    Is this cos it dragged your average down to below an A? Because the A* only depends on the two exams!

    What? Are you sure. I thought it depends on the whole of A2 the two exams and the coursework.

    I don't know our teacher hasn't told us... I did a practice one that got 29 but it was only half done so this one is probably somewhere above that...
    What grade did you get? No one at my school gets A*s for the coursework wowow

    I got a B. 31/40. My teacher is the harshest marker ever and an official for edexcel. We didnt even get told what the practical was before he day. Me and my mates all made notes and had a group on whastapp but i just screwed up all the last analysis marks. Which cost me the A*. My teacher writes edexcel physics questions!

    Spoke to my teacher and it was just a misunderstanding of the phrase "when the switch is closed"
    I thought it meant the act of physically closing the switch, which would generate an EMF. However, it only meant that the switch is not open.

    Deceptive question but pretty nice if you understand what is going on. With all these field questions it is the same thing over and over again. Just different versions lol.

    It is the 'amount' of flux is the way I like to think about. Or Net flux. Although i wouldnt use that. A definition of product of turns and flux gets full marks in this prticular case.

    I get that but not what flux is and why it's relevant to EMF! Guess I have to wait until uni to find that stuff out!
