I hope I'm not gonna jinx myself with my lack of modesty but I reckon I'll get in the high 90s raw.

No matter how easy you thought the exam was there's always this thing called marking criteria! if you leave one thing out you will not get the mark whereas you can Bullshit all you like for 3 pages and stuff and you still won't get the marks because you haven't written what they wanted to read!

they did it to us for our trials.... we thought the test was hard but the marking criteria turned out to be harder! we had one guy at 80 a handful of guys in the 70s, and the rest was.... the rest

and I'm talking about raw marks... trust me they'll find a way to differentiate marks!

Put it this way, if you write 3 pages of bullshit, there is no way you cant get full marks, the answer will have to be there somewhere, unless you really are way off the mark.
but true, many markers mark up to the dot, if a word or sentence isnt there, then you lose the mark
thats the main thing im worrying about. The fact that im confident i anwered the question, how well is the thing im worried about.

i know lugia, i have like one D only
but im sure there are other D's. It always happens to me in phys, i have always done mulitple questions wif like only one D or B, and i always end up wif 10/15
but im pretty sure that there arent that many D's in this test, cause these questions were pretty easy.

lol, suprisingly thats the only D i got
i think they try to do that so that the weaker physics students will start expressing doubt over their answers, and then begin to change them. lets hope that they do hehe

half way between the gutter and the stars
not me:D i'm not changin' i stand by 15/15 for MC. as for the rest.....criteria marking, shit.
by the way, that pendulum one. i know you were suppose to find g from the gradient but couldn't. do you think i'll loose marks just using the formula?......:confused:

no, you needed to use the formula to determine g

if you look at the formula, its (rearranged):

g=(2pi)^2(T^2/L)

where (2pi)^2 is just a constant, and T^2/L is the gradient of the curve.

yay I got 9.67 too

I estimate a raw mark in the 70's, and I'd b happy with that, considering phys is my worst subject..

Did you guys use origin in calculation. We didn't.
Maybe there data and graphing was dodgy
