Dr Catchpole is a very interesting speaker and his lectures are always really well attended.
Good to add to your personal statements.
The full list of barrow lectures is also available here for you to pick and choose from.
All lectures free – no ticket necessary
Please bring your books on THURSDAY morning.
Well it was really nice to see so many questions on Friday that we went through on Wednesday!
As far as the Unified paper is concerned I can’t make any predictions. Pretty much everything has been covered to some level in the 2 papers so far so everything is up for grabs in the final paper.
PLEASE bring your text books on Friday – make sure your name is on them otherwise I will be chsing you for them next week
Best of luck for Friday,
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:
