    i believe you could have put fractional distillation aswell... the question about separating the two molecules
    That's what I put! When I saw that chromatography was an option, I was like "well there goes another mark" I wasn't sure at all

    If you bullet pointed answers in section B will you get the mark even though its meant to be in a continuous process. I wrote them in proper secntences i just sepearated out seperate things like 'Silicon is macromolecular'

    Yeah you will get all the marks. I've asked teachers about this. Unless the question says "The quality of your written communication bla bla". Then writing bullet points is completely fine. That's how I do it to save time

    Doubt it, in other mark schemes it only allows frcational distillation or chromotography

    For the mass spec question i wrote that all 3 peaks would be there and i explained would that give me a mark?
    Legit i made so many errors

    Feel like it's gonna be about 54 for an A or less, seems like a tough paper considering what people got. Tbh I think they made it tougher because they knew no first year students were taking it. which is annoying because grade boundaries might be normal ish as there's a higher ratio of people better at chemistry

    For the 2 equation questions both worth two marks, they gave more space, do you think working is required to access both marks, or is it one mark for each side of the equations or what do you guys think because I just but the balanced equation with no working.

    for mass spec similarities, did anyone write same molecular ion peak due to same Ar of sample?
    ya but don't know if its right

    I said peaks would be the same height as they have the same abundance?

    You get one mark for balancing and one for figuring out the other product made I think

    Reall? I thought a lot of people messed up on the calculations. And especially that 6 marker for bond shapes and angles

    I think it was easier mainly because of how much you know now after chem4 and 5. I mean it was better than that weird nitrogen question last year

    I don't think the grade bounderies will be higher due 'to a higher ratio of people who are better at chemistry' because our years lot of A/A* students wouldn't have resat, only very few with low/mid A's would have as a strategic resit ... So this year there's fewer people who are better at Chem
    Plus a lot of people who's got D's and lower who will find it really hard to push up their grade significantly esp with pressure of a2 because the only thing that overlaps in Chem 1 is periodicity, so in that sense it will be lower
