The New Unit 1 Physics

GCSE Physics changed in 2011

Before 2011, people used to study:

Analogue & Digital Signals, Radioactivity + Telescopes

But no-one does that in Unit 1 anymore!

After 2011, people now study:

Solids, Liquids & Gases, Evaporation & Condensation,

Specific Heat Capacity & U-Values, Cost-Effectiveness,

Waves, Reflection, Refraction, Diffraction& Sound.

But no-one used to do that in Unit 1 in the old days!

The New Unit 1 Physics

GCSE Physics changed in 2011

Before 2011, exams were 45 minutes for 45 marks

After 2011, exams are now 60 minutes for 60 marks

There is also a new 6 mark question that says:

“In this question you will be assessed on using good English, organising information clearly and using specialist terms where appropriate.”


New unit 1 physics tips

New Unit 1 Physics Tips

Compare the advantages and disadvantages of buying compact fluorescent bulbs rather than filament bulbs. [6]

Here are some advantages of compact fluorescent bulbs:

They are four times more efficient than filament bulbs, they are cheaper to use, they last 8 times longer and they are better for the environment.

The disadvantages of compact fluorescent bulbs are:

They cost 24 times as much to buy as filament bulbs, disposal is a problem because of their poisonous mercury vapour and they have a shortened lifespan if they are turned on and off very frequently.
