Any thoughts for tomorrow? Anyone’s teacher said anything useful about what might be on?

I feel like it will be ok, and that there will be a lot of electricity related maths

I'm predicting an application question about radioactivity - eg you're given the half-lives, types of radiation emitted and have to evaluate what would be most suitable
Static electricity, fission and fusion are likely.
I also think the electricity practicals will come up and you will have to draw an appropriate circuit.
Potential question on irradiation/contamination and maths involving background radiation?
Potential 5/6 marker involving more than one equation with unit conversions and rearranging.

After that chem paper, everyone should prepare themselves for death.

Background radiation is triple only and hasn’t come up yet, but there isn’t much content for it to know so I suspect they could give you some information about it and ask you to do a standard form calculation or percentage for example

I believe it simply involves subtracting the background radiation from the overall results on the Geiger-Muller counter, as background radiation is everywhere in the universe and thus is not a part of the radiation emitted by the specific object in the question

I don't think that required practical will come up because it came up in the mocks...focus on density and electricity ones I say
but the equation for it might come up

I'm expecting nuclear fission & fusion to come up, as well as either transformers in the national grid or electric field in terms of triple content.

Having sat quite a few AQA papers recently, they're out for blood this year.
