    Do ALL past papers twice as practice makes perfect.

    Also it's definitely worth doing the questions on the following link:
    questions with answers:

    as practice makes perfect!

    Make sure you UNDERSTAND the stuff. I do not create much notes for physics and just focus purely on the practice as it's quite mathematical.

    the below links can help:

    What ever it is...you should rush...rush from the moment the paper is given.... don't look back...just rush....just get the gist of the intro or rubric of each question..they usually give dumb stupid crappy intro that has nothing or won't help you to answer. Just do paper as fast as you can...all difficult questions keep for the end

    .Unit 1 thought me this!

    It wasn't anything to do with physics it was just maths, just adding and timesing etc. Did anyone get the " A small mass is dangling from a string at 7' from the vertical show the cars travelling at 1ms"

    I don't get it it's from the january 2009 paper and i'm so blah, confused. could someone please explain?

    A student looks at the sunlight reflected off a puddle of water. She puts a polarising (Polaroid) filter in front of her eye. As she rotates the filter the puddle appears darker then lighter.
    Explain this observation.

    Its simple addition and subtraction. Since its a parallel circuit the current has split up. If we start off with 30mA, 20mA goes towards the top then obviously 10mA goes to the bottom. And If we know 20mA is flowing at the top then 15gmA goes downwards then 5mA will continue going forward. For I3 however much current we started with must be the same we ended with.
