15/20, you?
Is that accurate or just an estimate ? I got 14/20, To honest not sure how well I did in the Assignment and section 2. Hopefully we both did great with all that revision we both put in haha
2. (Original post by 12345kiran)
was the acceleration o the space craft 0.02 m/s^2
That's what I got
3. Can someone please tell me what our exam is actually out of?

I'm hearing something about scaling now....

How many marks would most likely be required for a C and an A grade.

Cheers.
4. For the question on will the heating element switch off, I said 9.7 V I thought it was a NPN transistor because I have never been taught this MOSFET thing or whatever it's called ;(

Have you got the answer for the 15 M.C and the reasoning behind it ?
Ball travels at a constant speed, then as it goes down the hill it begins to accelerate.

so pick the graph with constant speed first, then acceleration (going up)

Well based on the answers on here I got 15/20 but I probably got 14/20 cos I'm not sure about one of them. Anyway I'm sure our hard work paid off. I revised this course to shreds and if I get a C or fail I will be very disappointed

What question are you unsure about ?

Yeah I sadly thought it started at rest but it was from a certain point

It's out of 100 but they scale the mark down for section B from 90 to 60 marks. I'm not too sure about the process myself but this is what it says on the SQA course specifications i hope this doesn't affect our overall grade...
47/100 for a C
68/100 for an A

I have messaged him on Edmodo. I'll let you know if he gets back to me. If not I start school gain in a few days and I'll go to him then because I'm taking higher physics.

Edit: .Jeff458 do you have any idea how the scaling of marking works?

Thank you so much! I don't think I'd be able to wait until results day. 😓
12. .Jeff458 How did you do in Nat 5 Physics ? I'm not feeling too confident

Me neither its like almost 3 months away still :/ lol

He got an A obviously, cleverclogs

Oh they get your mark out of 90 for part B so for example 78/90 then just multiply it by 2/3 to make it out of 60 ie 52/60

I feel I have a slight chance of getting an A if the assignment was good. I don't know now after this whole scaling thing. Do they allow you to do Higher if you get a b or even a C ?

I heard him say he did get an A. I got a B last year but I should have got an A, just wasn't on my game that day haha.

Do you take Higher Physics ? What do you think of the course in comparison to Nat 5 ? Feedback is appreciated !

Yeah they do there was 3 people in my physics class that got Cs last year and the still did it but they all have either left or dropped the subject this year.

At my school they want you to get a B however luckily i have a good relationship with my teacher - he said he'll let me do it if i get a C looool
