AQA Combined Science Trilogy Physics Paper 2 Revision and 2020 Exam Support

All spec codes must be examined through a three-year period with AQA exams. This is a spec code frequency analysis of the 2018 and 2019 exams for both foundation and higher exam papers leading to very specific lesson focus and pupil revision. It highlights spec codes that HAVE NOT appeared in the last two years of exams or have a low relative frequency, leading to a very high probability of most of them appearing in summer 2020.
This tool has analysed 2018 and 2019 foundation and higher exam papers and completed a frequency count of each spec code. This summarises into a combined table to prepare for the 2020 exams.
It highlights spec codes that have not been assessed by showing as green. It colours through a spectrum of green to red, of other specs which have been assessed, but infrequently. It shows this by a simple count and relative frequency to the number of spec codes. The relative analysis tool shows how common it has appeared relative to the number of spec points. A low spec count could still have a high relative count showing a lower probability. There is also a combined summary for F and H papers if you teach mixed groups.
Each analysis is shown graphically leading to easy displays for pupils to review key areas and target their focus.
On the following tabs there is a full spec checklist filterable by their appearance in either F, H or both so pupils can view this information in a checklist explaining each spec point. This has then lead to a checklist revision list for both F and H papers and a ranking order of likely topics to appear in the 2020 papers starting with units where a spec has not been assessed and then leading into those with low relative frequencies.
Exam questions have been made into F and H assessment/revision document from AQA past papers and has been made specifically themed on these areas to help support and lead revision up to the summer exams. All markschemes and examiner reports are included.
Hopefully this will lead to a more productive approach, in terms of revision topics and time management, for both pupils and teachers.
