    Oh? We do?
    I'm fairly certain we do, If we don't then I'm absolutely screwed.

    Actually its worth asking, are you talking about the retake of PHYA1 or the first (and hopefully only) attempt at PHYA2.

    I think the retake date for PHYA1 is 20th May and the date for PHYA2 is 5th June.

    Well someone here just said it was 8 weeks, so that sounds a lot better!

    My friend said it was 5 weeks away, and I didn't bother checking it for myself -.-

    I never did a module in January so I'm doing both of them in June :eek:

    Ah yes raiden was just about spot on. It will be 8 weeks to the PHYA2 exam on Friday, and there's about 6 weeks to the PHYA1 exam.

    I forgot that some people don't sit the exam in January so in that case, may be (mass x acceleration) be with you, young padawan

    and the mass x velocity ofc

    Oh yes, we can't forget that. And we must hope that no one encounters any mR, (where m is the coefficient of friction, of course).

    Well, since acceleration takes into account the velocity :P

    forgot to mention, momentum must be in direction of high marks always remember direction of motion

    Got an A in this in January.

    Here is a Tip for anyone studying it. Someone told me in January on this Forum and its the only reason I got an A. Otherwise I probably would have got a D.

    STOP READING. ONCE YOU KNOW THE MATERIAL YOU KNOW THE MATERIAL.

    90% of your work should be doing Questions. The only thing you should be "revising" is the longer style answers.

    How can you know what your weak at if your not testing yourself?

    I really hope that helps someone and saves them any surprises.

    I think making notes on the more theoretical sections does help, obviously a lot less for unit 2, but waves has a lot to it well that's what worked for me anyway.

    As for questions I agree lots of time doing questions is the key! Probably why I ended up getting the old spec physics revision guide, calculations book etc if you're running out of questions to do then you're doing well

    It really depends on how everyone as a whole found it I guess It's hard to tell, grade boundaries keep jumping around
