I didn't think it was hard exactly. But the grade boundaries will be low. I'm predicting 46/7 A*, 39 A, 32 B, 26 C, 20 D

I think the A* will be much lower than 46/47 because November 2012 was 44 for an A* and it was much easier than today's paper for sure, so it should be about 40/41?

I do love all these threads watching people crying when they can't walk through an exam without doing any work any more.

If it's only 44 out of 60 for an A*, I think I have a chance at a low A*. I made so many silly mistakes (not converting Watts to Kilowatts, not realising that question was about blueshift) that cost me a lot of marks, but I think everything else went fine.

Anyway, I still have 50% (P2, P3) to go to make up a poorer performance in this exam.

True, but it was not easier than the november 2012 paper which was only 44 for an a*, so the minimum it could be is 43/44 if they want to be harsh, but it's not going to be around 48. If it's not then that means 100% ums.

well it is based off how we do as a country, since 2012 people have become more academic and competitive with their grades so more people may have done better, but if not maybe it will be 41

The one where it said a star is 599nm away from us and the sun is 600nm i said the star is closer to us it shows less red shift. Its less distant i think i got 2/3 for this question hopefully

Did you have to calculate the 599 because I cannot believe they will have written a question saying that
