Let's get physical

Well, Paper 3 was a doozy. The question is: have you finished A-level Physics or has A-level Physics finished you?

Just when you thought the first two papers were as tough as it could get, Paper 3 defied physics and came out in full force.

It couldn’t possibly be any harder than Paper 1, could it?

It was long and hard, to say the least

The highs were high...and the lows were low

Relax, you've finished physics now (unless it finished you first!)

That was the worst paper I’ve ever done like I just skipped through all of section A. Turning points was a gift thank god

I’m gonna be saying goodbye to my unis because section A was impossible and I gained max 5 marks.
