Frequently Asked Questions

I am stuck on a question, can you help me please?
I am happy to answer your questions. However, you need to:

  • be specific, rather than saying ‘I don’t understand electricity’.
  • show some attempt at the question and tell me the part you don’t understand.
  • send me direct links to the questions you have rather than giving a question number and paper name. Even better, tweet me a picture or screenshot.

Can you answer chemistry or biology questions?
No, physics or maths only

IAL was introduced in January 2014 so there are no papers before that.
