    The next two weeks for me is still finishing the syllabus!

    We finished FP4 this week, but it didn't really feel like doing much because everything in FP4 is matrices so it's just more of the same! Chemistry is a fair few weeks off finishing but everything else is done and ready to be revised

    I will hopefully have them after my unit 5 mock, but no one has yet volunteered to upload them

    I think most colleges want to keep them under wraps unfortunately.

    I see. Annoying that AQA haven't put up last years papers yet when other exam boards have :rolleyes:

    Have other exam boards? I can't see my Edexcel subject (History), but I can with WJEC (Computing).

    Ah! I do option D; the Challenge of Fascism (Germany Kaiser to Fuhrer) and the coursework.

    How are you finding physics? What option do you do?

    Ah fair enough, I always found Germany units interesting (at GCSE anyway).

    I'm doing the astrophysics unit, which has probably been my favourite part this year to be honest. Didn't like some of the fields stuff in unit four really, the mechanics stuff I did in maths so didn't find too bad but the magnetism stuff was just :confused:. Wishing we still did the particle physics from unit one!

    Yeah I did Germany at GCSE which was cool. There's a lot of overlap between GCSE and A2 so learning the content this year has been a lot easier.

    I feel the same really! There's a lot of content in astro which is rather annoying, but it's one of the more interesting units I think.

    Hi guys!

    For those who are doing the Turning Points Option could someone please explain why in special relativity EK = (m – mo) c2 ?

    Does anyone have any of their own revision notes for this unit they would be happy to contribute to the thread?

    I'm in the process of finalising mine before I upload them onto here and the PHYA4 thread! Just trying to gather as many resources as I can for the benefit of everyone here.

    That's always a plus! Yeah there is a lot of content but nothing, in my opinion anyway, that seems too bad or overly complicated.

    Oh right! Yeah, I see what you mean. If only that was the same for the fields topics in unit 4.
