    No, you shouldn't be penalised again.

    I have evidence that I could get for you from past papers?
    So I would get the mark and that would be great!

    Thank you! Everyone is saying both papers were really easy (and originally I thought they were okay) but now I feel as though I have lost loads of marks. I got the reflection question wrong (although that was only 1 mark) and several others (like I seriously doubt I would have gotten 4 marks on the seat belt question)
    Literally same, I came out of the exam feeling relatively happy and sort of hyper and now I'm full of regret and stress in desperate hope I can get an A*, especially because I want to go on to do physics at higher

    can anyone write like a list of which questions were in the two papers? even if it is not a full paper? I have such a poor memory and I am stressing (although I realise I cannot change my answers but would like peace of mind) so would like to mentally check off where I lost marks.

    The exam went well but i didnt get a lot of sleep today so i couldnt thibk properly and at the gravitational PE question i went block and i was looking for an equation when there was no space for an equation, got it at the end though

    hey guys what about the last question about the trajectory on the range and height?

    i put 30 degrees and 45 degrees because they were the same shape and had twice the range or something like that. that was one weird question.

    Ahh thank god I was thinking I was the only one! Yeah, I think physics is my best science (im in year 10 so I haven't done most of chemistry and biology yet) so would really like an a* in it and was considering doing it at a level. I feel the same as you!

    I put 45 degrees, can't remember the explanation I put

    Does AQA deduct marks from you for doing anything wrong in the exam?

    Think you just had to do a trend between both range and degrees.

    Wow we are literally the same! Today we're my first actual GCSE exams because I'm in year 10 and I find biology the easiest but have gotten A*'s all year in physics so I'm hoping the mistakes I made will only be minor and my mind will have just exaggerated them 😅

    New it haha. Obviously take it away for wrong answer but what they're trying to say is that if you get one wrong and you use it for the next question and you've done the calculation wrong you gain a mark. Weird I know.

    Yeah, at my school we all have to take short course rs so I have already done half of that, but this is my first one that I actually care about (other than English as we have done 25% of the grade) I prefer biology but I don't actually think im that good at it aha. Which questions do you think you got wrong? or what answers did you get?

    Yeah somewhere but I have no idea how I got from 0.3 to 0.6 or how anyone got from 3.6 to 7.2, I've completely forgotten sorry :/
    Thanks anyway

    Will I still get a mark for 3600 though? It wasn't really a calculation question?

    On the P2 paper I think I got the top speed thing wrong (I got 17m/s) and I got the kinetic energy one wrong, I've probably made a few mistakes with the whole how science works stuff ad also the last comparison question. On P3 there's nothing in particular that I think I've definitely got wrong but just a few uncertainties like with the power range thing I got 0.125 which I don't think is right and also the pendulum experiment improvement question was a bit sloppy as well as the bus question. I find P1 super easy so I'm hoping for a high A* in that, also got 48 on the thermistor ISA paper so I hope that those will bring up any mistakes. What do you think you got right/wrong?

    Based on the ecf rule, you'll get the first bit wrong but not the 2nd time.

    kinetic energy= 1/2 x mass x velocity squared
    So its 1/2 x 0.05 x 12^2= 3.6 J

    Ek= Ep

    Ep= mass x gravitational field strength x height
    3.6= 0.05 x 10 x height
    u needed to find the height so

    Height= 3.6/(0.05x10)
    = 7.2m

    Hope that makes sense
    THANK YOU! I got 3.6j but I just didn't know that the kinetic energy was the same as the grav energy. So I got the first question right but not the next two.
