LOL I was so embarrassed to write that I was doing a Chemistry degree next year on my paper. I thought I was well prepared, but that paper was something else. 10 times harder than any past paper. I guess they want schools to start olympiad training to get more golds at the IChO

100% on the same wavelength as you pal - that was horrific! We did it in our school last Wednesday - so much worse than all of the past papers I did. No amount of preparation could have prepared me for that!

Put it this way, I've done so badly that when we get it marked next week they'll decide I don't even deserve a participation certificate :L

From the responses so far, the grade boundaries are going to be VERY low. Especially considering the fact that this is TSR.

TSR aren't actually the smartest students. Private school students certainly are (and they don't really use TSR). I'm afraid a lot of independent schools do a lot of olympiad training so the grade boundaries might not be too low, unfortunately.

However I'm hoping a lot of normal schools entered their whole school lol to offset the private schools

Yup. I honestly thought I could get a gold - I got about 75% in past papers but probably didn't even make 15% in this one.

Eh, Q2 was absolutely horrendous and I didn't even attempt Q3. Q4 was my favourite, enzyme kinetics/alcohol metabolism etc. (as my username may suggest I'm more into the biological side than the physical side. )

I have my olympiad tomorrow so maybe don't talk about it that much haha! :P

I have generally done dreadful in the past papers and it sounds like it was really hard this year so I wish I wasn't even doing it tomorrow. It's going to be 2 hours of embarrassment and torture for me
