Well paper 1 pretty much covered most of waves but don’t count on there being NO waves on Friday. Polarisation wasn’t touched and standing waves only came up in the multiple choice.
I would be very surprised if there was any more archimedes, resolving forces, resisitivity or Hookes Law on Friday. Acceleration and motion graphs were also pretty well covered.
The elctricity questions were brief so don’t be surprised if some more electricity turns up.
So what’s left? Photoelectric effect, moments and projectiles are the three big omissions and if for some reason I could only revise three topics before Friday it would be these three.
There was no practical method either so expect a meaty experimental method question.
Now that the mocks are over you have access to all past papers including the last year’s June 17 series:
On Wednesday 31st January Stuart Atkinson from the Eddington Astronomical Society will be speaking in Barrow at The Forum in Duke Street, LA14 1HH.
His subject is ‘Pluto Revealed – The New Horizons Mission’ and the talk starts at 7:30pm, is arranged by IMechE, PESC and ICE but is free to visitors.
If you are considering a career in Engineering and would like to be considered for a £100 bursary from Barrow and District Association of Engineers then complete the application form available from Mr Thompson and return it to him by 3:30pm on the 9th October.
Consideration will be given to extra-curricular engineering related activities as well as academic performance.
Any questions – ask Mr T.
The IoP have changed their membership structure so that 11-16 year olds can no longer be members. INSTEAD you should sign up for resources and support here:
If you are already a member then you will need to apply through the link above as well.
This lecture is earlier than normal this year so I have been caught by surprise – sorry for the short notice.
Robin Catchpole, an astronomer from Cambridge University gives a lecture in the Forum in Barrow every year. If you have any interest in astronomy / cosmology this is unmissable.
7.30pm – Main Hall – Forum – Barrow – Weds 6th September
A final reminder to year 12 to hand in your textbooks to Mr Thompson IN PERSON before the end of term. If you are going to be away for the final week, you need to remember to return your book before you go.
Higher Apprentices from BAe will deliver presentations aimed at students studying physics, maths, chemistry and / or biology
