    Seems to be no thread for this yet...
    Not a popular course I know (for good reason), but in case anyone else out there's taking it, here's the G495 thread. G494 thread here.

    So here it is, OCR B Advancing Physics: G495 Field and Particle Pictures. This is on chapters 15 - 18 in the textbook.

    Exam is on the morning of June 19th 2014.

    Good luck guys!

    What is UMS?

    The papers are marked, raw mark grade boundaries are calculated, then these marks are scaled up to give UMS marks. The amount of UMS awarded for each grade is:

    Max - 150
    a - 120
    b - 105
    c - 90
    d - 75
    e - 60

    Any chance you could upload the questions even without the mark scheme? I really need to start working on it!

    I forgot to take them home from school which is awkward because they're my homework. I can on Monday though. I would say they're helpful in showing what subjects we're likely to be asked about, but they're definitely harder than exam questions and the style is different.

    Well that's one argument! But it'd be nice to have some other resources for it. Does your school/ college not give you anything for it?

    Yeah they were saying this at my school. Grade boundaries will shift though don't worry! They're probably compensating for that woolly physics exam we had last year.

    Good luck for G492!

    Just hosted them on Google Drive, links are in the same place as they were before.

    Either way it wasn't doing that before, so just in case they lock it further, the changed links stay
