    i can't stop doubting myself about whether or not i covered all the points in those two CCD questions in the astrophysics section of unit 5 physics....

    when it asks to describe the part of the CCD where the image is formed, it means the silicon chip right? or is it talking about th electrodes connected to it, or something else completely?! or the pixels?

    I think it's best to check Track first, that way you get the initial burst of emotion out of the way away from everyone. If friends fail and I do well then I don't want to make them feel worse by seemingly bragging, and, conversely, if I don't do well then I want to be prepared for when I open my results.
    I guess that is a good idea Yeah, that's one of the many downsides to results day: You usually have the ones who do quite well when their friends do badly and vice versa. It's hard to console them - there was quite a lot of that at GCSE. I would like to mentally prepare myself.. but the only problem is that, if track updates at 8, I'm already going to be at college then as I have to go in early as my parents are at work and I don't live in the town.

    Ah that's alright :rofl: :rofl: Ooohhh yay well done! Yeah my teacher was saying that she marked it and then it was marked again by someone else who is VERY experienced with marking this subject and it stayed the same! I got an A, but I was quite surprised as tbh I struggled quite a lot! :rofl:

    What did you do your report on?
    I did mine on the effects of complex carbohydrates and lipid consumption on the body because I want to go into dietetics! How about you? I struggled loads too, I hated EPQ😂😂

    Wow... that's a lot to do! Ah I chose the normal kind of topic :rofl: I ended up doing about to what extent American Serial Killers were influenced by their past experiences etc. I think all of my research was online as I couldn't find any books.

    Hey, yeah that's what I talked about! And for the second part I just talked about how photons striking the pixels cause an image to formed. Hopefully that's right...

    I'm doing an AS in Creative Writing. It's an extra curricular thing. We got one session a week after school where we learnt bits and bobs and then we did coursework and an exam. I'm worried about results day, as I'm in Y10, going into Y11, and everyone else is going to be in sixth-from. I feel like I'm going to be in the way. No-one in my school has ever got an A in this course at AS, so I would be happy with a B, but would be somewhat disappointed with anything less. I'm really stressed about it now.

    How did you find F325? It really felt more difficult than the 2015 one! ((

    Me too, that may be another mark or two down the drain... CCD asked about the structure (silicon chip with indentations/wells) and then a basic applied explanation of electron liberation via photons from potential wells. (I think anyway).

    I found unit 4 quite easy and unit 5 okay (easier than 2015) but made a f*ck ton of silly mistakes.

    Shout out if you agree that universities should have access to the UMS scores which can be an extra factor in consideration in deciding who to take from someone who narrowly missed the offer. As I personally think its unfair if someone who missed their offer by 1 UMS mark gets rejected from their uni whereas if the uni had access to the UMS they may have taken that person still as it was a very very very small miss.

    I agree. I think that some posters on the thread made out that it was one of the easiest ever but I didn't think so at all. Certainly wasn't as hard as the 2013 ones but was quite similar to January and June 2012.
