    Heya!
    I haven't seen any forums on this exam that was in the afternoon today! How did everyone find it?
    Personally, the question with the boat and the last one (because I misdrew the diagrams) let me down.

    Hey I did the same exam, did the hier tier, I perosnally found it hard,
    Agree the last question was hard I didn''t understand at all and it was worth 4 marks
    What were the drawings about on the boat because I didn't draw anything, hope I didn't miss anything out!

    I did that exam as well, I didn't find it too hard but I know a lot of other people did so the grade boundaries will probably be really low. The last question was about diffraction, the longer wavelength diffrated a lot and the shorter wavelength not so much. simple? I agree the boat question was hard, and one with the blue and red light and the water droplet, really didn't get that one

    Oooh I did the same paper this afternoon, and the blue and red light one really got to me because I tried asking the question in class but it never seemed to be made clear!
    I described that the longer the wavelength the more it diffracts but I don't think my diagrams were obvious enough
    Most people found it hard, hopefully the grade boundaries are low Last year 28 out of 42 was an A*!!!

    I found that so hard I resulted in trying to measure the arrows with a ruler to rule out the counter force and upward force are the same It failed...obviously..

    It was the question about diffraction of different wavelengths on the last page of the paper.

    Nice! Yeah the rainbow one was OK for me...some of it was a bit confusing! I drew more diffraction for a longer ?, but it went wrong so I ended up having to label them!

    I probally just skipped read the questions, it was worth 4 marks, I diidn't do any drawings so probally lost a mark or two
    Hope they put grade bounadries low

    I did the Biology but the Chemistry I did in June. I found the Biology paper had LOOAADDSS of long answer questions and have never done a paper with so many! The difference between the 2008 and 2010 paper was massive. I found the exam pretty okay considering all the long answer questions, what about you?

    I'm in year 11 and hopefully I'll get at least an A on the paper. How do you think you did on the Bio?

    For the last diffraction question I put that because the wavelength was about the same size as the narrow gap, it diffracted more. And in the other one I put it didn't diffract at all because the gap was smaller than the wavelength. I'm not entirely sure if this is right tho :/

    I found this paper quite hard especially the questions about red and blue light, the water droplet one confused me too. I bet I messed up the circuit and boat questions too. I hope the grade boundaries are low because the majority of my classmates found the exam relatively hard too.

    I hated this exam! I found it so hard! Everyone else seem to have found it easy. So hopefully *fingers crossed* The grade boundaries will be really low.
