    What unit are you working towards because I know one of the isa is about Simple Harmonic Motion.
    The other one has to do with unit 5 i think

    I can't really remember it!! It was just so hard though. There are a lot of questions on uncertainty.

    Everyone in my class said it was ridiculously difficult and the vast majority of my year got Us. I'm predicted an A and I think I got a B or a C (can't remember). My teacher complained about it to the board at a meeting he went to. I found the questions were really obscure, badly phrased and there was a question on logs which was awful. I was the only person in my year to get any marks on that question, including other further mathematicians. I'm sitting the other ISA in Feb.
