    I actually need 105 ums from this paper for my A overall and I counted up 72/80 marks.

    66 raw marks is around 105 ums if you use the ums converter for the recent chem2 papers. This paper was a standard paper with some challenging questions, so I highly doubt the raw marks for 105 will be as high as 72 raw marks.

    Even so, I did well on the Unit 5 paper, so regardless of the outcome on this paper, I'm pretty damn pleased with everything to do with chem.

    hey all,
    I was resitting this paper.
    I had 81/120 before this resit, and now I got 82/120

    Overall I'm 1 UMS mark off a B grade. I was so pissed off with this paper, I thought it was ridiculously hard.
    Gonna get it remarked so I can hopefully get that B

    Yeah. In this Unit I got a U in the mock and a B in the exam, after a weeks revision. I did a lot per day though. Like 4-6 hours. Well done.

    That is sick man, it shows that if people revise for a subject in a short amount of time they can still do good, if not better than compared to people who revise for months and just get a B/C at the end of it. Although it isn't good to do this all the time nonetheless

    Yeah, of course if you start early and well.

    I did the worst in Chemistry AS, the weakest subject by our school.

    But 3 As is still good.

    Yeah, I got a C in this unit too, but really unhappy with it, because it brought all my marks down, but I found the paper quite difficult anyway so I'm going to retake it next year

    Uni 4 i found really quite easy but it's quite maths and logic based. It's a lot different to the rest of the units it just kind of depends what suits you. I found it WAY easier than all the other units. It's much easier to get UMS marks on unit 4 than 5 because 5 is synoptic, so really try and get as high as you can in u4.
    If you do lots of practice with the calculation questions, you should be ok.
