    I would like to answer that, but I have already been given 10 points for saying how I felt it went.

    I believe you're allowed to discuss it now given 24 hours has elapsed.

    I thought it was great until i found out that i had to times the enthalpy change of HCl twice.. so thats like 5 or 6 marks gone already.. as the question after that depended on that final answer.

    Don't fret about it - if the question is long and later questions rely on specific calculations already made, mark schemes generally allow a TE element or 'error carried forward', where as long as you apply the figure you obtained correctly you can achieve marks for it.

    I thought a lot of it was very weird, the 3 ionisation energy questions in a row which the last 2 had the same answer, the geography question and the question on cooking! It I think it was slightly better than the January.

    I looked at the paper yesterday (I didn't sit the paper, I saw it after everyone was done) and didn't see the MCQs, do you have a copy? I may be able to help if you have the questions.

    I don't have the paper, but this MCQ was "which of these enthalpy changes is negative? A) formation of Li2O B) 1st Ionisation energy of Li C) 1st electron affinity of O D) 2nd electron affinity of O.
    I wasn't sure if the answer was C or D, and I put D in the end but I think it's wrong. Thanks!

    Nope, I think you have it correct with D.

    I can't believe it, to get an A* you need 270ums out of the 300ums for A2..that is mission impossible, your only allowed to miss 30ums ?? seriously ??

    thank God my practical went well, hopefully I will pick up on all the 60ums, but still got another 210 ums that I need to get to qualify for the A*
