Exam discussion on The Student Room was a lot to process

It's hard to contain all the excitement about mechanisms

What people are saying about A-level Chemistry Paper 2 on The Student Room

I felt that it was so much better than paper one. But I'm not too sure about the six-marker question and I definitely failed the NMR questions T-T


6 marker was awful. NMR took too much of my brain energy and time but I got there in the end. I think. I hope.
Mechanisms were good

Not too confident walking out of this


idk why but i felt like all my calculations were dodgy
