    I've forgotten almost all of this exam. It's so annoying I got maths tomorrow too. I'm good with everything except the organics and the Spectroscopy. Anyone know any good way to revise these? I spent the whole last week revising for my physics I just sorta pushed this aside

    use an organic scheme of reactions (like in the text book) copy it out and learn it by rote at a minimum. for example learn how alcohols go to aldehydes, by which mechanism and which reactants/reagents. how do you obtain aldehyde as opposed to carboxylic acid etc. there are a lot of them, but it will help.

    I expect NMR because it was really crappy Infra Red in January. It'll probably ask what all the past papers with NMR have, they'll give you a formula and some NMR data with the splitting patters on it, then you have to say which tells you what group it is and then draw the whole thang

    so because i can't find another thread on it............how did evry1 feel they did? i thought it was much better than january, shocked by the amount of calculations......some of the isomer Q's were hard. Section B went really well i think *crosses fingers* so how about you guys?

    Think I've done pretty well. Screwed up with the primary amine though, and I think I might have got the names wrong in the last part of question 7.

    I MISSED OUT question 7!!!! OMG I'm bricking it now. I remember thinking oh I'll come back to this later because there was an easy 9 marks for just those tests and observations. Then I just went back and tried to do all the questions I hadn't done and completely lost track of time. How many marks was it worth??? SHould still get a B.

    That buffer question was so confuzing! they gave way too much data you ddnt know what to use :s why cant they just make it simple.

    The isomers were straight forward so was section B dont think i did so well though as question 1 just threw me off

    I'm not sure how it went really, calcs were ok - the buffer q was a tad confusing, think section B was ok, the amide question took a lot of brainpower! ahhh i just hate not knowing how I did!

    TheBrahmaBull - I think question 7 was about 10-15 marks. Say it was 15, and you got the whole rest of the paper right - that would have been 83%
    fingers crossed!

    pH of the buffer - 4.32. Hope it was right. I cut my losses with the amide questions and skipped onto section B which was nice and easy, 9 marks for those reagents and observations was far too good

    I thought the buffer became more basic instead of more acidic
