    That sounds sensible! My college made a paper booklet of past papers which I may do, but don't feel they benefit me as much as the actually unit 4/5 theory papers :/

    I mean the PHYA4 and PHYA5 exams. The EMPA is more of a practical task than a theory paper.

    Questions regarding the old syllabus: Are they syllabuses the same or similar with minor differences? And where can I find the grade boundaries for those?
    The legacy specification is almost the same as the current and the NEXT specification is hardy changed at all my teacher says. This means the questions are the same as they were 10 years ago (EXCEPT abit harder now due to MR Gove). They keep the physics spec similar to not annoy teachers. therefore do as many as possible!!! Grade bounadries dunno put as they have changed the frmat I would worry about that, I would look at last years and it will be the same of higher for the 2015 exams!!!

    I know this is a bit off topic but do you get a formula sheet for the written part of the empa?

    I believe the time for energy transfer is the time between maximums using figure 10.

    I just wondered if anybody could explain Q4cii on JUNE 2010 EMPA to me, regarding the period of the pendulum. Thank you!!!

    How far back are you going in terms of past papers?

    Well it's not going to appear in the theory exam. The only time that will happen is your ISA/EMPA.

    You might be asked to comment on an experiment in the theory paper though.

    Count the number of maximums in the graph and look at how long this has taken.

    EG: 12 oscillations in 20 seconds. Then you know that the frequency is 12/20, so the time period is 20/12 = 1.75 seconds
