Hi Guys,

Just finished the exam, (Edexcel; Physics on the go).

How did everyone find it?

I personally found it the hardest paper I've ever done of this unit...

Grade boundary expectations?

Also found it the hardest paper! I wrote a tonne of rubbish for hall for it :'( I reckon grade boundaries will be low 50s for an A?

Same. alll the past papers i did i was dropping single digits in marks. understanding all the questions and then this exam comes along with the most vague and ambigous questions. For some reason i felt like simple question i would usually understand i did not. Did anyone work out how to do the one with the rowing boat crossing the river at a speed of 1.5ms-1
when the river was going at 1.1ms-1.

For the first bit i just resolved the vector with sine and cosine and for the second one i drew it out and measured it with a protractor and a ruler.

I think it might have been about resultant forces. Do you know the answer to the one about the cyclist?
I think that paper was harder than any past paper I've looked at.

the resultant force one was easy you just have to draw it...
for the cyclist do you mean the one with turbulent and laminar flow

It was relevant speed to the river bank - they were just trying to trick you
