    Yes, however, it seems to me that not everyone revised as much as they should have, they took the exam lightly and some people in my cohort dropped at least 20 marks

    Remember that this year we don't have the Oxbridge lot, so, it'll still be a normal bell curve. I wouldn't worry!
    Yes that's true, thanks very much

    I'm worrying that I forgot to work out the % of Cu in the sample but at the same time didn't think it was needed haha:/

    LOL aqa Caught us out in exam conditions - we forgot that it was a copper carbonate and even later in the paper - the p4 one caught me out - easily dropped around 15-17 marks in the paper
    Just focus on chem 2 now and the other 4th and 5th uniy exams and we can hopefully save ourselves

    Look end of day. your human and we all make mistakes - if you tried your best thats all that matter and it will reflect in a grade
    dont dwell as by doing that we will repeat the failure of last year - keep in mind you have 140 120 120 ums still available for grabs!
    If you want to like discuss for future exam im more than likely to help or take help from you

    This is true. If you feel you have done badly in one exam don't let it put you down. If you let this happen you will end up doing worse on future exams than what you are really capable of. Just do what I do. Forget everything I remember about the exam and move foward. If you do bad in one exam and super well in another then it cancels out and it was sufficient enough. Good luck

    You can do well on chem 4-5 which still has 240 ums available and its really more straight forward memory work in these units!

    I don't vividly remember what I wrote but I definitely worked out the percentage of Cu C O and H :P I remember I had to reread the question. I know I got the moles and all worked out but when I worked out the mole ratio I got that answer 😳 Il prob lose a couple of marks

    Yeah hopefully! It's just unit 1 I hate because they know the content is easy and so make the papers difficult

    I wish I had time to reread the question at the end and I might have picked up on the Cu,I usually always remember to make sure the percentages add up to 100

    Same here - For anyone taking chem 2 i would strongly advise going over chem 5 energetic stuff - it would not be a suprise if they throw in something with entropy linked with chem 2 extraction metals

    Yeah so did I, at least 15-17 it's very worrying though as that's by far the easiest paper

    Totally agree with you but you have to say it was a bit tricky with the 4 marks on abundances which stumped me - seems like a lot of people did make exam condition silly mistakes tho
