    Hope it comes up, I love waves.
    a nice juicy 6 marker on stationary waves would be ideal.

    Flipping hell, if that came up I think I'd die of hapiness.

    I agree that one of the wave ones seems like the most likely option. However, it seems that this year the examiners are trying to be creative across all the boards, so thus far I have found that "expect the unexpected" is a phrase to live by (I mean, look at the six-marker for unit 1). SO... the real question is what would you least expect?
    what was the unit 1?

    Not gonna happen. It's appeared as a six-marker twice already, so sadly, the probability of it showing up for a third time is tiny.

    what was the unit 1?
    Differences and similarities between hadrons and leptons.

    what is the definition for Ultimate tensile stress?

    I heard its the stress needed to break a material, but when I look on some graphs, it shows the material extending after the ultimate tensile stress point is reached, how can it extend if its already broken?

    That doesn't seem too difficult. As long as you know about the different particle families, it shouldn't of been too challenging. Nevertheless, a new question is always an intimidating one.

    I know!! I just had my chemistry, bio was yesterday, and I feel as though my mind has been wiped.

    Ooh there's a past question on this already? Didn't realise that, haven't done all the papers
    HAHA! There was yes! It took me dam 10 mins to find to find that question just now. It was on jan 11 Q 1bi.

    I know, I quite liked it. The only thing was, that it was completely different from the previous unit 1 6-marker questions. Just saying that it's possible they might try to pull something like that tomorrow too.

    This can only go badly. I know none of it and when I get something wrong on a paper I can't understand where I've gone wrong.

    I need a miracle, and I need an A.

    same, unfortunately it came up on jan 2013 so no chance there i bet it will be on polarisation or something else i have no clue about

    what would you least expect? I think it could be something to do with waves, but mechanics or young modulus could pop up again.
