What do we all think for tommorow?
Coincedently, I think that the radiation question will be a half-value thickness question as opposed to a nuclear reaction equation question - just noticed they seem to alternate every year.
Aside from that, just generally s***ing it like the rest of you tbh! biggrin.gif

Beyond it, and us, shines a greater hope and a brighter future
Can't wait 'til the exams are over!

It will be harder than last year, just because SQA is plain evil.

biggrin.gif My thoughts are that the chances of me getting a B is like hell freezing over. I'm settling on a C hopefully not fail! tongue.gif

If i fail I fail, there's no chance I'm ever EVER resitting physics again. I want nothing to do with it anymore tongue.gif that's a lie cause there's always gravity - sorry gravitation field strength and all that physics jazz that keeps us alive.

Good luck all!! xx

PFFT!! 67% is at least a B, depending on how hard the exam is 67% can be an A

Good luck Physicists!

Just do your best and remember that once you've sat it there's nothing you can do - so don't worry about it!

An average of 67% on Past Papers, 2000 to 2005, would equal an A, just though. 2006 on the otherhand it's a shortfall of 11%.
