Year 12 – I have been through paper one and noted down (roughly) the number of marks on each part of the syllabus. See here.Paper 1 breakdown
Paper 1 was very straightforward so be prepared for paper 2 to be HARD!!!!!
ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING CAN COME UP ON PAPER 2 BUT THE FOLLOWING WERE HARDLY ON PAPER 1 AT ALL.
Car stopping distances, acceleration, centre of mass, moments / couples/ torques, KE / gPE / power / efficiency, newton’s 1st and 3rd laws, resistivity, thermistors / LDRs, paying for electricity, reflection, refraction, diffraction, polarisation, interference / young’s slits, harmonics, stationary waves in air columns, photoelectric effect.
Here is the list of definitions you should know by heart before the exam.
‘Learning’ means you can recall them unaided just as easily as you can recall your name unaided.
Apologies for the incorrect link in the Uni Taster Day Post earlier in the week – hopefully this one works:
Year 12 – the paper 2 you have done this week is now in the past papers folder with its mark scheme.
There are a couple of errors in the mark scheme which we will highlight in lessons.
START LEARNING DEFINITIONS EXACTLY AS THEY APPEAR IN THE KERBOODLE TEXTBOOK.
