    I've got this paper on Thursday. Anyone remember what was on 1P apart from those horrible 5 markers on putting a ball in a tube and convection currents?

    Error in title- 12th of June instead of the 11th! You gave me a fright haha

    No I don't remember, sorry.

    Credit goes to "IGCSE Kid" for this:

    From my Physics teacher:

    Dear Separate Scientist,

    I hope your Physics exam, paper 1, on May 15th went well. Below is a reminder of the topics that came up in each question in paper 1:

    1 Electromagnetic spectrum, wave equation
    2 Energy transfers, efficiency
    3 Pressure
    4 Radioactive decay, half life, dating techniques
    5 Forces during falling, terminal velocity
    6 Electrical power, series and parallel circuits, electrical safety (earthing)
    7 Electric motor
    8 Practical skills – investigation of evaporation rate
    9 Convection currents, Brownian motion
    10 Orbits, calculation of orbit speed, kinetic and gravitational potential energy
    11 Nuclear reaction equation, nuclear fission, nuclear reactor parts
    12 Current-voltage experiment for a lamp bulb, relationship between voltage and resistance of lamp filament

    There was a high proportion of explain-type questions and very few calculations.

    Paper 2 is on June 12th. It is bound to contain some of the topics in bold type in the specification and some not in bold type. I cannot predict accurately what will come up in paper 2 but the following topics have not been fully covered so far:

    · Everything in bold on the specification
    · Motion graphs
    · Newton’s laws
    · Hooke’s law
    · Comets, galaxies and the Universe
    · Electrical circuit calculations and Ohm’s law
    · Thermistors and LDRs
    · Reflection, refraction, critical angle and total internal reflection
    · Sound and ultrasound waves
    · Thermal energy transfer and insulation
    · Energy resources
    · Density
    · Pressure in fluids
    · Temperature and absolute zero
    · Gas laws
    · Magnetic field patterns
    · Electrical generators and Fleming’s rules
    · Uses of radioisotopes
    · Rutherford’s nuclear model of the atom
    · More practical skills

    There may be a higher proportion of calculations.

    Good luck on June 12th. May the force be with you!

    Oh dear. I wish I had actually revised for this one. I completely made up the explanation on how transformers work.

    Oh well, the past is in the past...

    I thought there would be more calculations to balance out all of the long writing questions in paper one. :unimpressed:

    sorry but im just curious - are you talking about paper 2P or paper 2PR?? D

    I'm pretty sure I did 2P. What did you do?

    ah, i did the 2PR paper, but then there was also a transformers question (5marks...) HAHA thought you might've did the same paper as I did ! :P

    did you guys get anything on static electricity -_-

    We did as well! I'm sure I did 2P... But to be honest, I don't know the difference between them. :

    Our static electricity question was OK. Didn't really like the longer one asking you how to demonstrate two different charges in insulators because I was scared they'd want me to name some of the different kinds. I kept it vague, so hopefully it'll be fine.
