    Was the paper a lot different to past exam papers?
    I didn't take Physics but I'm presuming that this should give some indication as to what the other science papers will be like.

    I do all 3 sciences and the specimen papers were nothing like each other...

    Sticks with the general trend of A levels now tbh, more about applying your knowledge instead of being told what to do

    I thought this was paper was pretty difficult, messed up the 6 marker! What property of material A did everyone put? Many people said elastic

    mine was somthing x10 to the -9. cant remeber exactly tho, did you do find the wavelength and use the wave speed equation?
    I didn't get a 10^-9 but yeah i used that equation after measuring the length with a ruler

    Honestly after the specimen papers that one was great. Still hard but honestly I feel good. I think it started hard but ended easy?? Maybe because they left particles last hahah!! What did everyone get for that 5 marker for frequency????? I can't remember my answer but i'm sure I was wrong lol
    I got f = c/wavelength = 3x10^8 / 0.118m (11.8cm?)

    Would that be correct?

    I found it harder than doing the older spec papers at home but that might just be because i was under pressure in the exam. Looking back on it, i think the paper was easier than the specimen papers we got but harder than the old spec papers. I just think they have increased the overall difficulty of all exams this year...

    I said brittle
    I said brittle as well but people were saying it's elastic because it's a straight line and stress is proportional to strain :/

    The engine question was pretty tough anyone feel like they got a decent 3 mark answer for it?

    There were multiple properties, so you would be awarded marks for discussing any one of them.

    That's what i did but i rounded to 12cm lol.. But because it was 5 marks i think we had to do something else :/ unless marks were awarded for significant figures..

    But it didn't stretch after elastic limit so that would make it brittle also? So i'm sure you'd get marked for brittle. Not sure if elastic would get the mark because B was also elastic up to a point, and D was the most elastic because it was most likely rubber..

    I got exactly that. But others are saying it was 12cm, could be some lenience in mark scheme

    I got 11.8cm as well. I think the 5 marks are for measuring correctly, identifying that it's the wavelength. Changing to meters. Then c=fl for the final 2

    The wavelength wasn't 12. It was actually 6cm because use need the of one wave not the 3
