i got a negative -0.036 but i left it at that because i didnt know what to do
Fair enoug

Fair enoug
did you get that gradient , if yes how many marks will i get ?
3. Did anyone get B E1 to E2 for the UV photon

I got something like that, you should get 1 mark because without finding gradient you cant do anything else, i will be surprised if you didn't ...
5. Did anyone get 23.9 for one of the answers (maybe it was Young's modulus but i don't remember)

Edit: lol i thought i was being smart by extending the line through the 'y axis' which apparently wasn't the y axis.

There goes my D to an E

Yeah! It was the only one for which had greater energy than the E3 to E2 I worked out all the values to be sure :P

What did the diagram look like again D was E0-E1 C was E1-E2 B-E2-E3 what was the other one I cant remember exactly was there an E4?

Oh yeah silly me the option answer was D
Basically the ground state level to the one above it was around 8V?

I estimated the wavelength of ultraviolet to be about 670nm and used delatE=hc/lamda to find an estimate for the difference in eV. Pretty sure it turned out to be E1 to E2

I think so but wasn't E3-E1 that of a visible photon

Was that the SECOND smallest gap by any chance
12. The put the one that the biggest gap (ground state to the one above the ground state), I cant remember the numbers am I right?
13. What was the answer for the corresponding acceleration time graph for the given velocity time graph? I choice the one that looks like a graph of y = 1/x (which I think was D), but I think it was wrong, because the velocity time graph was way to steep for that (the integral for 1/x is lnx, which is pretty unsteep). So was there an option of an acceleration time graph with a constant straight line that had a negative gradient? Because if there was, then it was probably that one.
14. For the Iv graph did anyone get A where it showed conductance only after a certain voltage/current

Is that the one which was falling?
Because if it was then it was definitely D because if an object falls then acceleration is always 9.8

Full unofficial mark scheme anyone? I've think I did well on paper one, but I mucked this one up. What do you think about grade boundary over both papers? approx 110/140 for an A?
2015 it was 97/140 for an A
2014 - 109/140
2013 - 108/140
2012 - 105/140
2011 - 101/140

so probably around 100-110 for an A but you can't really tell since its the first year

I put that because all of the other ones showed acceleration increasing or staying constant with time

Compared to previous years its a lot harder mostly because of the unknown timings of the exam.
Personally I'd be surprised if it was greater than 100 for an A

Well that's a relief. I hope you're not trolling
20. Did anyone put A for the IV graph of the mcq where it increases after a certain voltage and then Figure 6 is a straight line so it better than Figure 5 or anything along those lines
