    Yeah I agree does anyone fancy comparing their answers privately with me or something? Desperate to speak to somebody about the paper!

    Grade boundary predictions??
    I think
    47 - A
    41 - B
    36- C
    30 - D
    24 - E

    I'm expecting them to be much lower than last years

    If that turns out to be true, Ill be happiest person on planet.

    It'll be

    53
    45
    37
    30
    24

    If not higher

    The actual number you got for acceleration was 2.7 recurring so it wont round down to 2.7 it would round up to 2.8 if anything

    Wasn't the answer 30/11 so 2.72727...

    Yeah I thought so too
    2.72

    So 2.7

    Damn you think 53 for an A? Last years grade boundary was 49 for an A and I'll say this year was harder. Either way hop you did well!

    You probably measure half the wavelength not the full wavelength

    Pretty sure it was 19/7⇛2.71....

    For those talking about the electricity.... the PD across A and B couldn't be zero since the potential difference between the resistors was different. To get the marks you had to talk about the resistances staying constant so for a different pd the change in voltage across the sources remains the same.

    I remember getting 2.714 for the acceleration, not 2.7 recurring

    I guessed that one and just put it'll always be zero think I'll get a mark? That was the only question I was unsure on

    Thats not true. The voltage across the parallels might be the same but the pd between the probe and R3 would be different.

    I reckon it'll be lower, as loads of people found it hard in my class. I think 51 for an A, max...
    I hope anyway

    Why does nobody understand that they calculate the grade boundaries based on the performance of the cohort such that the top 20% of candidates get an A the 10% below that get a B and so on. It depends on how well we all did and where abouts you fell in the cohort as a whole as to what your grade is... They don't just pluck these things out of thin air! So if we all found it difficult then they'll be lower because the mean score will be worse and if we all found it easy then they'll be higher

    I put B as the lift cable, because it can be under a lot of force without too much extension. Plus, then it can be seen easier when it must be replaced as it will have extended rather than snapped and dropped a lift full of people to their death
