I'm not and I'm scared. I hate questions on buoyancy so here's hoping not too much stuff on those.

Hahaha... ready hell no. gimme another week and ask me that again and the answer will probably be the same XD can we just not get the exam and make pretty drawings? Actually I'll fail that too. I'm hoping to scrap a B, although for most of the stuff I've been getting C's which isn't good.

25 hours after maths and it's physics, I've decided to sleep for about 6 of those hours and then revise for the rest laugh.gif I'm gonna hate the exam, I know it.

I cannot understand why on earth there is no (albiet there is) standard deviation between both maths and physics. laugh.gif

I'm really annoyed about Physics being the day after Maths stupid SQA do they even read the timetable? mad.gif mad.gif

Hmm I'm not ready for it at all, I'm going to be struggling so badly, the whole radioactivity stuff just won't get in my head no matter how much I read it or do questions on it, I still get all ughhh over it.

Maths then physics is really getting on my nerves. I usually like to take the rest of the day off after an exam but nope I can't here!

Nah Radioactivity isn't too bad, i hate all this E.M.F and lost volts etc sad.gif

I hope to get a B for physics wink.gif

Idk...i seem to have issues with the whole course lol!
Dont like impulse and momentum
or capacitors
or photoelectric emission.
The rest of the subject and I just tend to agree to disagree biggrin.gif

I could really do with a big long rest after that hideous maths paper...

Does anyone else see/think that all the exams this year are harder than previous ones?
People doing SG have all been saying that there's were really difficult to, likewise with some of the Adv. Highers?
Lets hopr that they make physics really easy to make up for it biggrin.gif
xx
Beyond it, and us, shines a greater hope and a brighter future
Can't wait 'til the exams are over!

Give me back Standard Grade Physics, so much more simpler than higher! tongue.gif

tongue.gif Radioactivity IS bad when it doesn't stick in your head! I also keep forgetting which one is the Dose Equivalent and stuff... and the efficient? I can't remember I'm screwed. tongue.gif

I'm hoping to pass, or maybe scrap a B....

I'd love to have SG Physics back, two marks for stating what a laser was an abbreviation for or three marks for plugging data into an equation, those were the days. blink.gif

tongue.gif I'm glad it is in the afternoon so I can study before it, although I'm undecided whether to get a good nights sleep or do a lot of revision and sleep for a couple of hours.

Ah.. I did a physics SG past paper for fun a while ago, I miss the straightforwardness of it, it's a shame I found it difficult when I did SG though! biggrin.gif

Haha I'm not even sure what LASER stands for now lol - is it something like Light Emmiting Stimulation Effect of Radiation or something ? I loved SG, why'd it have to go away lol tongue.gif I want it back smile.gif

Is it not now Equivalent Dose? Also, what are you talking about lol smile.gif Sounds like the Radiation Weighting Factor but I can't be sure tongue.gif

I NEED a B in Physics..sad.gif..and to be quite honest, it is highly unlikely.

However, I don't have the excuse of having my Maths exam..thankfully I passed last year. So really I have no excuse for not being ready for the exam tomorrow - other than how lazy I have suddenly (!) become over the past year - again, I blame 6th year tongue.gif

But as for the course, to be honest, I do understand it..most of it anyway, but still, I manage to do very badly - weird, I managed to cope with 5 Highers last year, without too much pain, didn't fail anything (par English NABs..ha, proved them wrong when I passed!)..but this year is just a joke sad.gif
Whoever said money can't buy happiness simply didn't know where to go shopping.
When you feel like giving up...just remember why you held on for so long.

and oh guys, when they ask what is emf..you can just say tpd + lost volts rather than the amount of joules transfered to each coulombs of charge across a source...

I checked the marking instruction and both gain full marks....wtf..that's a bit unfair to candidate who tried their hardest to put it in words... tongue.gif

tongue.gif I've basically just sealed my fate for tomorrow's exam! I have no bloody clue about what i'm on about either! Must get down to my hardcore revision.. which isn't happening right now tongue.gif

Laser is light amplication stimulated emission of radiation is it not? Or am I making up crap again?
