    A Twitter post I saw about it said this:

    "#F321 predictions:
    Dative cov bond
    SIlver nitrate test
    Metallic bonding
    H-bonding diagram
    Reactivity down a group
    Water of crystalisation"

    I would just ensure my understanding of this but not totally tunnel vision on it
    Yeah those haven't popped up much in recent years, especially dative covalent bond. But good luck

    Good Luck everyone, I know you'll all do wonderfully Just remember the exam board prefers giant covalent structure to macromolecular. Bith are usually allowed but better to be safe than sorry Smash it guys xxxxxxxx

    So everyone let's slay this test!
    Remember to add state symbols and read ques properly if it asks you for either formula or to name something. Make you check if you are asked to round your answer to a certain figure.

    Wasn't keen on the 5 marker (however in retrospect it was easy.. Missed 5 marks dammit) but in general I thought it was really nice.

    everyone came out of the exam here complaining they found it difficult, but i dont understand why, that 5 mark question was a bit dodgy though but other than that I thought it was a much better paper than last year

    I put three .. So the students can use bromine water tube, iodide ion tube and the organic tube

    guuuys how was it ... pretty good compared to last year. MaYBE after doin A2 that's why I find it easy. But I have to agree that, that 5 marker was dodgy. the rest was ok. Everyone got NaF for the one with the mr of 42.. I didn't get it. However if I did this paper last year I would've found it challenging. So what did everyone write about the s and p orbital thing.

    for the shape of the s orbital I put spherical and then for the p orbital I put balloon shaped but I wasnt too sure
    I also got three for the minimum number of test tubes but then i changed it to three so one could be used as a confirmatory test for the iodide compound with cyclohexane but i feel like i probably shouldnt have put that.
    What did you guys get for the total volume of gas produced?

    Q: state the relative energies of 2s² and 2p6 orbital; also state relative energies of each 2p orbital. [2]

    A: s orbital lower energy than p orbital; each p orbital has same energy level.

    HNO2. Question stated that it was not redox reaction therefore N could not have changed oxidation number meaning couldn't be HNO3
