Thomas and Robin chat about mocks and how they use them. The podcast ends on a sad note as Thomas talks about a recent family bereavement and asks for donations to Brain research.


For reasons that are explained late in the podcast, Thomas has been feeling very low, and travels to Robin’s house (aka Studio 13) for a chat about Mocks. When and what do we set for the exams and how do we use them?

Robin hurts Thomas’ brain with some entanglement Physics in the News. Thomas then explains his choice of papers for A-Level mocks (the previous Year’s AS paper) and the two teachers discuss using practical work in revision.
