Overall, this year’s paper was a fair paper with less mixing of topics than previous years. A well-prepared student would have welcomed this exam. This was a nice paper which allowed the students to show off their knowledge of Physics and not seeking to catch anyone out.
In this year’s paper, students had a similar situation to the traditional Leaving Certificate DCG paper with the usual set amount of core questions A and B being assessed. The only change this year was Section C, being only assessed on one studied question rather than two.
A fair paper that followed the layout of previous years and held no big surprises. Students who were well prepared and had spent time practising previous exam questions would have been happy and with the choices available on both sides of the paper and with the phrasing of questions.
