    I was wondering if there is anyone on this board that has previously done a A2 physics practical. If so what would they recommend doing to improve their chances of attaining a higher mark on the practical.

    Also, Is there anyone else that is going to be doing A2 practical this summer if so what would they recommend doing to improve their practical skills.

    Yeh my board is aqa B. But I am taking the a2 pratical in june. Theres very little you can practice for them though. Just do past papers and the experiment if ur college or u have the stufff but its very unlikely that the same one will come up. Basically learn using logs is a key and worth up to 10 marks. And laws are also useful, but most other stuff u will have learnt from A2 theory and AS praticals.

    I havent decided yet if im a fan of the praticals. Cause i thought i did well in the as in june last year but didnt so retook it in jan. Its the kinda paper thats very easy to muck up on! But if all going well and u get some experiments you like, it should be easy marks.
