    I'm having my AQA AS Physics Unit 2 very shortly, but still I find the wordy 6-mark question challenging to get my head around. I would be grateful if anyone can give me a rough idea of what the questions could be about.

    Conservation of energy,
    Experiments finding the spring constant/Young's modulus
    Something to do about waves.

    Look at past papers, they may repeat a question.

    Depends what the question is. If the question is about Suvat and discussing some change in it then always state the equations and rearrange them as they tend to give a quick and easy mark.
    If its more about a concept like Newtons Laws i advise you mention all 3 Laws and manipulate the text to fit the context and always mention how Newtons Second law F=ma is in direct relationship to p=mv because F=(mv-mu)/t They are equal and thus show how force is the change in momentum per time its a key point i doubt you got taught it but even if its not part of the mark scheme it will give the examiner a good view on what you are capable of. This is very helpful because 1 examiner will mark your whole paper and not just single question. If you give me any question i can answer it how i think you would get full marks.
