    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.
    There is a complete lack of a elemental analysis, IR and mass spec question on the breadth paper. They are often at the end of F322. I am thinking one of these might appear at the end of the depth paper and carry a lot of marks!

    I don't think you would be allowed to upload it yet because schools may need it for mock purpose, etc.

    Can you PM me the paper? Also do you have the ms for it too?

    You cannot access OCR's Mark scheme. It will be published on results day on OCR Interchange. It is my opinion that the answers posted in this thread yesterday are correct!

    For the very last Q I put "aqueous alkali " do you think that would get the mark ? Thanks

    hi does anyone have a list of the topics that came up in the paper yesterday, or list of things they think may come up in the depth paper? thanks

    For the last q, would it be 2NaOH as you had to remove 2 Br atoms?????
    It asked for reagent so NaOH should be acceptable

    But you shouldn't lose marks for 2NaOH, or any other suitable metal hydroxide that is soluble
    I am not sure about Mg(OH)2 as a couple people put that and it isn't too soluble in water.

    It might accept OH-(aq) as previous mark schemes have accepted that but not seen it accepted when written in words
    Maybe BoD but at most it might lose 1 mark as I think it was out of 3

    Revision guide says it has to be eithier NaOH or KOH

    Please upload it - could you at least PM me it? I'd like to figure out what wasn't covered so that I can revise for those topics.

    Calculate the minimum volume of H2SO4 needed to completely react with the NaOH
    i got 49.6 something like that

    The ocr textbook page 120 says that silver sulfate is insoluble so shouldn't that multiple choice question be D - effervescence and precipitate?
    That's what I thought.

    Silver nitrate was in the test tube. When nitric acid was added, no precipitate was formed as there were no halide ions to react with the silver ions. The nitric acid just serves to remove unwanted reactants that might affect your results

    Exactly my point. Can't see any other way IR/Mass spec will come up unless its only a little two mark question.

    I got 3.33 too but I am not sure if thay would be accepted
    Yh I was getting worried about that, oh well hopefully depth is like the specimens and we'll make it up

    Silver nitrate only forms a precipitate with the halogens (bromine, chlorine, iodine etc) I think there will be no change if calcium carbonate or something else is added to it, so the answer was C.

    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
    The new specification does not ask questions that are worth 12 marks any longer. The maximum high marks awarded in our papers will be 6. So, we will have 2 or 3 six markers in the depth paper, but it is more likely to be 2.
