    Hopefully it's not like last year ( may/june for the variant 1's) . If you met the minimum number of marks to get an A in all 3 papers, overall you would end up with a high B something like 86, tho a grade A started at 95.
    That is not cool

    And as for pressures at 5000m altitude, they can curl up in a corner and DIE

    Unfortunately altitude. Com predicts it to be 56k. I think there was an option like that.

    Had the paper been of 1 hour i would have had time issues. But thank God they added those extra 15 mins so i had enough time to recheck. I'm not sure about 2 or 3 questions but other than that it was really good for me. Paper wasnt exceptionally hard or easy, somewhere in between.

    Because of planar carbonyl group.so there's an equal chance of nucleophile attacking either side..
