    ADVICE:

    I personally would start revision now, even if its 30 minutes a day it will just reduce you with the amount of workload and revision you will have to do as the exam gets closer especially if you are resiting any exams!

    If you want any help just post a question here and I or someone else will help!

    Finally Good luck to all of you!

    Also sitting this. I've just finished the content ahead of the rest of my class over easter so as soon as we've completed a mock paper next week, I'll be starting past papers.

    How are you finding the course? Unit2 can be tricky

    Don't really like sensing or imaging, but I'm not really struggling with the quantum part, so all in all, it's not too bad.

    I have mixed feelings. I don't think it's going to be a 'normal' exam. It will be just as bad as g491, or it will be much easier, as to compensate for the ridiculous g491 paper

    For 3 why does the mark scheme use 120x10-6?

    I think we're all going to need the best of luck and hope for a nicer paper than the first...

    I'm going to start revising for this once Chemistry is done with on Tuesday, hopefully a week is long enough!

    G492 is easier but it can be tricky at times

    We've done M1 and M2 in maths, so I'm hoping I know enough to be able to just not revise the whole Motion section, that should free up my time a bit

    1 milligram = 0.001 grams = 10^-6 kgs

    What do people think of the pre-release? what kind of questions will they ask?

    Absolutely dreading this exam. We've literally been taught nothing. I could manage the mechanics paper as I do maths and we have a mechanics paper in maths so it linked well into the physics mechanics. But I know nothing about this exam. So much so that I literally stop going to lessons. Just hoping that luck is on my side and I can pull it off somehow against the odds.
