    Frequency was 6.0 HZ

    Speed was 4.5x10^3

    lambda=c/f=4.5x10^3/6.0=750m

    Ohh trust me you haven't it just seems like you're being a bit full of yourself, you sound like one of them posh school kids , whom I hate so very much. And I've been putting my head down hope full marks is round 60.
    Full marks will probs 70 :-) like I said, it was not a difficult paper... Absolute beauty of a paper in fact!

    I think everyone misunderstood the last question on the paper. It was white light passing through a single slit. Look at the textbook page 202, figure 2. Apparently no one here realized it.

    Was this 2 marks??.. if so could you kindly allocate where the marks would be awarded. I use c=flambda , rearranged to make lambda the subject.. but i got 7.5x10^-4.. how did you get 750m from that was the speed not given in m/s?

    The highest for 120ums since june09 has been 62 raw marks. I think 120 ums will be 65/70 at max. People doing it for the first time will not have found it as easy as the retakers

    I don't think it will be as high as 65, have you seen the amount of people dropping marks on silly errors! This paper was littered with traps!

    If we're lucky we might get one for rearrange it properly etc, they are generous sometimes. Ah well, whatever happened, happened

    JUST TO GET PEOPLES ATTENTION !!!

    I think everyone misunderstood the last question on the paper. It was white light passing through a single slit. Look at the textbook page 202, figure 2. Apparently no one here realized it.

    EDIT: It wasn't a easy question.

    Exaggeration? :P Natural Sciences (Which I'm applying for) has 4 per place.
    Wow, that is a hell of a lot lower. I firmed my Bristol offer for Maths, and that had 14 places per applicant according to their website. I would only assume Oxbridge would be higher.
    Perhaps Maths gets more applications?
