    Hey guys!!
    So next exam on wednesday is physics...
    any 6 marker predictions? Considering the amount of maths there was in biology and chemistry, i won't be surprised if 50% of the physics paper is maths....
    you were correct, most of the paper was maths

    it does exist but I did higher. I was just wondering cos I really don't remember a solar panel question so I think I must have missed it. how many other questions were on the same page as this question? and if so how many marks were they
    Just the one question and I believe it was 3 marks.
    What did you get for the 'peak' question regarding the Tsunami?

    you're probably right. maybe i'll get a mark for itfrom all the sciences which one did you find most difficult?i thought it was biology.Also what was the depth of the ocean?? I had no idea with that question
    I put 3000 for the depth, I thought biology was the easiest and physics the hardest

    No I meant were there any on the opposite side of the double page spread?

    And I got that the amplitude of the waves in the sea were low so the sailors didn't see the tsunami but the amplitude was high when it struck land

    Oh man that was retarded, the moment they asked me to draw a solar system was the moment I knew it would me messed up. At least my maths was on point, hoping to get 44 or so
    That solar system question had me closing the paper and reopening it. :coma:

    same!!!
    I said the reason was because the depth had to be between the depth of the two wavelengths that 180m/s was between.
    I kinda just rambled for that question

    I wish that I at least asked about the bio and chem papers, maybe I would've been prepared for Physics. :\

    What did u guys write about in question 1? Seriously, was that even in the curriculum?


    P.S.

    Sorry for the horrible grammar

    Apparently, it's 0.7 because when you divide the number by the number China needs you'll get 7/1000 (methinks) and then you multiply it by a 100 getting the percentage giving u 0.7.

    That was so hard I cried afterwards. I felt like nothing I had revised even showed up it was just a bunch of maths and asking about details of topics I didn't know (but I knew about the topic as a whole :/) The long answers were ok but I don't think I wrote enough detail on them. Didn't help that the kid next to me felt the need to sniff every 3 seconds, it was so distracting I couldn't concentrate. I hope there's low grade boundaries it was such an awful exam :/ Everyone was saying it was easy at school but I feel like people just say that to seem smart haha
    Yeah, it tested interpretation rather than knowledge. :banana2:
