    i reckon they're still locked but if you ask your teachers, they might give them to you, provided they don't plan to use it for a mock

    Physics is hard :sadnod: but you’ve got this! Anything in particular you’re struggling with?

    The only reason I'm worried is because basically I wasn't planning on doing an AS in physics (as AS levels are no longer taken), however I am dropping it next yr so wanted to take one.

    I only just decided to do it so that leaves me with only 3 weeks to revise!

    I'm struggling quite a bit with waves- especially young double slit interference and diffraction.

    Everyone (including me!) hates waves. If you break up the topic into smaller chunks it becomes easier to tackle, but it's still tough. Luckily in exams a lot of the questions are just "calculate this" instead of "why does this happen", which they do still ask but from what I've found not as much.

    Good luck though, you've got this :rave:

    Idk, I've been getting A's in all the papers (specimen set 1, 2), 2016, 2017 new spec papers, and never gotten below an A, but I'm scared I will this time . (The 2017 AS paper was horrendous but managed to scrape a mid 50's/70 mark ).

    I don't think I really need to do much revision tbh. I feel like I'm relaxing way too much right now but thinking back to my grades, I think it's fine to relax.

    What is everyone getting for 2017 mock AS papers?
    Do you have the 2017 papers on you? If you do do you mind sending me a copy so I can practice? That'd be really great.

    1. No.

    2. They will release on AQA's site around 10-15th of May, you can wait until then.

    Me too. I only decided to do this exam a few weeks ago and now I’m struggling so much. Especially with waves and electricity
