Hi, I managed to somehow stumble onto the Senior Physics challenge last year. I personally only answered like 40 or 50 questions but they were level 5 & 6. If you put enough effort into these; they become reasonably simple. The residential itself is very intense but also very fun if you can cope. It's definitely an experience i'd recommend. On the number of questions note; there were people there who had answered like 600 questions; but they were no better than people who'd answered far fewer; so don't thing about quantity, more quality.

Hi, so I just got selected for the residential! Can I just ask where you stayed while you were there? In one of the colleges?

Hey I've also been selected
From looking at threads for previous years we stay at the colleges, but I don't know if that will be case this year too/how the process works.

P.S. I've made a dedicated thread for this year's challenge here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...4#post71413514

Feel free to post any questions or discuss over there
