Hey how did every 1 find 2 days exam.
Im pretty pleased about it, i thought it was not that bad, just maybe a few things here and there that i had to really think about, but overall i though it was fairly straight forward.

Hey i just thought id make a poll after 2 days exam 2 see wat u all expect to get.
I am hoping for an A, but i think i might get a B.
i want 2 do Adv Physics next year so i really want an A!
Although im pretty confident, even though i was predicted a C, thats cuz the teacher doesnt like, but hey thats a different story.

I agree - there were a couple of questions that stumped me for a few minutes but nothing we couldn't handle. A pretty fair paper tongue.gif

I found it ok, just way too many of those I, II, III questions in the multi-choice, they're quite a problem to me.

I know for certain that i made 2 mistakes in the multi choice, and throughout the paper there were a couple of bits that i didn't even know an equation for, 1 being: -

23) (ii) Show that the difference in pressure between the top and the bottom surfaces of the manifold is 3.0x1064 Pa


But other than that, i would expect a B at least, and perhaps an A smile.gif

I found it difficult but if we're all honest that doesn't say much about the exam.

I thought it was OK.

I hope I can sometime soon download the answers for the papers and see how I did on the multiple choice etc!

Forgot to say , the physics teacher at my school (the one that writes the red study book tongue.gif and is jsut lovely biggrin.gif ) said that at first glance it looked not bad but then she said you don't know until you actually work through it. Teacher at the bf's school said it was a tough paper.

well i thot it was hard. I thot some of the multiple choice were pretty tough just like last years paper. I thought it generally could have been worse but i still dont think that it was that straight forward. Thought last years paper, the written part, was quite a bit easier!

I thought it was harder than any past papers from the book but still not too difficult. A few of the multi-choice were quite tricky i thought

Ahh I hate those! I didn't bring my paper home with me but I remember for all of those questions I picked the answer "I, II and III", did anyone else do something similar?

i would agree with that Blaze the paper seemed to have most of the harder content in it. Everyone i spoke to after the exam also found it hard but i don't know anymore certainely in the exam hall i wasn't happy but i did answers all the questions and got logical looking answers for the equations. I suppose what i am saying is i am quite happy really

Two more left and i'm finished biggrin.gif

If i am not here i am somewhere else

Can people post their prelim percentage and what grade they think they got in the exam?

I got 84% in my prelim and I think **think** I got an A in the exam. Fingers crossed! tongue.gif

About 3 questions in multichoice really had me, but I came back to them after doing the rest of the multichoice and that was fine. For example, I panicked on question three after not being able to remember whether it was elastic or inelastic collisions where the vehicles get stuck together. When I came back to it I could easy tell I and III were true, and there was no answer for I, II and III being true, so I could tell what the correct answer was.

I also panicked a wee bit after the first written question was different from usual (expected it to be a projectiles question). In fact, I temporarily forgot v=u+at. But I was able to do it eventually. Then, however, I realised that after folding the question paper over I'd missed out question 21! I was rather pleased I could remember the cosine rule when I finally did that question as I'd be damned if I'd do a scale drawing.

The paper did seem harder than past papers I've tried, but after initial difficulties I was able to answer everything and I was reasonably happy when I checked over. It really did seem like I was working too slow all the way through but I did have plenty time to check over at the end.
