If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

An A but no idea how I managed that! Found all the explain questions really hard, especially the page going on about a float in a swimming pool. IMPOSSIBLE!

A B, i'm not 100% happy with it, as i really worked my buttocks off for an A and most likely, i missed another A by 1% again!

I got an A! Was kind of expecting it though because I found the exam pretty straightforward. Apparently it was a Band 1 A too (which I wasn't expecting)!

I totally <3 physics - prolly my favourite subject, but having got a D in the prelim and a generally poor performance, I was pretty down beat. Then came easter classes which bumped me up massively and I ended up with an A. Its still unbelievable. wow lol.

It goes to show that with work anything is possible - my friend went from a fail in his higher physics prelim two years ago to an A in the exam.

It's true... I started out failing nearly every class test or getting Cs if I ever passed them until along came an A out of the blue for the prelim and now have ended up with an A in the final exam! Work enough and you can do anything.
