Higher Level Physics: no nasty surprises this year
There was nothing nasty or unexpected in a fair, balanced Leaving Certificate Physics Higher Level paper, according to teacher Pat Doyle.
However, he said students who achieved full marks in Section A will have earned them.
“In Section A, the last part of each question was a little tricky and required a deeper understanding of the physics involved” said the Institute of Education teacher.
Meanwhile, he said Section B will have rewarded a hard working student
Mr Doyle did query the last part of Section B, Question 6 “a maths question about a golf ball leaving the ground at a particular angle”.
He thought it debatable whether it was on the syllabus and said students may have found it slightly challenging.
