    I do not think that is true because the intensity is so low so it is practically harmless. Also microwaves are not examples of ionising radiation. On top of this the only risk I got was that it can cause the water molecules in our brain to vibrate and cause damage, anyone else get that?

    no they can damage body cells too! Can change DNA do cause mutations etc...
    Else we wouldn't protect ourselves from microwave radiation from microwaves lol

    Just wondering how many of you guys actually completed all the questions?
    I left the last question out, I literally had no time :/
    don't worry buddy...I am with u... U only missed the last question I have missed one of the 6 marks one... And 2 or 3 questions worth 2 marks literally didn't had the freaking time.... And there was nothing on the paper I have revised all the parallax or the theory... Or the ozone layer etc....
    I literally failed the core science I can tell

    Nope that's just a myth teachers say haha. If you search OCR grade boundaries 2014 on google and click the first link and find physics GCSE then you'll find the grade boundaries x

    The harder the exam, the lower the grade boundaries x

    These are rough estimate when doing practice tests in class, the real grade boundaries are dependent on the results of the population, and a certain percentage have to get a certain grade such as an A*. Generally the more people who score higher marks cause the grade boundaries to be higher whilst if the population score low on the exam then the grade boundaries will be lower as a certain percentage still need to get each grade. Hope that cleared things up for you! :-).

    EDIT - didn't realize someone had responded, apologies!

    That paper today was awful for me though, literally stared at the paper for half the exam panicking although managed to answer most of the questions bar from a few.

    You cannot say that the fact sediments are found on two continents supports his theory because sediments can be formed anywhere. If the question said the SAME sediments were found then THAT supports his theory
