    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 waffled a bit over what was needed for this two I talked a little about PWs but I think that that was limited to the 3 marker.

    I think for two marks:
    -Regular array of
    -Silicon picture elements (pixels)

    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.
    That sounds really interesting! I was going to do something like that 😜

    It's the third Thursday of August. Don't know why but it sucks results day this year is later than last year's. I would have definitely preferred the opposite.

    Last year it was second Thursday in the month, this year its third (the reason presumably that they wouldn't have had time to mark it all if it had been the 11th?)

    Important things in this country always happen on a Thursday (elections for example) again don't know why.

    Maybe it's tradition. Last year it was the 13th so surely two days isn't a big difference? They've finished marking our papers ages ago.

    I think its normally the 3rd thursday but last year they decided the 3rd thursday was too late and then would have resulted in very late gcses on the 4th thursday so they changed the week as an exception last year

    The 2015-2016 academic year ran a week later than 2014-2015.

    Exams finished up around June 24 (with good old D2) last year, compared to June 29 this year.

    So this puts results day in its normal place (ish!) 😊

    I'm pretty sure the last exam is always on a Thursday too so it might've been earlier...

    Actually last exam was 30th this year (I sat it!!!) but I agree that's about right.
