    It was a decent paper next one will be hard though. I have a few questions:

    1. My calculator gave me 3.97x10^22 instead of 3.98 will i lose a mark?

    2. I said use a higher resolution top pan balance to reduce percentage error which it actually does?

    3. I said heat again until mass does not change. is this enough detail?

    4. I got 3.33 for the conc. of KI will they accept this?

    5. I USED 3+ INSTEAD OF +3, DO THEY MARK DOWN FOR THIS?

    sorry for the questions but a bit worried.

    Im guessing 12 marker on EF, mass spec and IR aswell.. Also I think they'll do a hydrolysis mechanism and a big question on ionisation trends. Boltzmann distribution also will come up Im pretty sure
    This has to be a joke. For anyone out their concerned there will NOT be any 12 markers. The highest mark question on any of the 4 depth/breadth specimen/practise papers is 6 marks.

    I said to use a higher resolution scale so hopefully

    I did 0.15/(45/1000) and got 3.33
    Would that be right

    Exactly the same way it was done on this paper, except the guy has condensed his working and put it under the equation

    The questions might require a similar amount of detail as the old spec longer questions to get the same amount of marks as the new six markers

    Grade Boundary predictions?

    I think-

    A- 53
    B-47
    C-40
    D-34
    E-28

    What do you guys think?

    Do you think for the isotopes question you will lose a mark for not mentioning electrons? I just said same number of protons for similarity and different number of neutrons for difference 😬 I did think about writing electrons but I decided not to for some reason

    I did all of these except the first, you may possibly drop at the most 1 mark for the first one but that's it, all of the others I'm sure will be fine

    The unofficial mark scheme for the electron configuration of bromine atom is wrong , 4S2 comes before 3D10

    Got 57 which is either a high b or a low a. On last years boundaries that would be an A but on one of the tougher yars that would be a high b. We will have to wait and see! Btw, for the q regarding how you could decrease the % error, could U say that you could use a measuring device with a greater precision i.e less than 0.005. It is technically correct but would OCR accept this?
    If enough people mention it, they will likely accept it as an answer

    You really think that?.. OCR love to throw in the high 10-12 markers on working out unknown compounds. Just because they're not on the specimen papers. If you look at the majority of the f322 papers, you will find one. Thanks.

    It's a new course, the questions will not be the same as before. The practise and specimen papers are designed to give students a feel for what the papers will be like. There would be no point putting in a question that students were not prepared for as they would just have to drop boundaries

    On a lot of the past papers with these types of questions they accept both. The mark scheme usually has a note next to the answer saying accept 3d10 4s2 OR 4s2 3d10

    They also accept it with 4S2 before 3D10

    For the last q, would it be 2NaOH as you had to remove 2 Br atoms?????

    so 44 would be a high c?
    not sure, work it out as a percentage and compare it to previous years for a rough idea
