1 less or two more significant figures than the values in the question have...In most questions, 3 will be appropriate.

I found the paper to be surprisingly good. I am worried they might increase the boundaries.

I also thought that paper was difficult. Hopefully boundaries will go down as they went down last year, and last years paper was much easier than the one today. I also have a copy of the paper I can post later if anyone would like it?

Decent paper imo, though I'll probably still get a B because of my awful assignment. Can anybody explain how they scale the marks in the paper with the assignment?

With the mark I get... I think they will bring the grade boundaries down by at least 3%

Im signing off now so just to say good luck tomorrow,
Someone please upload quality images of paper if you can (after the exam concludes- ask the invigilator)

remember - relationship formulae- substitution- work out- answer correct number of sig. figs and SI units.

It would be nice if some of you would spend some time learning to use Latex scripting here (TSR https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/help/latex"]link[/url])!:cry:
Hey man, I remember you posted the paper solutions after the Higher Physics exam last year, good to see you back!

Any chance you could please post some solutions for todays AH exam if you have some time to spare 😆

(User above has posted the question paper)

Thanks in advance

Thought it was harder than 2017, 100% sure grade boundaries will be down or the same as 2017. Btw did anyone get 0.088m for the distance between the two positively charged spheres and 15600V for the potential at P?

Yep I got 0.088m but totally forgot about what I got for potential, I didn't really know how to do that question lol- I spent 15mins on the first bit cuz my calc was in radians...

Hey, I think the paper is scaled back to 100 and then the marks for the assignment are added on bringing it up to 130

Overall I thought it was a decent paper. It was certainly fair however like previous years, I expect the grade boundaries to go down.
