    i think conservation of energy and momentum questions will come up. probably have to explain how it applies in the example.

    how can you know, from your past experience or sixth sense??? I did a few synoptic question, and I feel energy is quite important though.

    Conservation laws and fields seems to be the key. Unfortunately this covers pretty much everything.

    They do seem pretty weired, its really sucky! I keep writing about something completely different to what its asking I cant find any links to any past papers but they let us see some at school, it all seems to be work energy and power and some of the more baisic electricity stuff V = IR, Q = IT and all that sort of stuff. Its just all the writing i can't cope with!

    My school gave us each five past papers, with mark schemes. I've gone through them and made notes on the stuff I got wrong (i.e. all the wordy bits :p: ). I've attached them to this post, if you're interested.

    Endeavour is right, conservation laws and fields seem to come up a lot - problem is, that covers so much. I'd say the key to the exam, though, is to write as much as you can for every wordy question - for example, as an answer to one question I wrote that you should use the left-hand rule to work out the direction of something, but I could have got two (!) more marks by writing down what the fingers and thumb each represented. Really irritating!

    Yea, my physics teacher told us that when answering a wordy question and decide to put an equation in, always write what each symbol represents.
