    Biology unit 5 grade boundaries don't shift much I don't think.

    Also, there were less data response questions which although time consuming are generally considered to be pretty easy marks, no easy 5 marker core practical question either.

    Going over some of the CGP book and just strengthening some areas, whilst looking at past papers. Better late than never I suppose

    Also I'm going to be the only one in my school doing this paper. I'm a resit candidate and everyone else will be doing OCR A

    Abstract question here, How are we meant to know the colours of Ligand complexes? Is there a way to work them out? I've seen a few crop up like [Fe(OH)6] in the exam papers, and I've never even seen them in the texbook.

    Look in Page 33 of the salters a2 revision guide.

    Fe2+ + 2OH- ======> Fe(OH)2 green gelatinous solid
    Fe3+ + 3OH- ======> Fe(OH)2 orange gelatinous solid
    Cu2+ + 2OH- ======> Fe(OH)2 pale blue solid
