Did anyone do a lot of rearranging in the calculation questions? For example to find the frequency I had to do the wavelength divides by the speed I think and I got 150 as the answer the calculations were in standard form?

What could you have written for the similarities and differences in the properties in ultraviolet wave and gamma waves?


For similarity I said that they're both ionising
For differences I said that gamma rays have a shorter wavelength and higher frequency than ultraviolet waves

2/2 I think! :smile:


What about me? I put they are both highly ionising for similarity and then I put what both are used for

for the 6 marker rq, it was just me writing the practical in 6 steps(i should get 6/6 in it), the fill in the blank was static, i got 4 as one of the extention questions, first question was radiowave, microwave, i think the last one was x ray, the copper rod moves to the right, icl i forgot the other questions but i hope this helped. just believe in yourself, i went from a grade 5 in science(mainly cause i cba with science) to a 9-9 predicted cause of vids, forgot about gcses if u dont have anymore exams unlike me who has dt on monday

Yeah but I wanted a 6 and 7 and I think I did really bad even though I was doing a lot of revision
Good luck in your DT exam

Also how many marks do you think I will get for the rock one, I wrote my formulas and working out and everything but my answer was 12.6

For the calculation questions did you do a lot of rearranging for the formulas. For the first 3 marker there was like standard form numbers and I think you had to work out the frequency I got something like 150? Correct?

if you used all the numbers in the question, and rounded the number and wrote all the correct formulas you will get at least half marks(im assuming its a 4 marker)

i think you didnt see my previous comments but i found the paper hella easy, dont let that demotivate u tho since a lot of people didnt try, the person next to me opened the paper and just slepped the minute the exam started so have hope cause at least u did the paper
Did anyone get 150 for an answer for any of the calculation questions if they remember? I don’t know if anyone else experiences this but like i make extremely silly mistakes during the exam and then only released after the exam that I have made that mistake or after the exam I remember key details that I should have added to that exam but didn’t?
