Oh my God 2019s paper was roouuuugh! That whole thing with the oxygenated blood had me stumped. And so much Combining of formulas for kinetic energy and stuff. That paper made me mighty sad. Did 2017 and felt like everything was cool then did 2019 and was like I'm gonna die. About to do 2020s now. Hopefully 2019s paper was just an anomaly.

Do we need proof of completed Core Practicals this year, for example written up in a lab book? My friend does Edexcel Biology and says they don’t need to do any this year, but so far the Edexcel website for physics says we need proof of at least 12 practicals in order to pass?

Yeah they tricked me but paper 3 is the hardest paper usually but they gave us some info so synoptic questions shouldn’t be too bad they’ve told us one main practical that and the uncertainties and know how u increase accuracy with apparatus we shouldn’t be tooo bad half shouldn’t be too rough

yeah thats true but whenever they asked to criticise or comment on something I almost never get it right when I think I'm right. i can never interpret the questions correctly :bawling:

Last year was 51% for an A and we know they have to be a little higher this year, I'm hoping it'll be about 55% for an A. 2019 was 58% and I can't see them making it that high again, as they've lowered them every year so far
