    Hi
    On 21st October I gave my Physics exam, paper 2.I am doing AS level exams in November for physics and Biology. The variant I did was 2.
    It didn't go well.It was very long and we were out of time.8 questions! none of us finished. Usually it is 6 questions maximum with two short questions and rest long. But this time all the questions required a lot of time. In general, it was quite lengthy. Did anyone else here do Physics paper 2 in November session?
    Did anyone here give variant's 1 or 3? I'm curious as to how the other variants were.

    I posted this in the exam help but none replied. and I really want to know how others who gave Physics did.
    All of us who gave the exam from our center(our own school) are planning to write a complaint form to cie.Is it worth it?

    On 21st October I gave my Physics exam, Paper 22. It didn't go well.It was very long and we were out of time.8 questions! none of us finished. Did anyone give variant 1 or 3? im curious
    Any one else gave Physics? How did you find the paper?
    I am re posting this cuz no one answered the first one

    Physics = universe

    to suck = to be bad

    therefore: physics sucks = universe is bad

    Why is the universe bad?

    But seriously , what do you mean by "paper 22"? I mean I do physics gcse but i don't really understand what sort of physics you're doing having read this post. If you were more specific / posted in a more appropriate place (try 'exam help') you should get someone to answer your questions!

    Im sorry I wasn't clear. I meant variant 2. Paper 2 for Physics AS level.
    Oh actually I did but I didn't get any reply for about more than a week. And I really wanted to know if it was only us or everyone else.
    Even our teachers were very shocked. weird paper.
    No. Universe is cool. Physics paper was bad. Means Physics is still good but examiners..............

    No. Not really. I have never struggled with English so much that I would find a paper that hard!
    I did AS English language. Got an A in paper 1 that was all about commenting on style of writing but a high C in paper 2.
    I'm sure English wasn't why I found it hard.

    Blasphemy.


    On a serious note
    Don't worry I know what you're on about. CIE can be like that. No point sending a complaint letter. Maybe the grade boundaries will be low

    ^^ I love this response.

    I sat for AS Physics but the third variant and for me this was not that bad of a paper. Second variants are usually harder though right? I mean for Maths they are. The time constraint, true. Very true. I felt like I barely had enough time to complete it all and you don't have time to stop and think. I love that there were zero definitions because definitions suck. I struggled with the second question but apart from that it was pretty okay. I'm hoping for a low threshold though.

    Also I don't think it's worth it to write a letter. They'll fix it with the threshold and if the questions are really hard then they'll remove it and ignore the marks from it. Have you done any P4 papers? The threshold is really low for that and that's just how it is sometimes.

    Yeah I will say this. Loved nearly all of A2 so far but in AS didn't like waves and the photoelectric effect. Also my first AS physics test was awful in one of the questions, had to find the resistance of a potato.

    Physics IS HARD! In some situations you will not have much time. Imagine that you were a nucular physicist at Fukushimale.

    Ive got news for you and your class mates, your all dead (hypothetically obv).

    Sounds like a small one, my school which has AQA for physics doesn't do this.
