Thanks very much for all your comments - they have been very helpful. DS1 is getting down to some work and attending his schools holiday revision classes. He sets himself tasks for each day - but won't make out a timetable. This is fine, although I pushed for him to do some work on the subjects he hates first, helped him with it and he seems relieved that he's made a start there. His teachers have asked for pieces of work and test questions to be handed in - he seems to appreciate a bit of help and a push to get these done. It is still tortuous, but he is working and I'm happy this is constructive and he's not sitting there overwhelmed by it all as I think he was a few weeks ago (hence the anger and general denial - small chunks and help with the subjects he'd rather ignore has helped I think)
....we'll carry on....thanks again!
Contribution: 1/3 of the overall mark for the course.
This paper includes synoptic questions that draw on any of the topics in the specification as well as the core practicals studied throughout the course.
Note: Overall, a minimum of 20% of the marks across the three papers will be awarded for mathematics at Level 2 or above.
Science Practical Endorsement: In addition to the three written exams at the end of the course, the course offers a Science Practical Endorsement which is composed of 18 Core Practicals that are taught as part of the two year course. These are designed to allow students to learn a range of practical skills and apply key experimental techniques, thus developing both a conceptual and theoretical understanding of experimental methods. As such they also constitute a key element within the Paper 3 exam.
This is the driving force that pushes the current round. This is measured in volts (V) Resistance
This is anything in the circuit that slows the flow of current down. This is measured in ohms ( W ) Ohm's Law shows that:
