    My answer was along the lines of:
    - attach one end of each connecting cable to power supply
    - attach other end of each cable to the wire to complete the circuit
    - wrap wire around nail and use clamp to hold up nail
    - turn on power
    - see how many nails electromagnet can hold
    - test for different voltages (every 2V) and compare number of paper clips held
    - repeat at least 2x to identify anomalies

    That had to be one of the easiest 6 markers I have seen in sometime. That alongside P2s Alpha Beta Gamma

    Really? Everyone in my school found it hard maybe because we haven't done the practical?! I liked the P2 six marker but not the P3!

    I did the wrapping the wire bit and connecting the wire to the power supply. But I also added some random bits in like rubbing the steel paperclips on the electrolysed nail etc. Hopefully I get at least 3/4marks! How did you find the exam overall?
