Does anybody have any predictions for likely topics to come up? 🤗
Does anybody have any predictions for likely topics to come up? 🤗

Idk about any topics that would come up in particular, but as we are getting all of the equations my teacher thinks there will be a lot of marks on conversions between units ( ms - s - min - hr, KJ and stuff like that) and also core practicals.
I personally hope that any 6 markers are not on core practicals but random ones that you have to make up as i seem to do best on those!
These are my predictions :
Topic 1 motion and forces:

Newtons laws - they tend to pick on these either specifically or just needing them to back up any points for random 2-3 markers

Distance/Time and Velocity/Time graphs, i think these may come up as they can get confusing if you forget which is which

Topic 2 Conservation of energy:

Stores and transfers - i know this is kinda generic but they often have the most random questions and make you explain how the energy has been transferred, e.g. a potato in a microwave

Topic 3 Waves and the EM spectrum:

Lenses - the lense and ray diagrams i think will come up

Longitudinal/Transverse waves - describing the differences with examples as a potential 3-4 mark

6 marker describing the diff betweeen Alpha,Gamma and Beta radiation maybe, it seems like the main one that they would go for and also can be hard to remember them all

6 marker Nuclear fusion/fission, they may have done this last year but might repeat it as either a smaller or larger question.

Half life, using a graph maybe ??

Topic 5 Astronomy:

formation of the universe witht the different theories as this often come up in the exams

maybe a 6 marker on lifecyle of stars as its popular with edexel

Generally:
Get used to linking equations together and get very confident on all of the standard units for each needed one .
I think it will be a harder paper as we get the equations but the grade boundries will be lower which is nice i guess

Good luck for you exams and i hope this wasnt too vague and somewhat helpful
Waves will 1000% come up same with astronomy
Are we getting a formula sheet w all the formula on it ?

I believe so

Yes
Good luck everyone!!!

My predictions are the two six markers will be Life Cycle of a star and how nuclear power stations are kept in control

for the power station one, would it be about moderators, control rods and dealing with waste etc???

yeah you would talk about how control rods and moderators control the chain reaction

how did everyone find it?
pretty decent. no 6 marker on nuclear reactors but oh well
How did it go?

it was really good!!!
I think that was actually awful I am panicking

just like maths , the formula sheet for physics was absolutely useless

same but m bad at physics 😭
