    Looking at the unofficial mark scheme I got around 34-40 which could be anywhere from a mid c to a low a if you needed 41 in jan for an a which was in my opinion a slightly easier paper. Honestly Physics at times makes subjects like maths and biology look like media studies, kudos to anyone who gets an a.

    NONO NO NO NO NO NO NO! and no again! i mean you are probably right, seeing as i have the same debate with my maths class of 9 people and all say maths is easier other than me! i love maths but make too many stupid mistakes, did you take m1? that might make you change your mind if you sat it last monday

    lower I think and hope so because this paper had a few questions that would typically be the last question in a given paper, but don't quote me on that i'm not much of an expert on how grade boundaries work

    I pray for lower/the same! I am so desperate to get a goodish grade! I get As at home and when I do past papers and then when I actually do the exams I get Ds gahh! Thanks for answering me

    did you have to work out the gradient? i thought i should do that, but theyve never asked for that before... so i used suvat. v=u+at but my answer was 33... :/
    This is what I did. I don't see why we couldn't use this method..?

    I used that too! I got (-) 37 which seem like a large deceleration....I used a=v-u/t will I get any working marks?

    I actually got 40/60 in the January mock without prep. and definitely found this harder, it would be a crime if the grade boundaries aren't at least the same as the January exam.
    This 100%. January paper was way easier, in my opinion. But I have a feeling the gb will increase.
