Have you used up all the past papers of current spec?
No, I haven't. I've been doing other past exam questions and I just find them really difficult. I've tried actual past papers and have found that I can do all the mathsy questions, but I get stuck on the wordy theory ones. :s
Can some one help me with a question please: Question 7b http://www.drewett-gray.co.uk/alevel...ffe_04_Jun.pdf. I've looked at the mark scheme but still don't really understand Any help is much appreciated!
NOTE: Half of this question paper is irrelevant for us (the questions on fields).
4cii has something to do with the way that the amplitude increases vastly when a system is oscillated at its natural frequency - if I had to say I'd mark just under the peak with the frequency for the earlier question but I'm not entirely sure?

"cough PM cough PM!!!!!". They dont moniter this.... .Thats quite vague i mean thats the main topics of the syllabus?
Ive done all the past papers got high B mid B and a high C. I dont know what to do now though. :/ any advice?
Sorry - thats as far as i am prepared to go!
Check out the mark schemes and examiners reports. There is an art in scoring marks on questions that you cant do. The object is to make sure you get at least 50% on every question including those you cant do. The mark schemes show you that you can score marks just by writing down basic physics related to the question even if you dont know what to do!
I really wish there were more past papers for this. Unlike the AS level modules there doesn't seem to be any legacy modules that correspond to it. Like with mechanics last year the papers they had before were virtually the same stuff but this is different.
All the past papers I've done have been all over the place. I've had a B, a D and an A (in that order!) in the 3 papers I've done so far. The grade I'll get will really depend on exactly what comes up and how harsh the boundaries are >_<
