    Guys and girls, here are some things you need to remember for the Physics exam tomorrow: (It's a sorta guide/check)

    Using and applying formulae:
    - Know what formula to use: Relate different information given by the question into a formula which can be used.
    - Conversions: Remember simple conversions which will give you a mark if you correctly convert, however lose you several if you wrongly convert, (i.e. 1000g must be converted into 1kg.) However, some situations require you to change the rules so to speak: For example, the standard unit for time is "seconds (s)" but for finding kWh you must keep the units in hours / convert to hours.

    Clarity of answeres:
    - Don't be too long winded; be consice, answer the question, don't give extra information if there are only one or two marks up for grabs.
    -Think what you're going to write through you head, then think it through again in fluent English, so you are not scribbling things out and re-writing them, thus wasting time and space (This has been a big problem for me, and can lead to vagueness/being unclear).

    Time organisation:
    -Most importantly, you know this: Go back to the harder questions at the end, be systematic if you can as leaving too many questions out can be stressful towards end and can cause mistakes.

    Good luck everyone, I really hope you all get the grades you've worked hard for and are anticipating
