    I found extension easier except from P3. I think i found extension easier because i used the textbook to revise but for additional I only used the revision guide. I found C3 the easiest one. I got 47 out of 50 in the FASCAR and 44 out of 50 in the ASCAR
    yeah C3 was pretty straight forward... Fascar? you mean CA? i got 47 for additional and 45 for extension outa 50, what did you get in core?

    looool xD you should've just said forces of attraction mate... in the mark scheme it says that they will just accept forces of attraction but reject intra forces of attraction :P dw i donteven thinki wrote any of this....XD just hope hpe hope grade boundaries are low... what makes things worse... i want to do medicine :3 i hope 2A* 8As and a B is enough... (i was initailly hoping for 6A*s ahaha)

    I wrote the correct thing if they forgot to read the intra part xD for the same question i put that it has a high melting point because the bonds are very hard to break which is also wrong -___-
    messed up on c2 so bad!
    Im sure you will do good!

    oh damn... in my school you just need 2As in core and additonal to study all the sciences... so if you get a B in chem but an A overall, you can study any science you want
