    Hey! Just did the paper 2 structured questions exam yesterday.. I definitely expected harder questions, but it turned out all right.. Although I did find 1 question mind-boggling.. Oh! The formula sheet actually saved me from losing 3 marks, phew

    I did 9702/22, so Paper 22. Yeah, question no.2 was on projectile motion, that one was so hard.. Glad that's done, but still got Paper 1 and Paper 3.. The practical isn't that hard in my opinion, but the multiple choice is where I suck at physics

    I messed up on question 2 but the rest was fine. What do you think the grade boundary for A will be this year?

    Yeah question 2 was horrible. Not sure about the grade boundary, the 2014 one isn't even released yet, right?

    I suppose the grade boundaries will (hopefully) be lower this year! Everyone at my school found question 2 to be tricky... The practical was really easy, and yeah the MCQ's are a pain :'( Cant wait to get it over with! lol

    Are the practicals generally really easy every year?
    Just did the practical earlier today. Tbh, it wasn't that hard, I always did thought the practicals were the easiest one of the three papers...

    How was it?
    I found it hard, as always paper 1 is my downfall.. A couple of the questions were repeated from past papers.. Since I'm not continuing physics to A-Level, my aim is just to get a C or possibly a B.. Paper 2 and Paper 3 went quite well for me, so Paper 1 i was aiming for at least 20/40.. SO GLAD EXAMS ARE OVER!!

    How much do you think we have to get in paper 1 for an A? assuming that paper 2,3 went pretty well.

    No idea at all.. For 2013, getting an A was around 26/40 while a B was 24/40... So hopefully it won't be too high

    Got a C (68). Was expecting a B, but this is fine since I won't be taking Physics for my A-Levels. My other results were satisfactory though. Congrats innocent98 and RickyCT!

    May I just ask guys, are you international students? I want to take CIE A level Physics next year but was told by a centre that they are only available to international students who came from abroad. But on the site:http://www.cie.org.uk/cambridge-for/...te-candidates/
    It says private Candidates could take the exams even if they are not based in Cambridge etc but candidates would have to find a 'Cambridge' centre to sit the exams. I'm super confused. I would appreciate it if someone could explain how this works.
