    I did higher tier and the only question I think I messed up on was the Half-Life fractions because I was rushing the paper. The rest was fairly easy, I can remember some of my answers but not the calculations.

    I did bad and I probably got higher than most of the people around me who took the exam. So, let's hope everyone did badly so the grade boundaries can be adjusted. They need a certain percentage of people to get a certain grade.

    It wasn't too hard , it was just badly worded :
    First question was the disadvantage and advantage of a petrol powered engine compared to a turbine
    Advantage : Petrol can be used all year round
    Disadvantage : Petrol is a pollutant or non-renewable

    Question two : was what was the electricity supplied to the engine : energy transferred to surroundings + Energy transferred to dynamo = 8000

    Question 3 onwards I don't remember but it was easier maybe 49 for an A*.

    Last year it was 48 so for an A* it should be highest 40 for an A*
