tbh i'm hoping lots comes up for radiation and the atomic model (but i doubt it will because there was lots about this in the mock papers)

What didn’t come in the sample paper (electrolysis didn’t come up much on sample paper for chem but it did on actual one)

yh that would be good, maybe a 5 marker on shc or latent heat that nobody else would get right

love physics lol

yhh electrolysis didn't come up much on mock paper either but to be fair the monoclonal antibodies for bio came up on specimen and mock and the real exam (plus it was 4/6 marker as well that kinda surprised me ngl)

physics is my least favourite out of all the sciences but i somehow managed to do the best in it.. i like physics paper 1, paper 2 is just a whole other story- i am acc DREADING it

there are 5 required practicals for paper 1 right? i have a feeling that one of them for electricity might come up bc the already did specific heat capacity which was one of the trickier ones in specimen set 2 papers and the reducing unwanted energy transfer one seems way too straightforward

yh there could be a sneaky one which is easy but it asks for it in a weird way from chem and bio this could happen.
i reacon it will be electricity one yes.

also specimin set 2? link please.

Paper 2 has a lot more content
it's not even about the quantity of content , it's about the actual content (tbh i think they should've spaced it out more evenly bc almost all of the harder topics are in paper 2 except like space)

I think that nuclear radiation will definitely be in the P1 exam as it hasn't been covered much in the mocks

yh fission and fusion came up but nothing on irridiation/contamination/background radiation
