AQA Physics A : Turning Points in Physics watch

1. how was that paper? The last question was so gay, i think i only got 2/7 for it
2. i thought the turning points paper was ok actually, is it the last question where you had to derive that formula and find the specific charge?

im not sure whether i explained everything correctly, there was a lot more explaining to do than i thought i would have to,

i didnt enjoy the first question though, i drew a straight line graph, but afterwards my teacher said it should have been curved.

what did you think about the multiple choice and the waves module?i really struggled on the last question about nuclear stuff, i didnt get an answer!

I just did the turning point. Did you get the proton rich nuclide decaying? that was nice. HOW ABOUT THE DEFLECTION OF THE ELECTRON? for 4 marks, i didnt know what to write. I just wrote that electric field exerts a force on the electron, that its attracted to the positive enough as its negative, and the electrostatic forces do so. i didnt know wha tthey wanted. what did you write?
4. i wrote how the componant of velocity perpendicular to the plates is increases because of the electric field, and the horizontal velocity is constant therefore it has a parabolic path.

Damnit it. I know ive lost 6 marks on the last question, 2 on the electron question, 2 on the graph, 2, elsewhere. Thats 28/40 someone said 75% is an A, but i need like a strong A. That just means i gotta work dman hard for the synoptic
6. im not looking forward to the synoptic, its evryting in one long paper!
but AS is still in my head because i resat particles and mechanics in january, so i can still remember most of it.
its just relating it to all this years stuff aswell that is sometimes confusing
