    Questions in the recent edexcel papers are not that hard really...
    I just hope they give us enough time....I screwed up the physics 1 paper short of a full mark purely due to time ( I had to tumble through the last pages lol).....but i guess that my fault since i get all panicky and stuff towards the end of the session...
    Our school gives us much much harder and longer papers and thats where the panic mentality comes from....


    I hope that the paper will all be about radioactivity lol
    Wow..1 mark short of getting full marks! I wish i had a natural Physics brain, i have to work soo hard just to get a B. I find all types of questions really hard, even the ones in the books.

    I'm quite worried because there aren't any past papers for this unit. I have no idea what to expect.

    Radioactivity questions would be great..just about alpha, beta and gamma. I would definitenly pass that exam. :p:

    I personally feel that the past paper pack I linked you to is all one needs for this syllabus. No other past papers are needed.

    Its about quality not quantity.

    But seriously, just write down as much as you can think of (trying not to contradict yourself or sounding silly) for each point in the marking scheme.

    I did my plan yesterday and i only wrote two sides of a page.
