    Oh no, I put straight instead of linear for the shape as I couldn't think what it would be D: looks like another mark dropped, was a good paper in all fairness though, that pre-release material was so much easier than I thought it'd be!

    **** are the grade boundaries based on everyone who took the paper regardless of whether they've done as or a2 chem? surely that would be unfair to the as students as they are probably going to do worse than the a2s?

    I don't think it can be hydrogen bonding as there are only hydrogen bond donors, I could be wrong though :confused:

    That's what I did. They said to throw in only one equation and I gave like 2/3, is this wrong?
    I did the same as you, i assumed it meant atleast one. Im sure they wont mark you down if, and only if all the chemistry is correct. I assume on the markscheme it will have something like CON mark for incorrect chemistry of additional equations. I doubt they can take away marks if the chemistry is correct, im sure they will just ignore it.

    However ever, i linked the two equations together so im not sure if this is allowed

    Oh wow good luck! I'll be doing that next year haha
    Exactly the mark scheme is ridiculous at times >.<
    Thank you! And trust me, it makes you want to memorise the mark scheme instead of the actual content

    All the best for your results

    Yea, I agree. It also depends on how smart the cohort is. If they are smart boundaries go up regardless on how easy/hard the paper is (like in June 2012 )

    There was a question like that on a past paper with the answer Anhydrous Sodium Sulfate as a drying agent. So I put that. Awesome. Also what did people get for the other use of CFC one? Gen they said besides refrigerant, I just went F**K but literally at the last second I though of aerosol sprays and threw it down. There was some subconscious logic behind it because Wikipedia implies that I'm right..

    Kind of what I end up doing at the end, I put anhydrous sodium sulphate, do I know why? nope. It's just always right :lol:

    Yeah but it said intermolecular bonds which means between molecules, I was thinking that at first but pretty sure that's what intermolecular means.

    I thought it was the 'propellants in aerosols' and not just the 'aerosols' themselves. I'm not sure if it matters though...
