    so how was chemistry everyone? Personally I reckon it was massively easier than bio... Though I messed up the enthalpy change calculation. What did you think? Paper 2 has surely got to be a lot harder?!

    Yes we do get one, but nothing else (eg: a periodic table - not that you'd need one).

    physics was okay, about as easy as chem, maybe a little harder

    Not sure about the weight - got a zero error for the ammeter

    is anybody doing double award? nobody seems to be doing it.
    i chose to do it, however a few people i've spoken to say only lower sets do double award, and i'm predicted an A/A* so im just confused.

    I think it's more interpretation of data and practical skills. I've found questions in the same style as those in the specimen on other AQA past papers and worked through those, as well as learning the practical key words. Its only 17.5% or something AO1 (recall of information) so there isn't that much you can actually 'revise'.

    Which topics came up in the first one, we can make a list? I reckon quadrats will come up they seem to love them for whatever reason, they always put stuff on digestive enzymes too, but no promises!

    Yeah, they always like to put those in analysis questions so I think it's likely to come up on paper 2. Not entirely sure though, not much to go on
