    hello beautiful people ...
    i just wanted to ask who over here is going to give cie AS paper 1 9701(chemistry) anytime soon ??
    cuz ligit im damn scared for paper 1 my paper 2 was messed up already and i dont want to loose marks in paper 1...
    and also do the examiners give the grade based on the total marks in paper 1 ,2, and 3 or they give according to the letters like for example AAB would add up to be A ....?
    hope u understand what im trying to ask:/
    thank uuu

    I'm quoting everyone because, whoever replies :-P

    I did paper 33, and, for the test for -OH, like an IDIOT, I wrote the sodium metal test. I did think of potassium dichromate, which everyone wrote, but then I thought that it doesn't work with tertiary alcohols and then how would you identify tertiary alcohols.

    And then I wrote the sodium test, because I'm obviously the brightest person around. Idiot.

    Also, PLEASE, does anyone have tips for AS paper 1?? Please, chemistry, I just cannot manage. I never get above 25, and I'm pretty sure I messed up my other papers.
    I did chem too. And ofor paper 3 i used sodium to test Na too but my friend did chromate.

    Im so super scared for AS paper 1 bcuz i did Alevel chem as a whole and papee 4 was so bad. And idk about paper 2 and 1. At this point overall B would be satisfing too 😭

    I feel you. I checked chemguide, and they said it's possibly a test, but, it's not the most ideal one.


    Ohh, if the paper was bad, I'm sure the grade threshold will be low.

    I'm TERRIFIED for chem paper 1. TERRIFIED.

    Ohh, simple, the part where you're supposed to invert the thing, to prevent air bubbles, always use a paper towel. Eventhough they mention it in the paper, a lot of people try using their hands. Preferably, take a handkerchief with you, because, tissue usually disintegrates underwater, so, taking out the whole tissue might be a struggle, because it'll rip apart.

    That's it really, it's a very mechanical experiment and, just follow the instructions to the T and you'll be fine!

    Also, I have MCQs coming up, and, do YOU have any tips for that?

    Probably one. Don't worry, they judge based on the teacher, so, my teacher's volume won't affect you marks.

    hey i wanted to know if they really give questions from the papers in the 90's. cause that would be awesome. in that case, could you give me the link to the site which has papers from that long ago? TIA!



    yep im 100% sure they pick up like about a few questions from there and paste it into our paper but the thing is i dunno where u get these papers on the internet cuz our teacher gave us like a hard copy and that to classfied but i remember looking it up on the internet to find the marking scheme but i cudnt even find any question paper (let alone marking scheme) but then after so long i found a website but it has only question paper no marking scheme and unfortunately i dont remember the name of the website "sorry"
    i think u can like look it up im sure its there ..somewhere .....

    I think PCl3 is better. Na is not the best test, even though it is applicable
