can somebody help me on this question please? I'm rubbish at Resistance been trying to understand it so i concluded that: if there resultant force = Accleration... BUT if it's in electricity it be the one trying to slow it down. ( is this correct )

Spoiler:

Is that all the information you are provided with? There should be some mention of speed or acceleration. If the skier is slowing down, then there should be an arrow pointing to the upper-left (against the direction of travel). If the skier is accelerating, there should be an arrow pointing to the lower right.

You are right in thinking that resultant force ~ acceleration. In this situation, you need to find out whether the weight (force due to gravity) of the skier is greater than the resistive forces acting upon him. The only way you'd know that is if the question mentioned a change in speed though.

For those who are doing OCR 21st century science (add. science), could you by any chance help mw out with P5 and P6!
I have the most useless Physics teacher, so any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks

Me! I hate RE so much. What units is everyone doing? I'm doing Relgion & Society and Relgion & Life based on Christianity and one other relgion~ Islam.

Does anybody know what in particular the examiner (WJEC but I'm certain the other boards don't stray too far) are looking for with English Literature and/or Language for the top grades?

A lot of things. I did WJEC last year.

Clear, relevant answers. Answers that show thought. Answers that are backed up by quotes or extracts from the text. A good and creative use of vocabulary. Using the correct writing style which is required. Not misspelling (too much). Good grammar. They are basically looking for candidates who have an understanding and appreciation of the texts. They are looking for creative answers that are convincing (use quotes to back this up).

Is there something in particular you are worried or unsure about?

OK thanks.

The thing I'm unsure about in particular is the actual structure of my answers. I'm not sure how I do that.

Thank God I did mine last year
RE with Edexcel is really easy, so you'll do fine!
Just make sure that you know the techniques on how to answer the questions and make sure that you know the meanings to the keywords
Revise from mark schemes, the questions are really repetitive, so this would be my strongest advice!
If you need any help, then just ask me!
Good Luck

Case studies are my worst enemy. There's so many of them, and I don't know which ones are which!

Which topics do you do?
Same! I think some case studies are inter-linked though to reduce the amount we have to learn (:

I'm doing Physical: Ice on the land; Water on the land; Ecosystems.
And Human: Tourism; Devlopment; Urbanisation

Apparently our geography department have chosen the easiest topics O_O
But I don't quite agree.

Cool - yeh lucky for you to have done yours

our teacher gave us this sheet with basically every question they could ask us. after all - there is a limited amount they can ask.
I've been planning four points for each part C... and learning my key words. I find B's and D's ok tbh
community cohesion is the annoying topic..

OK thanks.

For GCSE, examiners will not expect a perfect response. It is generally better to be writing than hesitating too much about what to write (maybe give it a little thought, like a rough overview beforehand). That is especially true in English Language, which most people do well to finish.

My best advise in terms of structure is make sure of the following:
1. Your response makes sense in a very basic way.
2. Each point follows on from the last, or each successive point is in a logical order (e.g. write about love in chapter 1 to 5, then love in chapter 6 to 10)

Some people naturally have good structure, you should talk to your English teacher to see whether or not they think it is something you need to work on.

Is there something in specific you want help with? The physics help forums are often very good, and I could probably weigh in on a few problems.

If it's more general, have you looked into any textbooks or revision guides that OCR endorse for GCSE? I would highly recommend getting them and using them as a main core from which to revise.

Yeh sadly I could find no way for tsr to accomodate such punctation...

and it looks like its good revision for you - i will continue to make mistakes and you can correct them lol
I haven't done German since year 9

Thank you again. I wanted to rep this post but I did it on the last one so apparently I can't do it again.
