    Why is there no Unit 5 paper for Jan 2010, Jan 2011, Jan 2012 and Jan 2013?

    Edexcel Chemistry has Unit 5 papers for every series apart from Jan 2010 (which is fair because any class couldn't have possibly finished the entire unit 5 by January of the first year of the spec), but why does AQA Physics have no January papers for unit 5?

    Im guessing they wanted to stop people from finishing all the course in january/stop people from being able to have 2 attempts at unit 5

    Anyone else prefer unit 4, for some reason unit 5 just isn't clicking for me. It just feels like a lot.

    I agree unit 4 seems way more easier to learn. To be fair chapter 1 and 2 of physics unit 5 are alright thermal and nuclear. Its just applied physics i dislike it.

    It should be released in no time on AQA website...sometime in May. Edexcel June 2015 papers have been released recently, so I think AQA should also soon....
