    Do you find the past papers really help your learning or are you just doing it to test yourself?
    Both, because sometimes I feel I know a topic really well but then past papers reveal weaknesses which I wasn't aware of...and it also helps me to understand what the questions were asking for when I go through the mark scheme

    Does swapping the polarity of the DC supply mean changing the direction of the current?

    Yes, I think so, because switching the polarity would mean the magnetic field direction is reversed, so that switches the direction of the current :cool:

    I've revised the first half of P4 and the first half of P6, although I was planning to do all of P6 today but I spend too long in trying to understand and assimilate the first half, that I thought I would be overloading my brain if I did the rest today.

    Tomorrow, I'll have to do the rest of P6, and P4 and then spend the morning on monday to do P5. :cool:

    Sounds good! Don't cram too much but don't leave it too late... it's quite hard to balance between the two :lol:

    I've revised all of P4 and I'm just starting P5 now. I revise slowly though because I do questions on what I learned and mark it too so it's really stuck in my mind

    It's annoying because I have Geography on Monday so I have to balance my revision. Physics is your last one, is it not?

    I use the specification as a checklist, go through the checklist, see what I know, recall information and then read through the relevant topic in my revision guide. Then to finish off the day, I'm doing 2/3 past papers from the old syllabus :cool:
