I know it's early, but I have decided to make a thread to discuss the new CFE Advanced Higher Physics.
I am aware that some school (including mine) sat the old SQA higher. Consequently, some of us have missed some of the vital topics which will enhance our knowledge in the New Advanced Higher. Therefore, it would be nice to discuss these topics in detail before the new qualification is valid after the old Higher Exam.

The Specimen Paper Link (Just came out last month, looks good)

Course Assessment Specification Link: (Although, it says the exam is out of 100 marks in this, the specimen paper is out of 140... Can someone explain why?)
