hey there, i sat my paper yesterday, i did higher tier and struggled a lot it was really hard..
though idk if it was designed by my school but the subjects that were on it were:
- non renewable and renewable sources , they asked a question about different sources and what kind of energy they are ( eg thermal, chemical )
- Half life ( only a small easy question )
specific heat capacity ( i failed this question, they asked to find the mass )
- the symbol for a fuse
- the domestic energy ( 230v and 50hz was the answer )
i cant remember anymore,
ask your teacher for a checklist, and make sure you know all the equations, they give u some equations just not all. GOODLUCK

Thank you. It went ok but I waffled a lot on most of the questions and also think I got the specific heat capacity one wrong

triple had a lot more on it i believe, though the specific heat capacity Q was definitely on triple ( my twin does triple )

hi, have you done biology paper one yet?
yeah i have done both biology papers, though again idk if it’s just for my school ,on paper 1
there was ( higher paper )
: the structure of the leaf, and what each part does , eg : the phloem, xylem , spongey mesophill
there was a question about
- microscope question ( image size = actual size x magnification )
- food tests
- improving the pond weed practical
- drug trial testing
- enzymes
- osmosis
- what’s the difference between a bacteria and plant cell
( that’s all i can remember )
paper 2:
- ruler drop test ( about reaction time )
- labelling the thyroid, adrenal and ovaries in a diagram
- what enzyme digests starch ( amylase )
- food chains
abiotic and buotic factors ( biotic = living , abiotic is non living )
- IVF ( the stages and why it increases the chance of fertility / pregnancy )
- a lot about the menstraul cycle, mainly about LH
- the nervous system and how it works ( S R S R M E R , = stimulus, receptor, sensory neurone , relay neurone , motor neurone, effector , response ) ITS A GOOD RHYME LEARN IT
- definition of homeostasis ( meaning= maintaining the optimum internal environment )
- you need to know what hormone acts on what ( they were - pancreas - insulin - liver, adrenal gland - adrenaline- heart, pituitary gland - oestrogen - uterus )
ummm and yea that’s all i can think of, paper 2 was easier , GOODLUCK I HOPE I HELPED!

Thank you so much xx I don’t know if it’s too much to ask but have you also done the chemistry papers? ☺️

ahah yeah i’ve finished them, AGAIN idk if my school designed them themselves but here’s what i got/ can remember
chemistry paper 1:
energy change practical ( with the polystyrene cup )
method of crystallisation
question about graphene and diamond, the properties of them
displacement reactions
uhh i can’t remember anything else cus i did the paper last week, but paper 2 contains..
- how to calculate carbon footprint
- evolution of the atmosphere
- green house gases
- the effects of sulfur dioxide , solid particles and umm.. carbon monoxide
- alkenes and alkanes
-the formula for them and how to test it, ( using bromine water )
- how to calc mass change in gas by using a graph
- disappearing cross practical
- factors effecting rate of reaction
- fraction distillation
ok i can’t remember anymore but there was definitely more, just study those main topics or smth

Do anyone of you remember the specific heat capacity question in detail, so I can try it out myself.

no problem x
were there any hard question on forces and motion? or space?
I did my chemistry exam today and it was pretty hard and i'm hoping that physics goes better.
