Shahed – Higher Level

What a lovely paper! I was nervous before going into the exam but it turns out, there was no need to be. Everything that I’d studied had come up!

The section A questions were lovely, especially the Joules’ law question. I also did the refractive index and the speed of sound in air questions, both of which were nice, too.

In section B, I found the most challenging question to be the one about Particle Physics. It’s a simple topic, but the questions were a little odd. Thankfully, there’s a lot of choice in the exam, so this didn’t set me back. The Nuclear Physics, Mechanics, Electricity and Light questions were all straight forward. I found that I had time to do an extra question, which never happens to me in Physics, so I must have done something right!

Physics has always been one of my favourite subjects, so I couldn’t be happier with how it went. To anyone else who still has exams left, good luck! The end is in sight.
