OCR Physics A - Practical exam - 20% of grade! watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi there,

    Found out today I have my practical exam in the next two to three weeks, now I am totally unsure on where to read, what to know what to do, if there is any chance of knowing something to do with what kind of experiment, how to do the write up, just some general information.

    Please help I'm sure there are others whom have done it ! / Doing it !

    Thanks so much.

    It's actually three exams. Two of which involve doing a practical and answering questions/doing calculations. The other involving you analysing data given to you.

    I've done all three but haven't had the marks back yet. Fairly straightforward really, though I think analysing ("evaluative" ) was my weakest.

    There are apparently quite a few you can do if you mess ones up. We've been told we'll be doing at least one other lot regardless of how we've just done.

    I'm hoping this 20% will make up for that dire exam in January...
