most likely, even if its only a few marks worth-would definitely recommend revising it anyway

Guyss, do you have any revision techniques? My school currently haven't finished P2 and the parts we learnt of P2 was with a replacement teacher so I have to teach myself at home, any tips?

For me, a great way is to use a combination of the syllabus, Free Science Lessons (Free Science Lessons) and past/specimen papers.

Good luck!

I hope its IV, last year it was resistance so that is out and the specs set 1 and 2 higher were SHC and density so it most likely not be thos

And paper 2 to piss everyone off i feel like its gunna be ripple tank cause to me its hard but idk about others..

on track for 9 ( doubt ill get that probs an 8), ill be honest haven't done much p2 revision atm cos i need to bump up my p1 for now,
guessing ur on track for a high grade ?
what you get in ur recent ish mocks cos my school i feel like are being too generous with some grades (2018 gcse)
i got 68 in both p1 and p2 so 136 overall, which is 1 mark above a 9 last yr but school bumps it down which is fair so i got a 7 upper in paper 1 and 8 upper in paper 2

yeah my school did that with economics as well, a 9 was like 96%
in my physics I got 87 and 88 so fortunately I got a 9, hoping to get that in the other sciences too
also I just noticed in my first reply I didn't mean to say what grade are you 'even' aiming for, just realised how patronising that sounds, sorry
