This paper is way better than paper 1 IMO so hopefully I do better even though paper 1 was pretty much smooth sailing for the most part

i feel like its so hard to guess what they are on but i usually reckon its safe to say they wont do too much from the 2021 and 2022 paper, could be wrong tho
To be honest, judging by the nature of Paper I, Paper II should have similarities in its nature compared to 2021 and 2022, not too different; the only challenge is grade boundaries reverting back to pre-COVID (probs. 2019 ish)

Ye I thought about that for grade boundaries but the 2019 grade boundaries where barely even 1% higher than the 2022 boundaries at least in the higher grades

For practice after doing past paper exam questions would it be better to do the old spec questions or try another exam boards, if so what exam board would be the best for preparing for the hard questions

I would do old exam board content as it is much more similar and the questions aren't too different just different formats of test

i think old spec r a bit easier. u cld try international a level edexcel- they have some harder questions

since last year's paper didn't have any long answer questions on space and fluids, can we assume they'll def come up this year?

No you can't assume anything. Be prepared for any question
What are some common six marker topics and points that can be used in a multitude of different questions e.g. waves polarisation stuff and photoelectric effect?
Is the derivation for pressure of an ideal gas likely to be in the exam?

It's on the spec so they can ask it
would it just be a straight up 6 mark question?

I don't think the entire derivation would be a question because it would be like 9 marks but maybe a section of it
has anyone done the specimen paper on pmt? I found it way harder than the other past papers
