1 questions on there too which is horrible because as soon as I’d finished the physics paper 1 mock a few days ago, everything just left my brain.

We did Energy in year 9.
Now I am learning about Atomic Structure (e.g.radioactivity and radioactive decay etc).
This year we did electricity & particle model of matter.
(BTW I'm doing AQA what exam board are you doing?)
