The second 6-marker (red shift) should have been a 4 marker IMO. There isn't 6 marks worth of elaborated information that links red shift to the expansion of space. Black spectra shift towards the red end of the spectrum (so the wavelengths become longer) of the observed galaxies... this is proportional with the distance between the centre of the observable universe (Earth) and the distant galaxy. There isn't much else you can write for it.

I just added how this supports both the Steady State and Big Bang theory, and described the differences between the two - (Steady State says new matter is being created whilst the fabric of space expands and the Big Bang theory states that matter has expanded from a super-dense singularity.)

That's what I thought... I didn't have all that much for the other 6 marker too. In desperation I decided to draw some little diagrams too. Much of my class didn't really like the paper :cool:

It was a nasty paper, I agree. The shock absorber and spring questions... minor topics in the specification made into a lot of questions. I feel as though I've done well in it, but it was a nasty paper. I reckon the grade boundaries will be lowered too this year.

I'm trying to compare how I thought about it to how I felt after my mock, really would like an a* so I hope the boundaries are quite low. There was definately an excessive amount of the shock absorber :mad:

That is exactly how i feel about the paper in general. Hopefully as you said the grade boundaries are very low.

It was B because: A and D were eliminated as they went back in time and C was eliminated (not sure of the reasoning but I know it's not) because the voltage completely stopped at one point.

P1 exam totally destroyed me lol, I prefer P3

Everyone's progress is like P1 = full marks, then it starts levelling off at P3, I'm the complete opposite, can't do P1 for my life. :mad:
