Has anyone got an answer to the first question, just out of interest? To me it sounded like we were disproving Newton's third Law, I just sat there thinking the student was right and it was some sort of evil twisted trick question. Ik it probably has a logical solution but no clue what.

Just babbled about extrapolating the graph since a gdt and y-int were given a val of min temp can be deduced by continuing the graph and obvs you cant have -ve volume so this must be the min temp possible
I said that if you were to keep drawing the graph in the negative x direction T would reach -273C at when volume=0 which is equal to 0K which is zero absolute temperature and you cannot have a Temperature lower than 0K. I'm sure in the question it refereed to absolute temperature so thats what I wrote

Is an A* an average of 90% across both papers or is 90% required on each one

Which part are you saying yes to?
All A2 units

so ISA G484 and G485
and yes is an average across them all
So you could get 85% and 95% and still get A*

Apparently there's a teacher who's gonna do it

L'Evil Fish said earlier that they were watching this thread, which I assume means they have a TSR account so you could PM them
Thanks, found it.
Got about 45 marks based on it so not as bad a so thought

I really don't see how this exam could have higher grade boundaries than last year.

How did you find it overall?
I think I made a lot of silly mistakes and stuff led with the 6 marker at the end of Q1

Hardly any of the standard questions came up.. What are OCR playing at? Literally.. I feel like 75% of the G484 specification wasn't even touched upon in that exam.. Where were all the definitions for additional marks? Where was Brownian motion? Kinetic theory of gases & assumptions? Experiments? CIRCULAR MOTION?

Ah I'm hoping they make the bigger unit easier since its worth more.. Seriously can't get over how every single OCR science exam has been a mockery.. One or two are fine to test your understanding.. But every one of them doesn't really give many people a chance
