    Do you think they'll have one of those questions where it asks you why scientists can't advise on matters of opinion?

    They always have them, just answer the question using common sense, two to three easy marks

    Don't you just draw a line through the top of the lens to the principal focus and straight through the middle of the lens (for a converging lens)?

    This is my first post here and I honestly feel hopeless after AQA C2/ C3 paper on 15th May.
    Just want to know what everyone is revising for AQA P2 / P3 exam on 19th?

    You should probably revise all of it just to avoid any regrets.

    P2 Equation Sheet: AQA-AS1-AS2-PH2-EQUATIONS-SHEET.PDF:

    P3 Equation Sheet: AQA-PHYS-W-DS-3.PDF

    I mix up my units with every equation it's actually ridiculous.
    And you would think it's pretty straight forward...

    Use dimensional analysis!

    Just check your units on each side of the equation and they should balance up

    For example, you know p=mv, so therefore the units of momentum must be the same as the units of mass (kg) times the units of velocity (m/s), so the units of momentum are kgm/s.

    How many marks, on average, out of 60 are dedicated to equations?
    To me, equations are the easiest marks in all of science GCSE because you get the formulae sheet and as long as you remember the units, you just insert the numbers given.

    In my mock (P2) there was literally around 25 marks for JUST equations and I hope this happens again!
