AH SQA pastpapers

Doing past papers at the moment? Below is a link to a helpful site to give you hints if you get stuck on past papers without revealing the answer. Thanks to Mr Hopely for this. It is also useful for Chemistry, Maths, and other subjects we don’t offer here.

Compendium

Below is the 2021 compendium with the annotated relationships sheet. I’ve left the 2020 compendium here too, for those that don’t want to include the Annotated Relationships Sheet. I’ve added a separate file to that too. Please get in touch if you find a mistake or typo.

WELCOME!

To the Advanced Higher Section. Keep up to date with how long it is until your Advanced Higher Physics exam, check on information for your Project, find past papers, marking instructions and course reports.

I wish you every success as you pass through this special year. Keeping going when the unconditional offers come in is tough, so try to complete your project in plenty of time, and if possible by Christmas. It is the best way to feel confident about the whole process.

Useful documents

The data sheet that you’ll find in the exam papers. Make sure you keep a copy for SQA practice questions. Please note that it changes every year if something is needed to be added so always check it at the start of your exam.

The Relationships Sheet, containing formulae for AH, H, a few maths equations and a periodic table.

This is fully editable

If you are working digitally you might want to pin this relationships sheet and use it to cut and paste into your answers.

I’m working on these! I might get some more done over the Summer holidays, it depends on other things

This document is important to all NQ SQA Physics courses and should be read carefully. It will enlighten you to how your exam will be marked. I am trying to learn each case, so hopefully in a few years, you can test me!

  1. Hi,

    I am an advanced higher physics student attending a school in Edinburgh. I was wondering if you have any virtual physics videos for rotational motion and astrophysics as I found them very useful.

    Also, is there a virtual video for all the topics in electromagnetism and quanta and waves?

    I have been using your site since National 5 and it has helped me to do well each year. I especially found the revision plan for higher and national 5 useful. This is because I struggled to start revising and this helped me to organise and plan my revision effectively.

    For future reference, is this your site email or just a tutor email?

    Thanks

  2. Hi, you sent a message to an AH tutor, so I hope you don’t mind that I’ve posted your message and reply here. Your school will have access to the Virtual Physics which they can get through their Institute of Physics Coaches. I have completed all the ELECTROMAGNETISM videos but I’ll work my way through the Rotational Motion and Astrophysics over Christmas. I’ll have to look what I’ve already done. If I do it without sound they can be quite quick to do.
    Glad you’re enjoying the resources and thanks for visiting the site- it makes it all worthwhile.

    1. I’ve put up a couple of videos on the Rotational Motion and Astrophysics section. Can you tell me if you prefer audio or not. Thanks
