So I have a physics test and my friend have told me it’s hard so I need some ways of how to get physics stuff in my head because I’m rubbish at physics.
The topic is energy and I’d really like some help, advice, tips etc.

Honestly it’s not as hard as you think it might be yes there are some challenging but but before actually doing it I thought it would be sooo hard but it was ok. I’m not sure wether you are doing higher or foundation but either way make sure you learn the equations! Most exams give the equations but there will always be a question where you need to use the equation to get the answer, honestly for physics some of it is common sense the energy questions normally only require a bit of thinking you just need to remember the forms of energy like kinetic, chemical, thermal etc also try relate the words to objects to help you remember so you have have something to associate the word with you can even dare a little picture in the exam to help you remember. Find things that associate like kinetic for example I always think of a car moving or something moving ... this technique really worked for me but if there’s anything you really want to stick in your mind do the read, write and cover method (idk if it’s actually called that 😂) but read the info you want to remember take it in then write it and repeat it while it’s covered this honestly was my fav technique because it really gets it stuck in your mind if you do it over and over. You could been get friends or family to test you ...
I hope this helped a bit
Good luck! I’m sure you will do great

AQA I think (probably is aqa)
aight for aqa sciences i cannot recommend freesciencelessons enough. his vids are simple, easy to understand and are straight from the specification unlike textbooks which waffle a lot.

link (for energy) https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL...Z4vKy4VfcAhsCj

for energy tho, just remember:
- energy is conserved ALWAYS
- can you describe the energy transfers going on? (e.g. pendulums or dropping a ball)
- energy can dissipate/transfer to other types of stores
- gpe, kinetic, elastic potential, work done and speed equations
- how energy is generated (solar, hep, geothermal, nuclear, etc.)
- theres more but it’s 4am and i can’t think lol. but these are the main points

it might be worthwhile to also purchase the cgp revision guide rn too if you don’t like watching him. the revision guide > textbooks imo cuz they don’t rlly waffle

also to get things in your head just write it down. it doesn’t have to be neat. try doing a spider diagram and write key points you remember.

also try writing key points on your own words (changing words to mean the same thing) so you have a better chance at remembering it

Hi! I'll be going into year 12 in September and I've achieved 12 A*s in my GCSEs. This includes grade 9s in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. I will be taking A Level Biology, Chemistry, Psychology and Latin in September. I have previous experience of tutoring primary school students. However since I've just finished my GCSEs,I believe that I am now in the position to tutor GCSE students

I myself was tutored for GCSE science and found it to be really helpful since this allowed my learning in school to be consolidated multiple times before my final GCSE exams. However I found that my tutors' teaching plans were not very effective since they would usually use passive forms of revision like making us write down notes in class. That's why I tailor the teaching plan depending on each individual students' needs. I have also created Quizlet flashcard decks for each topic of GCSE Science which I can provide to you as part of my teaching plan. These personally helped me achieve Grade 9s in all three sciences.

Please contact me directly for further information if you are interested.
