Hi guys, so I decided to open a thread for Physics unit 1 exam which is on 14 may. You can post any of your doubts or helpful resources here for others. I think by looking from the exam for unit 3, Unit 1 will be easy too but its just a guess.

If you need 2019 January papers, you can find them on the following link:

Resource for notes that I used:

They are pretty decent tbh. Good luck Everyone!

This is the mark scheme.
I cant understand why they used 1 there

You can use n= 1/sin C and rearrange it to c =sin^-1 (1/n), n is given in first part, so c = sin^-1 (1/1.31) =49.8°

I have not done that paper yet, but resolving vectors is usually easy. All you need is to apply the tip to tail rule, and keep practicing.

Go to physicsmathstutor.com And then go in edexcel physics section, then there are topical questions. If your weak point is vectors, you can practice it there

Just don't even think about the possibilty of minimum marks cuz this will make you lazy, Make your goals higher and you'll achieve higher. When I started doing past papers, I was getting about 50-60/80 and after so much practice now I get more than 70. Make your own list of problem questions from past papers, in which you struggle cuz they are your weak points.

Thank you so much.
I tried using sinC= 1/n. But my answer wasn’t matching to the markscheme. Then i realized my calculator was set to radians 😐😂

You say you predict it will be easy like unit 3 but I actually thought unit 3 was pretty tough? They're not obviously hard questions, but they're all tricky and new :/
