    Oh yes, I have a couple of documents that may also come in handy.

    This one's from Edexcel, thought it might help with some of the practical type questions:

    And here's a summary of all organic reactions:

    In my attempt to get all reactions onto a single A4 page, I made it a little confusing. Anyway, use it if you can decipher it!

    I really want to do well in unit 2, and I want it to be slightly less stressful in A2 so want to get a good high A in this exam...
    Good luck second time round!

    Well chem 2 is worth the most out of all the modules so that's a good plan
    I don't even need to resist, my twin did so she made me so we could "revise together" hahaha luckily my other exams aren't until mid-late June so not too much of a stress

    Good luck with the exam

    my chemistry teacher told us that this unit 2 is more just learning it off, than actually understanding it. i know there's a certain amount that has to be understood to get top marks, but do you agree that it's mostly just learning what the books say? i'm not so sure?

    Read the HSWs. My teacher says they could ask questions from that part.

    Oh I thought Unit 1 2 4 and 5 were worth equal amounts for the overall grade

    Ahh Snap! I have a twin too But he doesn't do the same board as me (We go to different schools)

    That's what I thought but then I found out chem 2 is 47% of the AS level, chem 1 is 33 %

    Aww you go to different schools what's that like?

    Ahh I'm more prepared than I was for unit 1 so hoping to do better on this paper anyway so I guess it's better that unit 2 is worth more

    You get used to it lol I can't imagine what it would be like if he came to my school :curious:

    Okay thanks, most of the green chemistry is linked in with section C though right so majority of the answers are in the question?

    Btw what textbooks do you all use?

    This is off the aqa website, if you go on page 2 it tells you how much each module is worth and what they're out of
