Past Paper Questions


Here you can find past paper resources. There is a good range consisting of the following

  • Genuine whole current spec past papers
  • "Themed" current spec' past paper questions
  • "Themed" previous spec' past paper questions


Course Specification and Current Spec' Past Papers:


The link below should take you to many of the current spec' past papers. Often the most recent paper is available only to teachers. Copies of these
papers are available in school.

This is a link to the AQA Physics A Specification, past papers and markschemes


Current Spec' Themed Papers:






Previous Spec' Unit 1 Themed Papers

Previous Spec' Unit 2 Themed Papers


The following documents are "themed papers" in that they contain all the past questions I can find on a particular topic. These are ideal if you have a particular weakness you need to address

Mechanics
Materials
Waves
SUVAT


Hooke's Law


General


Motion Graphs


Young's Modulus


Standing Waves


Projectiles


Density


Refraction


Scalar & Vector



Interference

(No cut down Mark Scheme yet)
Gravity Fields

Circular Motion

Electric Fields

Capacitors

SHM

Magnetic Fields



Unit 4: Section B (Written about 1 hour) Themed Papers

Further Mechanics

Momentum


Gravity Fields


Circular Motion

Note there is a real shortage of past
Circular Motion questions, some
are sort of covered by gravity.
We'll use another source of questions
