    I don't know whether is there a thread for 2015 Jan Edexcel IAL Physics exam or not but I just open a new one.

    So, for people who took the exam today, how was it? :confused:

    It wasnt that hard. But it was the trickiest paper I have ever done.
    The questions required careful reading through the stem of the questions.
    Im not sure about all the questions, but Im sure I aced the magnets A and B one
