    Overall I'm guessing it'll be 55-56 for an A, the paper was really quite nice.

    Agree, although I wouldn't be surprised it was 57. I did say in an earlier post 55-58 but 58 just seems too high regardless of how "easy" the paper is

    I know last year's paper was harder than this year's one but you could get an A with just 49 last year, surely they can't bump it up by 8 marks? I don't recall this ever happening in the past. I am hoping 54-55 to be the A threshold which is still a 5-6 marks jump from last year.

    Neither do I but I've seen the boundaries as high as 57 (June 13). I think June 13 and 16 are roughly comparable in difficulty, maybe June 13 is a little more difficult but at the same time, remember most people doing this exam would have been resitting it. Not to mention, generally people get better at exams the longer the spec has been in place (we had the most past papers to practice with)

    But hey, I wouldn't complain if it was 55 for an A!

    Yea coming back to my point from last night. There's no 'buffering' for us this year.

    how many marks was the part of the question where the answer was 228v worth and also the power one after that and the final internal resistance question?

    Yes!!!!! I got 89 electrons could you remind me what the question before it was?

    Forget about question 6 for a minute, everyone got 89 electrons in question 1 right? And im hoping no one accidentally worked out specific charge for the question before it

    i think they asked the charge of the nucleus so 92 x 1.6......etc

    I got 3 electrons...Because I thought it looked easy and didn't pay attention...

    You would still get method marks though
