What I would do is make sure that I know all of the content. Then I think it would be best to do some past papers and identify which topics you aren't as strong in and revise them, then do some more practice questions.
Also instead of making your own flashcards I think it would be best to find ones already made, considering your exam is in such a short amount of time. Physics and Maths tutor offer a bunch of resources for GCSE and A-levels, including flashcards, mind maps and summarised notes which should help you. I would also suggest watching videos for the topics you might not understand as well, because Physics can be really difficult to wrap your head around sometimes.
I hope this helps, and good luck with your exam!

I find that making summaries of the specification + textbook really helps with memorisation. I would say memorise as much notes as you can then try doing past papers to retain and apply the newly found knowledge.

I wish you all the best, good luck! :biggrin:

Thank you so much , really appreciate it ! BTW What do you mean by summary of the specification , do you mean the unit as a whole with guidance from the specification to ensure I’m not learning useless information ?

Yes!
Each exam board has their own guidelines and content that a student has to revise for. I would look it up online and see what I’d have to learn for the subject (e.g. biology AQA requires us to learn the process of monoclonal antibodies) - then in my own words summarise the information I need to learn from the content guide and the textbook provided from the school. :smile:
