I did a couple past papers to find out my weak topics awhile ago, e.g. Electrical Circuits, Quantum. So now I'm doing lots of questions and watching videos to understand them and do better. Also, 6 marker questions, my average is 2-3/6 marks and I'm trying to improve on that. Watching practical videos I do sometimes, but mainly I analyse the markscheme and see what they want, safety is always there for example, and then I try to do 2 to 3 '6 markers a school-week.

ofc it is, Physics is such a pain, i'm going for an A not an A*, I feel like it's harder to go from high to higher than low to higher, for example: I think an A to an A* is harder then a C to a B yk?

yes I totally agree, I feel like for even higher there's so many mini details that are important especially with wording
