LOL in the Higher Geography I picked the hardest out of the optional questions more for the heck of it than for any proper reasoning .

Which one do you think is the hardest out of the optional questions? This is the application paper right?

Good idea shiny, just gave u rep.
Just to let u all know im @ Scot, went to Scottish school, did Scottish highers and [email protected] Scottish Uni! and want to add myself to the few in favour of this thread proposal
Thanks.

Well in the exam the River Basin Management question was a little harder than usual (although not evil imo), and the Rural Land Resources seemed really quite easy as it was all stuff I knew quite well and had revised. However they had that long question on describing the formation of the landscape so I decided to go with the question I'd planned for. My teacher was a bit miffed with me for it, but thinks I probably did alright anyway.
In general, of the three applications I do, I find Urban Change and Management the hardest.

I thought Bio was fair too.

A lot of people were complaining about the data interps.

What uni are you going to and which subject are you studying?
I thought the unit 1 interp was a bit tricky but fine, and the unit 2 interp was really straightforward.

I have an offer for Biochemistry at Oxford (AAA). Yourself?

I have an offer at Edinburgh, thanfully it's not AAA though.

I can't believe Chemistry is on Wednesday morning!

How is your revision going? I'm not sure if I have done enough. I keep going over notes and it's getting boring now. Any suggestions to lighten revision up would be welcomed.
To me, Wednesday morning can't come soon enough. It's only 5 days but feels an age away... is it your last exam too?

I'm afraid I don't know a way to make chemistry revision and less dull and painful. Sorry

Christ. (Not entirely blasphemous as those of us who just sat Adv Higher Physics are well aware - there is no God).

That paper was a beast. Would love to hear from anyone who'd agree, preferably if they also managed to get 1.33Hz for some frequency of wave motion question (NOT the right answer, but I don't want to be the only one), and an extra warm welcome extended to those who also thought the 'A to B distance' question on satellites was clearly some kind of joke, and therefore didn't waste time trying to find a non-existent answer.

How is it possible that Physics went as badly as English?!

I didn't think it was too bad actually.

The frequency of wave motion question I couldn't remember the form of the equation (forgot the 2pi) but it was only a couple of marks anyway.

The satellite one I did get an answer but I don't know if it's right - I used theta=w.t to find the angle turned in 86 minutes, then used s=r.theta (from the definition of the radian, theta=s/r) to find the distance on the ground.

i got 1.3Hz for the frequency of the simple harmonic motion question, but 1.9Hz for the frequency in the wave motion question.

and i did the same as calum for the satellite question, and got 2.4x10^6 m

Nope but a few of my chums did. Generally they said it was quite a hard paper.

Interesting. :cool: I didn't get a chance to gauge reaction after my exam really as I left early (wasn't feeling well and just had to get out of that hall). Only person I've spoken too said it was disasterous but I didn't find it too bad personally. Just those nasty little "Which of the following statements is/are true?" questions! Argh! Other than that I forgot a little bit about lasers but managed to waffle I hope . There were some questions that looked like they were put in to catch people up.

I am equally confused, because I thought it was an easy paper. :: is now worried :: Anyone else find it pretty straightforward?

i thought it was ok but it could have been easier (linear motion, distance of closest approach, motion in electric and magnetic fields, wave-particle duality were all missing)

Yes, there was a lot on angular motion, but quite a lot of the questions were ones we'd seen before in past papers. It could have been easier, yes: De Broglie would have been nice

yeah or a 'describe the bohr model of the hydrogen atom'. when i turned the page and saw the five mark relativity question i thought oh yes. but then it got harder. question 12 (polarised light) was good too actually.

I thought it was straightforward, so was maths, so hopefully thats 2 A's so far. Now I'm just praying for a nice chemistry paper aswell, I need straight A's!

Agreed, the relativity question was lovely. I think I was just really unprepared for all the problem solving - stupid, I know, it was a Physics exam after all - but I thought there would be more KU, proofs and definitions etc. I seemed to revise (or memorise) an awful lot of stuff that didn't come up, which is a bit annoying. But I may just be reacting to the fact that me mucking up questions like the A-B distance one has probably sunk my Cam Law offer. Not too upset though, Edinburgh would be wicked
