    Tell me about it mines at 1:30.
    I just got a call for a phone interview whilst I was revising this morning, I might as well have screamed down the phone and hung up :l
    I have a feeling this one is going to be harder then the January one, although I am much better prepared now.
    I doubt that it will be harder. Jan was hard enough because it was only 42 for an A I think OCR will try and make it easier.

    I thought the grade boundaries were normal, around 80% for an A, 42/60 is only 70%. My teacher thought the paper wasn't too bad.
    Although it would've been nicer if they did put the grade boundary lower, make my crappy D a C aha

    But lets hope for an easier one, without them putting the grade boundaries too high.

    I think the june papers are written before the actual January exam so maybe it won't be easier

    Maybe they purposely made all January exams horrific, because everyone government-related seems to hate them

    I retract my earlier statement.. I thought that was atrocious.. although I did manage to get the F=ma kinetic energy question using v2 = u2 + 2as

    I don't think it was that as you needed to use F=ma and Work Done = Force and distance

    Missed the last page out But for the questions i did i think it was ok. For proving KE = 1/2mv^2 i replaced F with ma in work done = fx and replaced x with speed x time so Work done = mavt but didnt get much further than that
