The Chemistry exam is over. I often encourage people to focus on the next exam once an exam has ended, so I have opened this thread to discuss about the next exam, Physics Paper 2.
Feel free to post some of your thoughts and predictions for the upcoming exam!

I have just finished the 2PR exam.
For the buzzer question, I thought that B hears a lower pitch, and has increased pitch in half spin and decreased pitch in half spin, while A has both an increase and a decrease in each half spin.
For the charge experiment question I said the student should rub a few rods and if they attract, the rods have different charges.
As a whole, I thought that the paper was a bit more difficult than paper 1PR.

Omg I swear 9-1 is harder than the previous years. I think I’m doomed - I don’t even mentioned pitch for the buzzer question. For the 2nd question of rods, I wrote abt small pieces of paper attracting to it.

And btw. For the transformer question I got 15.6 (1200/100 x 1.3) I don’t think it’s correct tho. Which value should I use for number of secondary coil cuz there r 100 to 600. N it’s confusing, why do they give 4 marks to that question. Normally it’s 2 or 3
