Not likely. Be sure you already studied a college prep math course containing Trigonometry; and any computer programming skills you have can be good, too.

You are already more than half way ( certainly in lesson hours) towards the GCSE Exams and there is no real step up in difficulty from Yr 10 to Yr 11. I would say that the important thing is to concentrate on the actual content of your course, and not get too sidetracked into the more tasty bits of Physics that may crop up. Your main task is to score as high marks as possible (obvs.) and you should aim to play by 'their rules', which you may find annoying. Answering a GCSE question with facts that you happen to know but which are not actually part of the question will probably not get any extra marks and it could waste your time.

Get hold of at least two different GCSE Revision Guides and download a copy of the Syllabus (often called the Specification) for the Exam Board that your School uses. Those documents are a bit long and rambling and have a lot of blurb about the Aims of the Course etc. but, in there, will also be a list of all the topics and facts that you could be examined on. If your School has not supplied you with past papers, you can get them on line from all the Exam Boards, along with the Marking Schemes that the Markers worked to. There are very few changes from year to year so, when you get to the real thing, you may recognise the basic questions and you will know what's needed for high marks. Answering technique can make as much difference to your final marks as subject knowledge.
Good luck.
