listen i'm studying for the november exams and i've taught myself more physics in the past two months than either of my teachers did in fifth or sixth it won't impact ur grades if u work for it

how did you study the physics course? did u just read your textbook or?

Just constantly practice exam qs and if there's a question you don't know the answer to/ not in your notes just write the question in your notes with the answer and learn it

You can find the syllabus on curriculum online. You could just use that to structure your own learning.

For me, I write notes out of my physics textbook and constantly practice the exercises that are in the textbook. Also, I suggest you could use mathsphysics.com because it helps a lot for the experiments. Link: http://mathsphysics.com/

are the exam papaer questions repetitive? or are they always diffrent? or are they similar??

They are pretty repetitive so don't worry too much. If you really don't like the subject then a good way to learn it is to just keep writing whatever notes and exam paper anwers as you can and eventually it will be embedded into your soul.

you seem really stressed so if you want i'll send you my school notes after november. i went through each set of notes and wrote down as many questions as i could think of. i practised answering them daily until i'd get them all right and then i'd move onto exam questions to make sure i'd be able to answer them all. don't waste your time making notes if you don't get notes at school, just go through your textbook chapters and make questions for relevant information. it takes way less time and helps it sit in ur brain better imo.

I'm literally in the same situation with having a bad physics teacher, and I know this is an option which involves money, but I enrolled in the physics course for Grade Academy and I learned more there than in the last year in school. It was definitely a worthwhile investment for me, maybe it will help you too. At least you can try the free trial. https://www.gradeacademy.ie/

You should try organic chemistry on youtube great for maths, physics, and chemistry just watch the videos take notes and use your textbook to practice excercises. If you are getting right answers should be set. remember have a growth mindset always improve hardwork and effort pays off.
