I’ve just realised that most of you who are learning Advanced Higher Physics in Scotland have about 100 teachers behind you providing resources, input etc. Ponder that!
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.
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.
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.

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!
Here is the detailed document for the new project marking scheme. I’ll get the new single page marking scheme ready asap.
