    Don't jump to rash conclusions yet. Everyone after both exams found them very difficult. Even on TSR, people found these tough. CH2 last year was 66% for an A, which is low, but that paper was easier than our CH1 paper , so I suspect ours could be in low 60s/ high 50s.

    BY1 in 2010 required 59% for an A, 59! I don't think we're screwed, yet.
    Ok thanks for the reassurance mate. Lets hope we all do well in August.

    I'm still gonna resit anyway. I think I lost motivation towards the end of the paper, so I left out detail and answered the questions lazily. Poor Y11s have no idea what's coming their way


    Posted from TSR Mobile[/QUOTE oh yeah ino, do you resit next summer? because I will probably have to
    Yep. No more January exams, unfortunately

    Yeah how did you do in chemistry? We may as well have selected math for an A level
    It was worse than biology by far ! Makes biology look like an A mark now How did you get on ? I dropped maths after 2 lessons so didn't expect to be sitting an exam on it !!!!

    I found the biology harder because I panicked when it started mentioning fish and all the unfamiliar stuff so I did really bad because I couldn't concentrate. The chemistry was in my opinion way better than the biology but still very difficult because there was so many 4 markers, it made it hard to finish in time

    We're the only exam board that does NMR at AS. All the resources will be for A2 Level.

    Mechanisms
    Enthalpy change practical.
    Analysis, eg IR, NMR and mass spec.
    Measuring and explaining the rate of hydrolysis.
    Green Chemistry.
    Effect of factors on rate of reaction or a method for rate of reaction practical.

    Can't really think of anything else.
