hey does anyone know why there's the whole "crude oil" bit in the syllabus for chemistry c1a, but not in the practise exam papers on the AQA website, or has the exam totally changed from previous years?
Exams have changed drastically for you lot this year. The AQA Science papers I sat last year were the last of the 'Curriculum 2000' and all the syllabus were withdrawn after June 2007- so there shouldn't be any past papers for the papers you're sitting now.
Sorry, I mean- those in year 10 2 years ago were the last ones to start that GCSE. Whereas last year you started another syllabus in year 10, and at the same time the year 11s carried on with the old syllabus. So there'd be papers from when you were in year 10, but not any earlier. I hope that's clearer.
