cd puk im doing AS physics and im trying to revise for thermodynamics and electricity how did you did u just do alot of past papers or did you just read alot for the books
Excellent! Come midnight, there'll be some rep flying your way, just wish it was worth something. I'll be happy to contribute some of the notes I produced, good job!
sorry for asking again, but is there anyone in the UK doing this paper?
I did this course - this exam was fairly easy. You know you get the 'source material' - all u gotta do for the first section of the exam is make sure you read it carefully and understand everything in it (usually not too hard from the past papers I saw), and then it'll be pretty clear what questions might come up.
I.e. if they give you an eqn or a graph or a table, then you'll probably be asked something about that. Look for bits that link in with the syllabus and make sure you know the associated eqns.
Even if you dont understand some bits then its likely that they'll have just put those bits in for your information and they wont come up in the questions. Remember you shouldnt have to know any additional material outside the course syllabus and the booklet.
So the first section's quite easy - just try and predict what questions will come up and make sure you cover the areas.
The second section of the exam is harder and as far as I can remember they can ask you anything from the two years of AS and A2. Brush up on the optics, communications, materials, equations of motion etc from AS and make sure you know the A2 stuff and you'll be fine.
AAAaaaaaaaaah section C. I absolutely screwed this up in the exam - left about ten minutes for it cos I hated it. Then misinterpreted the question jusging by what everyone else put.
But, come results day, it turned out I'd aced both the exams despite making a completely ****-up of both section Cs.
So... my advice is: make sure you leave at least 15 mins for the section - preferably 20; prepare some 'stock' answers based on past papers and what they might ask, use your coursework; but dont worry if you muck it up or it seems like you are writing pure bull shizzle cos they seem to mark it really generously anyway.
Please, if anyone knows where I can access this markscheme I need it urgently!
Appreciate any responses!
Does anyone have the 05 and 06 physics a papers for forces and motion and wave properties thanks might have to buy them! argh
it is been long i have not logged on to this room... but this is kinda the last and the most hopeful opportunity that i can have to....
ask for the paper as the mock exam is just tomorrow and if i can have that paper...
thank you thank you thank you thank you
