    I don't even think I've got a B. That was horrendous. Thanks AQA.

    Likewise couldn't find a structure for the last question that made sense.

    God knows what the 9 marks were for, I just wrote anything I could about the individual peaks.

    I found it a very hard paper but I still think I've done well in it!
    Answer to last question was something like H3COCH2CH2C(CH3)2OH
    Or that's what I got at least and I was pretty confident with it.
    Was unsure about the reaction with the diol - my answer was a cyclic compound?
    Also unsure about the question regarding the hydrogen chloride thing with the large molecule which sounded like cocaine?😂

    Just thinking about it I think the structure is 4-hydroxy-3,3-dimethyl butanal.

    I wrote that for the last question but it's a tertiary alcohol and it can't be oxidized with potassium dichromate :'( :'(
    My answer was a cyclic compound with the diol too! yay
    The chloride thing I wrote it's more soluble? idk

    WHAT THE **** WAS THAT AQA?!?!?! Worst. Exam. Ever. As if we don't have to learn about enough compounds, they give us a huge set of questions about one that we don't have to know. Grade boundary predictions anyone??? Was getting around 80% on the past papers, seriously think I got 15% at a push :cry::confused:

    Welp that's my Chemistry grade gone

    I'm only semi certain on the math questions and as for the mechanisms, proteins and Polymer stuff? I'd be lucky to scrape even a few marks on those sections.

    More marks lost on the Lipocain crap, PGM and electrophile.
