    Multiple choice questions were quite nice imo compared to some of the ridiculous ones in the specimen paper. Just praying boundaries are standard.

    There is no UMS as this is a linear specification. You will just get a raw mark (your total over both papers) and a grade.

    They may look at your grades that you got. But considering many schools aren't even taking AS exams this year, I doubt they'll be taken into account anyways. Your predicted grades and GCSE grades will have more weighting this year.

    They are trialling new Admissions Assessments this year. They could ask for raw marks, but probably not because these are not standardised across exam boards.

    10% more than is needed is not 45 ,it's 45.45, if you use that number you get the correct answer.

    3.33 is correct. I said 90% is 0.15 moles. So 100% is 1/6 moles and then just worked it out as normal
