    did this last year and HATED quantum, couldnt understand it but luckily there was only one question it thank god
    got an A in this and an E in mechanics, teachers said theyve never seen the grades that way around hahaha oops

    I assume you mean de Broglie wavelength/diffraction, wave-particle duality, photoelectric effect...etc?

    No I think he means energy of a photon section, that's quantum physics.

    I could not find a thread for this year's electrons, waves and photons paper for physics OCR A.
    Therefore I made this.

    You guys can share resources, knowledge and predictions here.

    I will start: http://www.st-ambrosecollege.org.uk/...sics-as-level/
    This is a very good resource!

    Nice, I was waiting for a G482 thread! Revision's not going very well for me, I struggle with the electricity modules - mainly potential dividers and emf... The grade boundaries are so low though, I'll hopefully still get an A... How's your revision going?

    This website is very useful: http://www.physicsandmathstutor.com/...on/ocr-unit-2/ There are questions by topic etc.

    Thanks!!! And I dunno I'm
    Not doing too much revision on that module because there is the whole of half term. To bs honest there is not much to revise of you understand it but yh electricity is my weak part especially E.M.F as well
    It's a difficult concept tbf!

    Not so much for this module. So far I've only done june 2014. But that was all the way back in November as a mock exam. And jan 2010 which is meant to be the hardest one.

    Yes! It's exactly the same for me. I've been doing past papers and most of my marks come from the last 3/4 questions. What's up with electricity being so difficult?!? Not looking forward to this exam (thankfully it's my last). How's your revision going?

    I'm retaking this module (I'm in A2) last year I got a B and its not enough as for my uni offer I need an A overall in physics. Hate electricity. Still think this is going to be my worst exam this summer, including A2's :no:

    Last year's exam was really hard. We did it all the way back in November as a mock at school and I managed to get 60/100 which was just an A aha. It was really difficult!

    Yeah have to say last year's paper was tough. Also as this is the final sitting of this paper its apparently going to be even harder!

    That's interesting! Then they should put on all the stuff in the exams that hasn't been used in the syllabus!
