I'm kind of... 'ducked' for this exam. I really don't want to fail though, because I think I've already done pretty badly in music and further maths. And also because it would be nice to have a GCSE in physics.
We didn't really cover these units for long either. I don't want to fail.. :cry2:

Its been nice knowing you guys.
How can I make sure I can get a B in an hour of revision?

I can't motivate myself to revise for this exam because it's my very last and i'm just sick of exams. I'm also really tired. I hardly understand any of P6 plus it is so boring. I really want to get an A* in physics though. I guess i'll just read through the posters I've made and pray for a nice exam tomorrow (preferably with nothing about lenses in the P5 section)

Yes it is also my last exam and I'm burnt out
I hate lenses P4 P5 P6 are the most scientifically challenging out of the 3 sciences.
Going for A I'm not A* candidate worthy I'm too lazy loool.

You need 32-35% for a C it's a easy subject to get a GCSE in.

I have the exam tomorrow, I think to do well in this exam you must understand it. It's just like maths, if you don't understand the formula then your not gonna understand the question. This test is not like the other tests where they ask you what's in the book, you have to apply that knowledge to the questions.
tbh I did pretty bad in the first physics test because I didn't get to finish... But I feel more confident about this one because P6 is basically electronics if you studied that which I have.
Good luck to everyone, I still have one more after this... Gaaaaaaaah! And it's the longest one too!!!! A 2hr statistics exam wtf!!!!
Have a nice holiday anyway, relax time is soon
btw there's a good motivational video by that Shia Lebouf guy, and it's funny to, you should watch it if possible. ☺

Okay, thanks. I'm probably just catastrophizing, I should stop worrying and use my logic in the exam, and revise a section thoroughly tonight.
It kinda sucks, i'm a perfectionist, so I'd be ideally aiming for all A's. I think that that's probably slightly too idealistic though, (My targets are all A's and 2 A*s)

Good luck for tomorrow.

Edit: Also. I wouldn't say its easy. At least not for me and the majority of the other people in our school. Dx

I don't think any schools have finished any of the science courses, we have had to learn all the last units by ourselves :s
Good luck!

You'll need your logic for logic gates.

Fresh out the exam hall I'm confident I got over 50% at least. The prism question threw me as it was the only thing I had not really covered which was a pity also the logic gates question was awful it totally bewildered me did anyone complete the table?
