    what grades do u need
    For Physics, I just need an A but it would be nice to try and get the A*

    On a serious note, there isn't much you can change now, so focus on getting enough sleep. Maybe get up earlier than usual and do some work beforehand, I find that more helpful than working the night before.
    I'll try my best but doubt I'll be able to sleep much. I can do the calculations by I'm not sure what I need to know in terms of definitions and facts and stuff.

    6 markers can be brutal, but a lot of define/law questions can be answered using equations

    This has confused me,

    E=BAN/t

    If it is rotated 60 degrees, BANcos(theta) becomes 0 at 90degrees so why doesnt that make E 0?
    Yep, BANcosθ becomes zero - this is the equation for magnetic flux, not emf.
    Emf = BANωsinωt, so at 90 degrees, this will be at a max.

    Another way of thinking about it is that the magnetic flux will be at a maximum when the most number of field lines are passing through it i.e. perpendicular the the field. They have a phase difference of 90 degrees so when magnetic flux is at a maximum, emf equals zero.

    With the way my other exams have been going, I'm so worried
    Same here my first A2 exams in the other two subjects were vile comparative to what they were last year..they were also both AQA...wonder if they're going to drop the world's worst unit 4 physics paper on us

    EMF=BANwSin(wt) as the coil is rotating, so at Sin90 EMF is max

    What did people think of the UMS for ISAs this year? Same as last year? I got 47/50 and was wondering if that would be 54 UMS like last year, more, or less, so I can help work out what I need for an A
    I got 47 too, but I think it will be 52 UMS this time, with 54 being 48 raw marks.

    This years were apparently easier than last years, but I only did the one on water flow which was pretty easy. Not sure about the SHM one

    what are you averaging on papers??

    Anyone else feel as though they understand the content more or less but still a bit unsure about how the exam will go?

    All of the past papers a different to an extent imo, I just hope there isn't anything that's there to deliberately throw people. More calculations compared to June 15 would be nice too. Didn't like that paper whatsoever

    Damn really? I was hoping for higher I did SHM, and didn't do the water one as I thought 47 would be fine

    Well tbh that's just my opinion - ISA boundaries don't usually change as much so maybe we'll end up with 54. I'm just assuming 52 for myself to be on the safe side

    Unit 4 usually about 105 UMS so pretty decent As. Unit 5 usually Bs.

    Based on last years UMS and what I think my ISA will be worth though I can realistically only get a B in physics though, and even if I do pretty bad in them I should be well enough into a B boundary.

    I'm just worried because I averaged 95% on Chem4 and I reckon I got about 60% in the exam. Then core 3 I'm usually in the high 60s but I got about 45 in the real thing. Both AQA papers.

    idk whether it's exam situations making me pressured and then I under perform, the paper's being crap, or both.
