    Hey

    Well our teacher told us that we have a chemistry practical evaluation next week and it will be on "synthesis and analysis of aromatic esters".

    To anyone whos done it, how did you find it? easy? hard? Also can you tell me what to concentrate my revision on?

    I've done this. I got 23/25, apparently. It was fairly easy, easier than I was expecting at least, but I don't think it's fair to give you any more information than that. Just revise what you've been doing in class (synthesis, analysis, aromatic compounds and esters), and you should be fine.

    Oh and by the way, no one will care that you're offering rep - you have no rep power.

    Oops, yes, you're absolutely right. I've done the evaluative and a qualitative one, which makes 15+10=25. When I typed that message I didn't realise I was quoting the combined score for the two parts together. My score for the evaluative was 14/15 - but to be honest, it makes no difference to you anyway.

    There's something I'm dying you tell you about this paper, but I best not, seeing as it's against TSR rules I'm afraid.

    Pretty similar in terms of structure. I've done evaluative and qualitative, and the only differences really are the areas that were covered in them.

    Yeah, please don't give away content that features in the practical as that could help someone to cheat, which we don't want =)

    Are there a lot of equations involved in the Evaluative task or is it mainly theory? I can't remember the AS coursework at all. :eek:
