    Hey guys, was there a question in AQA C3 about the flame test of potasium/sodium? (cant remember) :O
    Was that the one with the table? I remember there was one colour that was right, and the other ones were like no colour change or something?

    I think there was a table but TBH I cant remember. I only remember putting lilac and red because I thought it was asking about the flame test.

    I put lilac and red was that correct? (sorry, I crammed both units the night before so I can't remember anything)
    Potassium is lilac, sodium is yellow/orange

    WHY DOES EVERYONE FIND AQA CHEMISTRY EASY? Chemistry made me want to kill my self, and I'm not joking, we didn't get a proper chemistry teacher until year 11! And she was a biology teacher who'd never taught C3.

    Because they made AQA chemistry easy? Idk but I have a friend who also found chemistry difficult. I didn't revise C1 properly so I didn't enjoy taking that exam😅
    Did your school not at least try to find an alternative chemistry teacher?

    Yeah that was the table. I think there was also a fill in the gap sentence underneath asking about the flame test colours for potassium and another element (maybe lithium or calcium since people mentioned red?)

    Ouch. Sounds like you had to self-study it.

    They tried and failed, the stories really long but the exam may have been easy, but for someone who had to learn the whole subject in 1 year in a subject hard to revise cause I don't enjoy it, you've got a problem, I didn't even get the graph in C3 right and it was easy apparently...

    I found C1 harder even though I revised through it properly (I think I made a silly mistake with the conditions for hydrogenation, and the 6marker)

    C2 was pretty good though..

    I tried but it was hard. My chemistry teacher in year 11 offered revision sessions in the morning and invited people from my class but didn't invite me and I got 18/60 in the C3 mocks too...

    Mind you did get 11/60 in the B3 mock and I did much better in my current exam.

    This may be a stupid question but what will we actually see on results day on that sheet of paper? The grade we got for each subject, what about coursework grades, percentages, raw or UMS marks?

    Yeah I get how you feel. For Product Design our teacher was ill half of year 10 when we needed her most. But there wasn't any suitable replacement until May/June. Even when she came back, she didn't help with the theory stuff so we had to self-teach the whole spec. With physics, our teacher wasn't very good at helping us understand the concepts so we had to self teach P3

    I got 39/40 (my chem teacher said it was 100UMS)

    I was really annoyed with my biology ISA. First my bio teacher marked it at a C, then got remarked to 48/50, then my teacher pushed it down to 44/50 before sending it off to AQA . (But it doesn't matter though cuz I know I failed biology - I didnt revise for unit 3)
