Well, i just began my Physics OCR A course and having not revised during the lockdown and quarantine i've forgotten most of the maths needed. I am not doing maths with physics ( i don't really enjoy maths or have a passion for it) and i have been doubted by my 6th Form Head of Year. Will i struggle heavily without doing maths or will i have to re-learn and study harder than most of my classmates. I feel like i am worrying too much.
If anyone can give me a link to the mathematics required for Physics A level or a good website that could support me.
Any contribution is appreciated

Hi there!
Same here I am an year 13 doing physics with no maths.
Don't worry about the maths! The maths in physics is not hard and trust me the only thing you need to be able to do is re-arranging the equations that they have given you and obviously some simple GCSEs maths.
In terms of resources:
Physics and maths tutor has really good notes and past papers.
A tutor(I have a tutor!)
Alevelphysicsonline.com

YOU NEED TO BUY AND THIS IS A MUST
THE OCR A LEVEL OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS TEXTBOOK AND THE CGP TEXTBOOK these two combined with your exam board textbook will save you energy and the amount of work you need to put in.
And finally don't measure your knowledge with your other classmates.Yes physics is a hard subject and is not easy,hence so you need to work hard.But please keep in mind that A/levels is ALL ABOUT YOU,its not about your classmates or who is more good in physics.LEARN AT YOUR OWN PACE!

Hope this has been useful and good luck!!!
