AQA AS Physics - Snap Revise?Watch
I wanted some advice for A-level Physics.
What resources should I use?
Is it worth investing in a 3 month basic membership of snaprevise just to use the videos if my teacher isn't great?
I don't have experience of Snap Revise for physics personally but I'd imagine it'd be equally as good as it is for Chemistry and Biology. The videos are concise and explain topics well and are very good for both teaching and revision - it works super well for me. If you use a discount code e.g. QSTUDY10 the £30 for 3 months becomes £20 which isn't a huge risk.
No problem. Again, can't speak for physics, but yes and no. I am aiming for an A* in Biology and Chem A level, so technically it definitely is aiding that, but there's one thing understanding content but another thing to also make sure you fully engage with the content - so make notes and then use some form of memory recall e.g. flash cards so it sticks into your head - and it is best to cross reference the Snap Revise videos with your textbook so you get the best of both worlds (sometimes SnapRevise has more detail than my textbook and vice versa) and of course practise tests. I will note that there are videos going through practice questions which can help this, I'd say it's best to pause, try to complete the question yourself, and then watch the walkthrough of it so it's more of an active than passive learning. But for the gaining an understanding and having the information you need presented to you, it does give everything you need in that regard to get an A/A* I'd say.
I did check them out however they don't do AQA and is out of my budget.
That's good - I make flashcards on Anki from physicsandmathstutor to learn the knowledge. It's moreso just understanding difficult concepts that I would need the videos for - I'd just need SnapRevise to build up these concepts from first principles so I understand it. Thank you for your help! If anyone actually does have experience with Physics on SnapRevise please do let me know
Snap Revise have some videos on their YouTube channel - I think they are older videos that have since been updated so there probably has been improvements since but it can give you an idea.
It helps me with difficult concepts, sometimes things can be explained much easier in words than in a textbook.
