    Last years additional physics grade boundaries were incredibly low. It was something like 28 marks for an A. I'm sure they will put them up this year
    yeahh i took that exam as a mock exam! I was really surprised at the low grade boundaries, that exam was quite easy...(i got 43 which was A* haha)

    hopefully they won't put the grade boundaries up too high

    I also have a feeling physics is gonna be real hard this year. Especially because the grade boundaries are usually about 40/39 for an A* but last year it was 42 so yknow they might wanna make it harder....

    i prefer harder exams and lower grade boundaries tbh
    I agree, I love it when they're harder because the grade boundaries are low - I usually do better on harder scientific questions than on dumbass risk or data questions

    I know how you feel, I also have a business exam in the morning and haven't revised one single bit looool it's only a multiple choice exam (edexcel)
    As for physics I also feel like I know everything whenever you feel nervous or stressed just reassure yourself you've done the best you could and I'm sure you'll do fine x

    I hope so. I kinda want the exam to be easy-ish despite knowing the grade boundaries will be higher cause physics stresses me out the most.

    I'm pretty sure that 80% of the C123 paper was stuff you didn't even need to revise grrrr, it makes me feel like all this revision is a waste! But oh well, I'm sure we'll do well regardless - good luck for tomorrow! I guess next time I'll be posting on this thread will be after the exam when I'm having a break down because it went so bad ahaha

    Wait... do we need to know about different types of energy (kinetic and all that) or not?

    Good luck guys! In p1 think about the importance of theories and if they give you a table with data, think about the trend in the values and what it shows overall, think does this increase or decrease support in hypothesis

    also think about perceived risk vs real risk (are the risks being overstated becausse of location or unfamiliarity)?

    think about renewable energy sources and how you need a mix of sources and the benefits of them, think of how groups like energy providers would think of this, or envirnomentalists

    CATEGORISE your six marks and PLAN it

    yeah, it's cool i guess, but the questions are never about space, its always about some stupid table of data which you have to give reasons for and stuff....
    I 100% agree with you.

    Unit 2 is Population dynamics, consuming resources, Globalisation, Development dilemmas, The changing economy of the UK, The challenges of an urban world.

    Unit 3 is basically unit 1 & 2 combined, you cannot revise for it, its just everything you have learned and applying your knowledge.
    nice! :-) seems interesting. are you doing a level geog?
