Hi
Son's teacher suggested that the following part of the thermal spec (3.6.2.3 Molecular kinetic theory model), would never come up and it's not worth revising / remembering. Wondered whether you'd been given similar advice / what you think about that?

"Assumptions leading to pV = 1/3Nm cms2
including derivation of the equation and calculations."

Thanks.

The kinetic theory model is always a hefty q, like 6 marks or something? I would defo go over it, ESPECIALLY considering its ranked the highest in paper 2

After today's Paper 1 refractive index question, do you think there will be a topic worth a number of marks (say 5 to 8) on Paper 2 that also isn't on the advanced info?

I am thinking of doing all the past papers available first then do savemyexams questions specific to advance info.

I am planning to leave paper 3 revision until I am done with paper 2. Do you guys think it is a good idea?

i think definitely because paper 2 topics are already shorter i think and if there are like 6/7 long questions, surely atleast 1 or 2 will be on a topic not listed on the advance info. but those qs will probs be the least marks out of all the big qs.

i would start paper 3 revision at the same time - atleast one of the sections of paper 3 (probs the optional unit)

To be honest, the topics they’ve given for paper 2 are actually very long. Magnetic fields is huge, same with radioactivity. Only ones missing are electric fields, which are already similar to grav fields, and capacitors. From memory. Papers also repeat qs in the same topic but with a different focus. I doubt the two I listed would come up, considering the content they already have on the advanced info, but idk what aqas mindset is

trueee we can’t really predict it. but considering they did put a long q on waves in paper 1, its possible that they do something similar in paper 2

Are guys including capacitors, dielectrics, and electric fields in your revision?
Considering how they put waves, one of these could pop up.

of course, because they did it last time what makes you think they won't do it again. I would stay on the safe side and revise everything

yep, i noticed that in every past paper from 2017 they’ve always done questions on 5 different topics and since only 4 were listed in the advance info, that suggests one of capacitors or electric fields is likely to come up too
