    by highest you mean hardest?

    If so mee too! Its equally weighted against Biology and Chemistry though so as long as you did well on them you can drop a few marks on this one.

    The main 'lists' of things you need to know are:

    All the Relevant Formula
    Electromagnetic Spectrum
    Order of Planets
    Electromagnetism

    All the other stuff you can learn more generally, download the sylabus of your exam boards website and you can tick of what you know (theyre pretty detailed).

    thank you!!! yup, i meant hardest. i think i can manage all that, i just get electromagnetism and electricity questions hard to grasp...maybe it is cos i should go back and revise the basic principles

    I don't get it, why do people find it so hard?
    you just have to learn the formulas and you're sorted and then electromagnetism, the EM spectrum, radioactivity and the Earth and Beyond is so simple?

    a radical suggestion might be err, cus we're not all physics geeks?

    i understand what you mean about just applying the formula's, but not all the questios involve calculations. i duno..i guess i just gota see how it goes!

    Good one. :rolleyes: I don't really like physics, infact its the one I dislike most of all the science subjects, but I think it's easiest because you can see the things happening all around you.

    vinz, I can understand if you find it difficult though, as based on your last post, it seems your level of intelligence is shockingly low.

    The exam on Tuesday isn't much to worry about. It's the extension exam on Friday which is the real bummer (if you have it).

    do you feel that the equations are the essential foundation for physics or a basic grasp of all the topics. which is most important?

    thanks
