Do we need to know about how to plan out any of the experiments for paper 1 /measurements and their errors. Also will the grade boundaries be higher or lower than 2019?

The grade boundaries will be lower than 2019 - about halfway between 2019 and 2021.

No you don’t that is on paper 3 don’t worry. There’s a chance they could talk about an experiment in general, but all the details would be included in the question and they won’t ask about errors/uncertainties.

There is a thread discussing the AS physics paper. The advanced information was apparently not very reliable.

Apparently a multi-mark question was based on a non advance-information topic. Honestly I don't think they should be allowed to do this; by including said topic the advance information was likely a hinderance for those who relied on this document that was SUPPOSED to detail the multi mark question topics.

Those who sat the as physics paper can you confirm that the advanced information was covered in the non-multiple choice question (The questions that weren't in the multiple choice). AND where the ranking of the advanced info or what's most likely to come up true

I think like what their gonna do is see what percentage of students got a certain grade and compare that percentage to the 2019 grade equivalent. Then they might work out an average and award that percentage to students in 2022.
