no. you shouldn’t rely on one source like notes, you need to be doing past paper questions and actually applying the knowledge to find your weakness. you could memorise the whole textbook but if you don’t know how it apply it, you wouldn’t get full marks.

it’s also better to make your own notes as it helps you remember the info. unless you make flashcards etc on the premade notes

Using premade notes can be a good place to start with revision to help fill the gaps in your own notes but if you rely on just notes it would be very difficult to get the top grades. Everyone has different things that work better and you should try experimenting with different resources.

Physics and Maths tutor do have practise questions for some things (can help you become more familiar with how to word things ect.), platforms like quizlet can do flashcards etc.

Thank you for the advice. By the way, do you mean if I make flashcards from premade notes, I don’t have to make my own notes? And for practice, should I repeat questions and how long before exams should I start on them?

Use the premade notes as one of your revision resources, imo the bulk of it should come from your own notes from school/ the textbook
PMT do have good chapter questions though, which you can use to gauge your understanding of a topic after revising it
Good luck with your revision!
