    Okay it was definitely the alcohols that we had to identify (A and B). I finished early and went through the paper to double check everything and initially I had written the aldehyde and ketone but the question definitely wanted the alcohols! Thank god i double checked!
    oh crap i wrote the corresponding aldehyde and ketone ffs

    What did everybody draw for the hydration of prop-1-ene mechanism? I used sulfuric acid instead of water, everybody's answer in my class conflicted with mine but using sulfuric acid is actually the technically correct mechanism.
    yes bro sulfuric acid, which would then go on to form the secondary alcohol. thank god i realised otherwise i would've left the mechanism that would form a primary alcohol

    phew

    Nothing unexpected ...

    Really? You expected an empa style question on how to make it a fair test?

    Last year needed 85 for an A, and I think this year's was much harder despite a lot of people on here saying otherwise. Maybe 80 for an A?

    You wouldn't be able to resit AS but you would be able to resit A2

    You can't resit this spec again, you would have to do all of the new spec from scratch. :'(
    -_- Damnit

    How does it work though, I thought the new AS don't count towards your final mark?

    Hate to break this ...

    They ignore partial charges UNLESS they are incorrect. If they are wrong, they penalise you.

    Yes it doesn't but unlike the legacy papers there's no more CHEM1 and 2, it's inorganic and organic papers (something like that) so you can't just Resit a unit anymore as the content is now divided so you'd basically have to do the whole course again

    So you did 702/3? Instead of 702/2 :'(

    I feel these silly mistakes bro, on the half equations for iodine I only included one electron so messed up the whole equation only reallsed after I left the exam

    Guys you know that half equation question and you had to form a equation from your previous two parts, does it matter one of your previous parts was wrong as long as you formed a correct equation from the two you wrote? I know it's a bit weird and only 1 mark but still wondering

    But is the spec similar to the legacy spec? It looks quite similar in terms of content

    It is similar deffo cos it's still AS equivalent so they have to test you on content similar to what everyone else is tested on but despite that some things are not included that we have studied and vice versa so I think that's why it's not available to merge legacy and new spec qualifications as it would be unfair
