Hi evri1, my AS physics exam is cumin up in a couple of weeks and it feels as if i just dont know anything!
If any1 has any tips in revising or ways to just cram as much info in as possible, ill luv to here it.
Also ive been told that doing past papers is the best way to pass an exam- do you think this is true? Thank you!!
Although Chemistry (my field) is a bit different to Physics, the basic principles are the same when it comes to revision.
Firstly, ask yourself if you think you know everything. If you do, great but if not, address the areas you know are difficult.
Secondly, once you have a good chunk (maybe a whole topic or even the whole module)of the work under control, get some past paper practice.
If you have the time and the dedication, I would suggest you do the past papers as follows:
1. Under exam conditions
2. Go through the same paper with your notes and textbooks to get the best answer you could possibly get.
3. Go through the mark scheme and see which bits you missed out / got wrong.
Learn from your mistakes on that paper and then do the same process on the next paper.
It is a waste of time to just copy the answers from the mark scheme on to the paper.
Good luck: there is still quit a time available and, if you get stuck in now, there is a lot of work that you can do.
;) i know ur worried about ur exams
make spider diagrams
make sticky notes and stick'em in ur room
practice as many exam papers as you can
don't only read things, teach them to other friends, parents and write,the only way to learn is teach
i know u might have not like these things but try and do what i said
That is great advice.
im going to put it to practice. Does anyone know where to get past papers from.
Again, I can only really speak for AQA Chemistry but I am sure Physics both at AQA and other boards will be similar.
Past papers are usually available from the Boards' website. I suggest a Google search. Altrnatively, your own teacher should have some available. As well as the papers, you need access to the mark scheme but don't cheat yourself by just copying out the mark scheme.
Best plan: Do the paper under exam conditions. Then do it again with your books and notes. Then mark it (as harshly as you can). Then get back to the notes etc to sort out any difficulties. Then find another paper and do the whole process again. Good luck.
well i think you sound worried but you dont just have to panic.you may think you dont know anything bcos of rumour that the exam will be though but be yourself and work through past papers.another thing i wil tell you is that DO YOUR BEST AND LEAVE THE REST
