There's no doubt that I'll even understand that Physics paper. How many equations do you think they'll give? I mean like, that's my only source of hope right there...I mean- what % of the paper is made out of equations? If I rely on those, how many marks out of 100 do you think I can get and what grade if I rely on common sense as well?

AQA by the way...aka the worst exam board known to mankind.

For AQA is says 30% of physics marks will AT LEAST be calculations. However paper 1 was like half of the marks so it could balance out and be very little

I'm...I'm gonna die. Why couldn't paper 1 (the one I found okay in) be with less equations? The next paper is actually a hellhound! I can't do it.

Yeah; some of waves and magnetism is quite difficult for paper 2. It’s really not too bad though, the questions they ask are normally quite basic if they ask stuff on the difficult topics.

For Physics paper 2, do we need to know all the equations from the topics in paper 1 + the equations from the topics in paper 2 to use for the paper 2 exam? Or is it just the paper 2 topic equations that will come up

Judging by chemistry paper 2 we need to know paper 1 stuff as well.

do we know for sure that we need to know all the equations for paper 1? Im worried as I don't know them as well.
