    What does everyone think will come up? Surely they have to include big topics which they didn't include in paper 1, things such as potential dividers, resistivity, some projectile motion, hookes law?? Maybe some more on waves/stationary waves ?? I hate doing the practical questions so I'm worried what will come up !!

    I think internal resistance/emf won’t come up because that came up last year or 2016 for the practical

    Let's not try and predict. People tend to revise stuff that they think will come up instead of the things they're weak at.
    Leave the MCQs till last. If you feel it's good to, leave at least 40 minutes to do them but don't do them first. You'll waste your time plus they're for guessing if you run out of time. You can randomly put down an answer to an MCQ and still have a 25% chance of getting it right but you can't just make up something for the written qs.

    Im so stressed but i feel like doing more revision at this point is just useless bc if im not going to understand a question, then thats just it ygm? I only feel this way about physics as well. None of my other subjects are this inconsistent with question difficulty

    I feel exactly the same way, I'm just gonna try and binge watch all 'A Level Physics Online' videos before the exam
