    What were the reagents and conditions in the organic synthesis question?
    For the conversion of the haloalkane to the nitrile I put KCN dissolved in ethanol.
    And for the conversion of the nitrile to the amine I put hydrogen with a nickel catalyst.
    Thinks this was the last part of that question 😁

    Step 3 was KCN reflux in ethanol
    LiAl4 in dry ether
    Do you think Ni/H+ in ether will be right as well for step 4?

    this threw me as well
    I'm up for complaining, I know that AQA are doing some weird stuff this year because the resort biology paper i did had new spec stuff in it which we had never heard about before, I'm really disappointed!!

    That was horrendous. Did anyone else find that the questions were so awkward?

    And there was nothing on equilibria, buffers or not many mechanisms either.

    I'm so annoyed.
    Those were the topics I revised loads as well because they were worth loads of marks on previous past paper.

    What did people put for the test between the haloalkane and the acyl chloride?

    what did people say for the reactant and conditions of the first part of Q8 to form the alcohol and salt and how to obtain the salt?
    i put conc NaOH then put reflux (literally made this up because had no clue)
    then i put chromatography, idk why this question stumped me so much

    that sucks mann, i didn't think it was that hard compared to previous years, personally i did quite well(aiming for a*, gotta do well in chem 5 too for that) i think in general there will be fairly high boundries, 2-3 up from last year.
    I'm glad that you did well but it definitely was a hard paper compared to previous years, many people found it hard so the boundaries will be low

    That wasn't too bad, just a bit unlike past papers and I was REALLY pushed for time. I finished as she said 'pens down'.

    Did anyone else get the rate expression as exactly the same in the question?

    Also, what was the reason for lidocaine hydrochloride? I said to prevent the N acting as a base by protonating it and so reduces side effects. I spent about 5 minutes looking for a chiral carbon in that compound to talk about enantiomers, but I couldn't see one!
    I put that Lidocaine is not very soluble (0.4-5mg per ml) whilst the hydrochloride salt is, making it useful for a topical anaesthetic...not sure if I'm right as thats a lot of background knowledge

    Did anyone get 1st and 2nd order for the rate equation question. The numbers were so awkward.
