    What do you think the grade boundaries will be A*-C for Biology and Chemistry this year (2016)?I think..

    Biology:
    A* = 45
    A = 35
    B = 28
    C = 18

    Chemistry:
    A* = 51
    A = 42
    B = 31
    C = 21

    If anyone wants to help filling it out o can remember specific questions, post here
    In the first question in the last section, the atom was neon.
    (1) Neon has 10 electrons, not 9 (2) The first shell can only hold 2 electrons (3) The outer shell can only hold 8

    or something along those lines.

    Hey guys for the question about recording the temperature more accurately, could you have said you can use polystyrene cup instead of the glass beaker because less heat can escape, making it more accurate?

    Question 5b= add hydrogen, nickel catalyst, 60 degress, harderened because high temperature, solid at room temperature.

    would this be 5 marks
    you would have to give an example so it would be 4 marks

    This is painful to read... I felt so good when I just finished the exam - thinking I'd get B-A... but some reading errors that slipped by and gaps of knowledge might just get me a B at most.

    Pray to God that there are anmolous marks and that I would get something higher than a C. Asian parents don't find C's acceptable, so I would feel too ashamed for myself, even after more than 12 hours C1 revision were gone the gutter...

    I reckon i've got 54-55 with harsh marking. By the way 20.3 is a wrong answer! You are meant to place it in 2 decimal figures (from the graph) for 2 marks. So in reality the answer is 20.30 not 20.3. How do I know this? 1) It was a 2 marker. 2) Our teacher is an AQA part time examiner and that is what he told us.

    Sorry to post this again, but did anybody else put 'steam' and 'high temperatures' for the cracking question? I thought this would be acceptable because it's the other method of cracking?

    Ah, that would have been a good answer. I was just checking someone else thought it too because many people seem to have focused on the catalyst! Thank you

    yeah but neon has 10 it said it was in the same row as lithium
    (Original post by TheDragonGuy)
    It was just the nucleus, because it said about part 'Z', and that's all it wanted, not the whole atom. The way you have written the answer doesn't make it very clear though, it should be something like this

    Protons (+1)
    Neutrons (0)
    I did Protons=5 Electrons=5 and Neutron=6

    For the question about black on the bottom of the beaker or something I guessed and put Carbon Monoxide, does anyone know what the actual answer was?

    For the ethene and steam advantage, could you produce it produces pure ethanol where as fermentation doesn't which means less is required? Also can you say put a lid on the beaker? Finally, could I get away with saying l saturated oil rather than saturated fat for the final question?
