In this video I talk about the things you need to do to get a grade 9 in GCSE Physics. Previously I talked about how the grade 9 boundary will be calculated, but this video goes into more detail about how to actually make sure you are in one of the top tiny percent of people who will get a grade 9. Waste no time at all and get on with these study tips straight away.

General Text Books
My highest recommended textbook for GCSE Physics is “Physics for You”: http://amzn.to/2mU8CJS
This is the latest edition for the new 9-1 GCSEs. Although it is not exam board specific, the explanations are the best and it covers everything you need to know. The questions are tailored to exam boards.
Exam Board Specific Guides
I do think that the CGP revision guides are the best ones, I think that sometimes the diagrams are a little childish, and it annoys me that they seem to underline every single word! But they are thorough, are trusted by students and schools and are written in an accessible way.

I also really like the look of these grade 8-9 targeted revision books, definitely one for you if you are aiming for the top grades! http://amzn.to/2rrkKYn
They also make these nice ten minute test books, which are good if you struggle to fit in long periods of revision. http://amzn.to/2BhlP4N
I also found this GCSE Physics Lab book going through required practicals for the AQA GCSE which I thought was a pretty good idea. http://amzn.to/2rsksRf
Lastly for GCSE if you struggle with handling the maths then this book might be the most useful: 9-1 Sciences Essential Maths Skills http://amzn.to/2EYnLRW
Make sure you’ve got a decent calculator! Not just the hand-me down from your older sibling! You need the modern functionality and you need it not to die at an important time! To be honest the Casios are the best, this is the standard one, the fx-85GT: http://amzn.to/2mTfkQs
and this is the flash one: http://amzn.to/2Dt110h
