Is it only me or do some of these question require a calculator.

Take question 10 on the 2007 paper. Like how am I meant to know what cos(10) is loool
If you look at the front page 2007 was a cal paper

you can use the small angle approximations sometimes cos(theta) = 1-((theta)^2)/2

you can use a calculator for the 2007 paper physics section anyway

Thanks guys

do you know the assumptions for small angles of sin and tan
7. what other universities have you guys decided on?!

Only got Warwick and Bristol for now but need 2 more by the end of next week lol

Imperial, Nottingham, Warwick & bath. What about you?

10. sin theta and tan theta approximate to theta for small angles

I'm an international applicant so it takes a little longer for me haha
I was thinking of st.andrews as one of my options but someone toldme its quite an isolated area? and i wouldnt feel right there because i come from dubai and you dont have that type of living exprience here.I am applying to nottingham for sure as well Some of the others ones im considering: One from Manchester/Imperial/Durhamand i think ill go with surrey for my backup, they look lovely

I'm seeing quite alot of Warwick applicants, is it a good university i thought it wasnt all to great as it was made out from what ive read but i am international so no clueIf any of guys who live in the UK could judge some of my choices above and advise me i would be grateful for that

Hey forgot to ask what are you predicted and for what subjects if you don't mind
17. Predicted A*A*A in further maths, physics & welsh baccalaureate respectively. I have an A* from maths a level in year 12 too

sweet we have pretty much the same predicted grades are you applying for straight physics at imperial? i was thinking about it but they seem reallly harsh with the admissions haha
19. Is anyone on here applying for engineering?

i dont think so mate, hows your prep going and what are the cut offs for engineering usually is it same like for the physics students?:
