    What are you chavs on about? That paper was so easy, like comparing it to the 2009/2010 past paper series it pretty much had the same questions...
    Also it sorts the idiots who take physics for a joke from the people who take maths and chemistry who would agree that was simpler than the crossword they put on the GCSE paper for us last year
    chav? you high maaaaaaaate? I was predicted A's for my mocks, seperating idiots who take physics for a joke? Dude I develop games and game for my life and for the past year I have given that up just to focus on my A levels. Also I do Computer Science as an AS and I haven't done QR code or anything of that sense so I don't see how a physics student should know about it -.-.

    I like your username. However, lynching is a bit excessive. Perhaps we should construct a paper of our own and make the writer take it.

    As someone who was a member of the highest placed state school senior maths challenge team, which finished 8th nationally, and also dropped one mark on question 1, I would have to argue yes, I do have some functional brain cells.
    I take it there were 8 teams?

    Sounds to me like, just like the rest of us, you are intelligent yet found this paper hard so "DeavyWeavy" or whatever his name is needs to get lost.

    300 I do believe it is out of every school in the UK that entered. Competing against schools like Eton etc.

    Sorry, do you not know any numbers higher than 8, or are you just lacking in brain cells?

    If anyone is worrying that some of really good students would have found it easier, I go to a grammar school and everyone found it hard, with lots not finishing!

    How's this?

    Dear OCR

    Thank you very much for what can only be described as the worst physics paper imaginable. Not only was the Paper completely irrelevant from the course, looking through the student room forums i can see that many others agree that you thoroughly deviated from the 'Physics' Element and left us with stupid questions on QR scanners. (Please Reference the page in YOUR text book that mentions QR scanners).


    As for whoever created this bundle of paper that shouldn't even be graced with the name 'Test'. They should have to personally mark every individual paper with their tongues.
    I hope you receive many more angry Emails and waste a year of your life learning the complete opposite of what you need, for the rest of your life.


    Sincerely


    An Angry Student.
