# GCSE AQA Physics Paper 2 Predictions - 15th June 2018 9-1 watch

1. These are the topics that are in paper 2 - Which ones do you think will appear the most / What questions are likely to come up?

5. Forces
6. Waves
7. Magnetism and electromagnetism
8. Space physics (physics only)

Any help on what i should revise for this exam would help loads x
2. Obviously make sure you go over everything cos I made the mistake of missing out a topic for chemistry paper 1 (topic 4) and half the paper was questions from that topic so yeah and of course make sure you know your equations and required practicals because they ALWAYS come up in physics exams ! other than that idk
3. I just made a list of topics i believe will come up in the Physics Paper 2 Exam -

• Flemings Left Hand Rule
• Electromagnetism
• Distance-Time Graphs, Velocity-Time Graphs
• Newtons Laws
• Transverse / Longitudinal / Electromagnetic Waves
• Diagrams (Converging/Diverging Lenses)(Ray Diagrams)
• Primary and Secondary Waves
• Space (Redshift, Big Bang Evidence, Life Cycle of a star)

Hope this helps you lot x
4. Basically the hardest science paper. Expect loads on forces and waves due to their amount of content and the final question I guarantee will be on electromagnetism regarding either the Generator effect or the Motor effect because pretty much everyone in set 1 science at my school didn’t have a clue about it. Make sure you revise Generator and Motor effect because imo it’s hard.
5. Seismic waves haven't come up at all as of yet as they're new and triple only, so I can pretty much guarantee they'll be on this paper
6. Here are my predictions:

- Resultant forces inc vector diagrams/resolving forces
- Moments, levers and gears - 90% likely
- Spring extension practical
- Pressure in a fluid + upthrust
- Terminal velocity + velocity-time graphs
- Newton's Laws
- Reaction times
- Waves practicals
- Sound waves
- Seismic waves + ultrasound - v. likely
- Lenses - 99%
- BB radiation + visible light
- Microphones
- EM devices
- Transformers
- Fleming's LH rule
- Possible lifecycle of a star 6 marker
- Orbits/red-shift

what is lenses and life cycle of a star?
are you doing 9-1 system ?
9. Yes but this is for triple physics
10. Which practical is most likely to come up Triple science 9-1?

well.....
there's the
1. Hooke's law
2. effects of mass and force on motion
3. ripple tank and waves in string
4. investigating light refraction
5. Leslie cube

Thanks!
Thanks!
15. A question about changes in momentum where you have to explain why a larger time taken would reduce injuries using multiple equations.For the last question
16. YOU NEED TO BRING IN A PROTRACTOR

AQA sent a message to my Exams Officer saying we need a protractor, just warning you in advance
