    I think you can re take however many times you want but if I were you I would work as hard as possible so that you don't have to retake next year along with all your other exams. especially as they won't be January exams, re takes plus A2 will be a lot to take on. good luck

    I love you. I was looking for that paper everywhere. I could only find the mark scheme (which can easily be found with a quick Google search).

    I am retaking it. I got a B last time which is shocking for me. I got nearly 100% UMS in G482, and ~82% in the A2 papers. I think I need 4 more marks overall to leave college with an A in Physics.

    That Paper was mostly definitions and explanations, lets hope we all get a nice paper for the retake aswell as some nice maths equations to solve! Is anyone else really worried about the retake and also G482 as Waves are my worst enemy at the moment.
