The good news: AS exams are now over and I have a week off
The better news: Unit 2 of Physics went well! Reasonably confident about that paper, and was quite lucky in the questions they set. There were quite a few electricity calculations which I can generally do, so I’m happy about that.
The bad news: the final paper was a complete and utter unmitigated disaster. And in case you think I’m over-reacting, consider that even Hiten complained of a lack of time, and Robert decided 10 minutes in to junk Solid Materials and do Astrophysics instead! When someone does a module we haven’t been taught at all, you know things are bad. I’m sure he’ll do better than I did too. Annnnd I made exactly the same mistake I did waaay back in Unit 1 in January. Ouch.
Physics is broken down thusly:
Unit 1 – 30% – I’ve got a B in that (might retake)
Unit 2 – 30% – Reasonably confident about that paper?
Unit 3 – [20% – Practical exam which went OK &
20% – Solid Materials disaster]
So judging on that… I have absolutely no idea how I’ll do. Oh well. Happy end-of-AS to all.
