Physics OCR A A-level Notes

Hi,
I would like to ask people who got an A or A* for their notes, if possible complete and OCR A spec. Just got a D in my Y12 mock and was disheartened as I really need an A/A* for uni. Textbooks just waffle on and I don’t have enough time to make detailed legible notes otherwise it would take a century and a half 😅. So pleeease help. Thanks.

The OCR A spec you can find online the link for it is here:

Notes I can’t help you with the notes to be honest but one textbook I can recommend to you is this one

Also going through other people’s notes may not be the best idea, because for most people its best to do active learning and information would stick more easily but obviously if you’re short for time then it might be best to look over someone else’s and also different things work for different people.
Lastly don’t worry too much if you put in the work, you can definitely turn that D to an A or A*, plus I’m sure you have another set of mocks in september/october, right?
You’ve got this.
