    Ah that's ok. I thought we need to know more than that. Thanks Zhy.

    Also, what stuff like heating under flux and distillation?

    This might help you. It was made by my teacher and really helped me last year.

    Least you appreciated it, I don't understand why someone has rated it down :confused:

    Yeah I did it last year and am retaking all the AS's to get more UMS points... I got just under an A last year but I found it really hard. After doing A2 content its a lot lot easier.

    Just do past papers, and the legacy papers and you should be fine.

    Yeah some people neg just for the fun of it which is annoying.

    I'm gonna start past papers next week as I've still got revision content to cover.

    Yeah I just forgot on stuff like that but remembered again later in the mock. I didn't know how to answer why it had E/Z isomer.

    But the last question you do not really have to do. My teachers gives us a mark out of 80 because the article is invalid and we just concentrate on our actual article which we will do in May and dont even look at ouR mock ones.

    Same with my class. Only one person got an A. I got a C but will be retaking next year so I can focus more time on F332.
    Our college is reasonably good in my area, (we are a state school). We got 7 As ,including me, out of about 60 students doing chemistry in F331 and a few getting over 10 in each Skills test, I got 11,11,12,11. And i think I got 6/6 in Skills 1 (which will probably be scaled to 11 or 12).
    Good idea on focusing on F332, 150 UMS!!!!!

    Edit: Anyone know how Skills one actually works??

    Yea but my class still had to do it but its okay i guess because some of the questions were answerable without the article tbh... oh well... i wished our pre release was shorter tho... :/ its too long and takes time to scan through it in the exma
