    I think for that, they'll ask which one is the most sensitive.

    This guy made questions that could possibly come up for our section C in June, so have a look. There's no mark scheme, however you could show your teachers and hopefully they'll be willing to help you, which is what i'm going to do . When you go onto that website, make sure you scroll right down to the bottom.

    I think there is quite a lot to read for some questions but a lot of time can be saved from doing the mechanics question because they tend to mostly involve calculations which you can do fairly quickly.

    Yea, the mechanics ones are fine if you have done M1

    I think that the quantum aspects of this unit are hard to grasp, I find it really boring too

    The June 2012 paper was challenging

    I'm ok with the mechanics bit of it but the quantum bit really gets me. I've been doing some papers and been getting a B. I'm not expecting anything more than a B in exam too, tbh.

    Do you think it's a real advantage to actually 'do' the trolley experiment in the Lab? as they suggest? What inisght would this give as this example is one we've all read about and studied before?
