OCR A-Level Physics A -- struggling

I need an A or B in physics, I have done all the past papers and have gotten 3 Bs (5 marks off an A roughly) and 2 Cs (both 1 or 2 marks off of B). I have also done other questions and question packs for each topic... I don't know what else to do?? Like I spend a lot more time revising maths but I have kinda exhausted all options from OCR for physics really. Should I go to diff exam boards and just do the mathsy questions?

If anyone has any advice pls, paper 1 is 24th may and I thought I was chilling but apparently not..

Try to understand why and how you get to certain answers. For example I’d say try annotating a mark scheme or one of your marked past papers, with extra information specifically what you got wrong but why, and explain the answers basically. Multiple choice questions are quite good for this specifically.

I think it helps grasp the content a bit more as my mistake last year was understanding equations, I knew how to utilise them but not actually what they meant or how to apply them to written questions.

You could also just do physics and maths tutor questions per topic for the specific topics you’re losing marks on or even redo past papers. I hope this helps!

Have you tried relaxing, i need 3 A's and my average grade is a D. Its all about mentality and thats what i plan on using for the exam tommorrow. That and shoveling coffe into a red bull and chugging it before i enter the exam for maximum energy.
I might be cooked......
