    For Q3, reactivity series, I wrote the answer you have but because I was rushing I also accidentally said 'the more reactive it is, the easier it is' instead of less reactive. Do I lose marks for the right answer for writing the end part?
    Yep 0 marks I'm afraid

    Unfortunately, i made some silly mistakes when looking back at this. I have got about 47/48 marks when calculating this so hopefully i get a secure A at least. Btw does anybody know how many marks roughly you would have to get in past papers to get 100UMS points?

    With the question that asked about making changes to the apparatus, could saying use a better thermometer with a better resolution for more accurate results, be acceptable?

    I got roughly about 40 marks hoping for an A. The paper was easy but was it necessarily easier than last year's exam? I hope the grade boundaries stay the same or decrease.

    im so lucky that all my isa grades are A or above, i guess i will need to get A*s all the 1's and 2's and a high a for the 3's in order to get A* for all 3 of em
    I got a 100 ums in my chem isa. Thank god cause I always make silly mistakes in exams. According to this mark scheme I've got about 40 marks hope it's an A or worst comes to worst a B. If I get an A* in C2 and an A* in C3 (the grade boundaries for this exam is usually low- 40 for an A* last year) will my grade be an A or A* if i get a B in the C1 exam?

    That would definitely be one mark at least.

    I wonder If Increasing size of flame for surface area counts for anything. I mean... If you think about it, it does make sense to have a bigger flame for the purposes stated right? RIGHT?

    Around 48. Do you know what grades are required to get an A* overall if you have a high A in the ISA, and an A in chem1?

    I'm guessing two high solid A*s in your 2's and 3's. The grade boundaries for c3 are usually low so if you get a solid A* in that and a good A* in C2 which has decent grade boundaries you could get an A*. Honestly it all depends on the UMS points; if you do well in your unit2s and unit3s then you can get that A*. Good luck xD.

    I was looking at the UMS page on the AQA yesterday and got all sciences to get 100 UMS you need to get 59 or 60 marks. 58 would be 99 and all that jazz. If you check their website they will have a table with the UMS per marks you get.
    Good luck for the remaining exams.

    Yep! I'm on the same boat as you. Well kinda. I think I got a B, so now I need to get two A*s for an overall grade of an A* or two As/ one A and one A* to get an overall grade of an A. Calculated everything last night. I was so upset as my C1 didn't go so well.

    Good luck!

    was anyone confident on the distillation of ethanol and water question?

    I said heat them both to evaporate them, then cool to 100C so the water condenses and can be tapped off. Then cool to 78C so the ethanol condenses.

    Feedback would be appreciated :-)
