    I reckon our long questions will be long calculations, designing a practical and improving another one

    We've not done much of the practicals in my college so I'm surely going to fail Could anyone summarise what they're about? Thank you!

    The Specimen papers, remember, haven't been through any moderation and haven't even been sat officially as a paper. The mark scheme is also very strict (there would be a lot more 'allow' points in the actual exam). Our teachers said it isn't possible for it to be any harder, in other words they're the 'worst case scenario' papers.

    We did the teachers only set as mocks bc the others got leaked (they told us what paper it was). Our teacher struggled with it, so if the real paper is anything like the specimens, rip guys

    Do you know what practicals could come up on the inorganic paper or organic paper? Or is it possible they could all be spread over the two papers? :s

    If you are taking A2 exams as well as retaking then you will probably have a paper from your specification

    I think they'll be a lot lower... Yeah as the second set of specimen papers are a ***** paper 1 I think could be really hard. Then paper 2 I find easy. I assume depending on difficultly... 70-75% A then take 10% off for grades lower. I'm doing biology too and that's hard af... So I'm hoping all grade boundaries are really low. As it's the first year they've done it
    I find biology easy, teach me chem ill teach bio

    Both specimen papers for AQA AS chem are on my website www.scienceskool.co.uk

    Exam section - There's also model answers for the second sets.

    As for what is going to be on the exam no one has any idea. Best of luck in your exams

    well paper 1 is inorganic, so you'll be fine for that. Shapes of molecules it's just learning the angle and name
