    It wasn't 10 bc when calculating the conc of Br2 you had to use the moles of Br- since that was not in excess... Sadly I used the excess bromate ions moles so I got 10 too T_T

    No it was a partial hydrolysis that only broke one amide bond
    Why was it partial hydrolysis? I don't remember reading that?!?! I drew 3 molecules and also I'm 90% sure the question was 3 marks

    Grade boundaries should be around 56 for an A. That's not unreasonable considering the paper Look at how many of the questions had not come up before in any way shape or form. First time I've seen cold drawing, First time I've seen 10marks worth of maths in one question (bromine number). First time recrystallisation has ever been 3 marks. First time heterogeneous catalysis has been asked. First time that we have been asked to show something is in excess.First time that I've seen a 5 mark question on rusting iron and been given 3 lines to put it on. It's an absolute disgrace of a paper and some action will have to be taken if the grade boundaries do not reflect it's difficulty. OCR if you are reading this then its not to say go and make F335 easy to make up for your questions. Make it like you do every year, so that those who work hard get what they deserve.

    Spot on. I can't agree more. Absolutely no resemblance to past papers... even the "easy" questions were harder than usual. More application of knowledge than any other paper I've done by a long way. I hope the grade boundaries will be rock bottom but I doubt they'll be that low unfortunately.

    Why is trypsin preferred over bromate (v)? I put because bromate produces bromine which is toxic and trypsin doesnt get used up so is cost effective. Probably all wrong

    Yeah I've seen everyone else got 7 too. How did you do it?
    99% sure 7 was right @alice

    The question was 3 marks so I'm pretty sure 3 molecules?! That's what I put anyway

    Is it just me that found this paper ridiculously hard? So frustrating. Anyone else not answer the calculation either?
    I couldn't do half the paper! all I wanted was a B calculations were awful :/

    I did it the other way round, did the two on the right but could easily be wrong
    Can't both options be right? As part of the marks would be for recognising that only one was broken?

    Do you mean tank 1 for Fe ions and tank 2 for Cr ions? Bc thats what i put

    BrO3- was in excess, wasn't it? So You had to use the moles of Br- to calculate the moles of Br2 (by dividing by 5 and multiplying by 3). I'm not 100% sure but that is what I did.
    Oh crap ur right :'(

    Iron was in tank 1 because it was a positive electrode

    I think this one has to do with trypsin being an enzyme. So advantages associated with enzymes as catalysts.

    it said that the trypsin only breaks that specific amide link so i dont think both would be right

    What did everyone put for the first 5 marker on enzymes and substrates?
