    I''m just really nrevous about those explaining ones - hate writing - i'm crap at it! - i wrote extra stuff just for the sake of it Hoping that i meet a llot of points on their markschemes - that is what i hate - they phrase it in such a way in the markschemes that you may not get a mark even if you know what the answer is

    Exactly! I was doing a past paper yesterday and I looked at the answers and I didn't get a lot of the marks, because I hadn't explicitly stated what they wanted, even though I had understood it

    phy4 hard in terms of unusual questions
    phy5 easy as the practical experiment = easy [high marks] and transformer bit was easy

    Yeah I agree!! PHY 4 had some weird explaining questions and I dunno wat they did with all those calculation questions!! They just forgot about it!!! it was exactly like that annoying PHY1 last week!! ALL weird and CONFUSING!
    PHY 5 was quite good I think!! quite a few gifts!!

    Opposite way around from me... I havent done transformers since GCSE X_X and so I didnt knwo what to write for most of that [6] marker... and the experiment I screwed up, I did it wrong and when I went back to it, time ran out... I didnt like that paper at all! But I found the PHY4 easier than I expected

    PHY4 was rock hard but PHY5 wasn't much better. Completely messed upthe first 2 ques on both papers and i don't think my Practical went to well, did it with a broken arm which was the most akward thing Ive done in my life. I really need to pull up on the Synoptic(which isn't rerally likely)
