    Hey, TSR .

    Okay, I'm doing Higher Physics and we have a prelim on the 10th of Feb - and I'm worrying like heck. Were only being tested on Unit One and Unit 2 up to Inverting Op-Amps..but I cannot do it. I really think I'm going to fail and I'm really, really worrying about it - would anyone be willing to become an online tutor kinda thing for me? It would just be for going through things (i.e explaining things in a way my blonde head can understand, and past paper questions)? Positive rep would be your payment, every day
    or something.

    Thank you so much!

    Ah, I can't do higher physics either!

    But if you have any tricky concepts, I wouldn't mind trying to help?

    Oh no, don't feel stupid, it's what this place is here for!

    For some reason, our unit 2 is everyone else's unit 3 so my prelim's gonna be on Unit 1 (Kinematics and all that) and from waves and light up to emission spectra in unit 3. So I won't be able to help you with unit 2 but if you have any unit 1 questions I can try and help you with them.

    Thats quite strange. Its fine, though! Once I have mastered the Electronics, you can teach me Unit 3 XD
    Thank you. I will PM yooou if I need any help <3

    Yep :yep:

    Finding it tricky this year, which is a shame cause I really liked it last year.

    Unit 2 is just like "what". I think if I actually just sit down and revise I should be ok....

    Yeah, SG was a breeze compared to this. I can grasp most of Unit 1 well, its just Unit 2. I'm sitting there like 0_o:confused: - pretty much.

    Cool, just installing Acrobat so I can open the paper and answers. Don't feel ashamed about posting problems on the public forums though, it's helpful to others who might have the same problem and they can learn from it.

    The Higher Physics course is really poor. There's nothing particularly interesting in it, other than parts of Unit 3. I actually think Advanced Higher is far easier (although that's perhaps because I find it more interesting).

    Post away with any questions that are causing problems.

    Yeah, I found SG quite interesting - but Higher is boring, thats probably why I dont understand it, because I'm not enjoying it.

    Thank you, I will!:yep:

    I've got four prelims before physics so I'm not doing too much just yet.

    I agree with higher being much more boring than SG though.

    Aw, well, our Maths ones later than everything else - but I have English & Human Bio on the same day, the 4th of Feb. Then Physics on the 10th, I think. Art on the 11th.

    Yeah, if you don't enjoy it then it certainly makes life a bit more difficult.

    I agree, Unit three is the one I find the most interesting; I think the SQA could try to revise the course.
    They are planning on revising it. They want to bring in an Astronomy Unit and some Relativity apparantly.
