guys what do you think will come up? predictions so far from people i know:
-forces, turning effects of forces, and movement
-deffo electricity
-waves - maybe light waves or the em spectrum
-energy transfer
-radioactivity, maybe the uses of alpha, beta and gamma rays
-something about magnetism i wasnt really paying attention
-and then a graph to draw and like answer questions about

what do you think will come up? and do you think it'll be harder/easier than chem/bio?

I'm literally dreading it. Physics is my worst science, and so if it follows the trend of "let's not ask any actually science, just make them do guesswork" I will fail. I hate "suggest why" questions...

I'm hoping for some easy electromagnetism, loads and loads of waves, refraction, moments, basic forces, hopefully not space... You?

I've also got my worst of the four ancient Greek papers that morning (kill me)

SAME. PHYSICS IS MY WORST and I was counting on bio to bump me up, but that went to hell. I hate electromagnetism its so hard and annoying literally nothing makes sense in physics.
Omgggggggggg good luck! I have business that morning too so I'll be dead...

Electromagnetism = :eek3:

Literally. I have a 57 page word document of notes on the whole of physics and I still don't know a thing...

Best of luck with business

In our unit test for that, literally everyone got a C, well, our physics teacher doesn't do c*ap either.

Eesh.

Orbital force (may be wrong but this is what I think):

As the sun has a larger mass than comets, it has greater gravitational pull, which means it attracts the comets so that they orbit the sun?

There's something in my notes about 'attractive force' but that sounds made up...Not sure

You know those terrible questions they set that are aimed at like E grades but are actually deceptively difficult? I hate them. Once I did a question something like:

"Here is an old weight. It says it's 100g. Somebody weighs it. Oops, it's actually 98g. Is there something wrong with the scale?"

That's meant to be easy but I still got it wrong. I wish it was just equations and definitions all the way through... *sigh*

I go to the International school in Jakarta, so it costs like 30k, and all my chem+physics teachers are doing, is letting us copy of definitions off powerpoint slides, last year the teachers were way better, got an A* in the mock without studying and this year an A, seems like physics is not gonna be the expected self-runner

yeah i get you. i go to a private school & its all $$$$$$$ everytime i wanna breathe we pay money and yet i had to teach myself everything for science cuz we didnt do anything in class!

Speaking of grass, I thought that question in chemistry was awfully worded. Filtration right? Why not ask it in a normal way?

Uhhh... and I'm about to cry cos English Lit is next week and I haven't looked at my notes in a month...

the funny thing is, that all our good teachers left, cuz they apparently lowered the salaries, so now we get these teachers who were probably unemployed for like 5 years and now came to this school to at least have a job, (although Jakarta is pretty bad to live&work).

me too, good o'l cie, especially in maths, where they say that an a/a* in edexcel is a high c in CIE

The only easy CIE exam imo is Indonesian, they tested a new past paper concept, so it was so easy that you have to be almost ******ed to not get at least a B.

Gosh that sounds bad for maths (I did Edexcel! But I am taking OCR additional maths as well which is quite a bit harder).

I'm doing Spies, All My Sons and Poems Deep and Dangerous... You?

My attentiveness during Lit sessions was 0% but as far as i know, we just did all my sons, our english teacher is a bit special, so we did everything about poems on pos-its on posters in a group, so we all have literally no resources for that. I might revise lit on the day of the exam, cuz its at 6pm (rip timezone)
