    Hi,
    I am doing the depth paper in June as well, and breadth did't go as well as I would have liked I did all the past papers prior to the breadth paper, as supplied by cowen physics. But, I still didn't know what I was doing. I was wondering whether you guys could give me advice on ow to approach the depth paper in a much more prepared and thoughtful manner? How are you able to do well in the paper?

    Thanks ))

    Has anyone got a good method to revise for this exam? I'm most likely dropping physics, but still want to achieve a decent grade for AS.

    just because topics came up on the breadth doesn't mean they wont come up in the depth.

    I feel like they're going to put a lot of emphasis into quantum physics and big experiments ( double slit; measuring Young's Modulus).

    Yeah my predictions ( looking at breadth too )

    . Youngs double slit
    . Free fall of G (idk i just feel it)
    . Moments question
    . Projectile maybe
    . Photoelectric effect

    You can assume that they won't repeat anything but if topics are repeated then you're going to be in an unfortunate and avoidable position. Personally, I don't think they're going to be putting big marks on questions that have been covered a decent amount, but until we sit the exam, we can't tell.

    We may sort of get a hint from the OCR biology paper and could see if there's a chance of repetition being on the depth paper from the breadth papers.
