    Hello all,

    I nearly finished my IGCSE BOOK, and it just seems when I look at the past papers, I don't know how to answer it ... because non of the questions are in the book ... it's more likely as experiments and all but I just don't know, I would really need some advices on how to do it and what to study, since my exams are on the 11th.

    PS: it seems easy if you have the knowledge but for me I have NO CLUE.

    Thanks in advance

    IG physics paper 6 is easy. It's stuff like reading the number off the ruler, measurements. If you go through all the experiments in your book, for paper 6, you should be fine.

    yeah, but its papers 4 not 6, anyways, I don't know how to answer past papers... although it is experiments but there should be a trick.

    Same was the case with me actually! For the life of me I couldn't understand how to solve P4.

    But the trick is to just start solving...consult the marking scheme every time you get stuck. Slowly the pattern will start to make sense. Hope that helped.

    Well I appreciate the efforts and thanks,

    I seem to recall this was a little while and when I had no clue, right now I seem to become better at it due to my private tutor, and when I read this post I didn't seem to recall it was me

    Anyways this thread is solved. Thanks
    It was paper 6 btw.
