Greetings all.

Just wondering how many of the people here did the 3.25 hours physics olympiad paper on Friday? How did it go? Mine was pretty...pretty bad. How is yours?

Anyone know when are we going to get the result?

*Don't forget, SMC is on Tuesday.

I didn't do it (don't do physics ) but it seemed OK to me, I could do a fair bit of q1, another question and q9...

You should get the result in about 4 weeks.

Although edders ain't here, I think it's safe to say that you can post after the exam, but beforehand, no-no

And i'd just revise all of A-Level physics if I were you.

Its after the exam for most people
But not for me...

I ain't gonna bother revising for it but will revise my module 4 physics for the January exam hopefully something similar will come up in one of the questions.

Hopefully I can guess enough to get through. If not, it doesn't matter too much; I think one of the papers after is 5 hours, can't be arsed with that. Well thats my excuse anyway

Cheers anyway

One word to summarise it: Impossible!!!

I don't see anyone getting a good mark unless they have a degree in physics.

I was thiking "WTF?" during 99% of the paper

Question 1 was almost longer than whole A2/AS Modules!!!

Well I guessed most of it and I can only hope...

yup i agree 9 was fairly straight forward
just a case of drawing a good graph and estimating the half life
can't remember 2nd part though

but I guessed most of the other questions other than the ones about simple mechanics which were easy too.

There was no need for a graph for the first 13 marks there was a nice trick.
