    what did everyone put for the volume of hydrogren chloride gas produced ( 1 mark question )? I put 48 litres seing as the Mr of a gas occupies 24 litres and there were 2 molecules
    I put that as well but I don't know if it is right. I just tried to use the information they gave me in the question but I don't know if I used it correctly.

    does anyone know the grade boundaries for the module tests for our exams?
    I got 232 out of 300.
    is that good enough for an A?
    also does anyone know if they use your module grade (eg. A,B) or your mark (like 200 out 300) to get your final grade for science?
    thankyou

    i'm not really proud of that! just answering someones question
    there much more difficult questions than that
    Yeah thats what I got, just read a few people put 5 m/s2, just checking. I wouldn't say that the exam was easy but it wasnt really hard either, just a medium paper that I'd personally expected after what could only be described as a "piece of cake" first paper.

    I wrote the same as you in all that (cept the magnet one), and for the sea water thing, i put C02 reacted with sea water to produce insoluble calcium carbonates which are deposited as sediments and soluble calcium and magnesium...slightly different...think theyll accept?
    They should do...cos just checked my notes and the hydrogen carbonates are soluable! Damn! Though to be honest I doubt that they'll mark me down/you up for whether they're soluable or not, I don't think the exam boards are as picky as that!

    For the Accelartion is 5 m/s2 cos it increased by 10m/s over 2 seconds.....at least I hope it did!

    For each module, 33/36 was an a*, 28 I think was an A, but not sure how they turn the actual marks into the number out of 50. If it's on dire4ct percentages then you're just under thre A boundary by a farction of a percent, assuming an A is 28/36

    Yeh I put 10m/s too. I did really badly in my modules because I wasnt in school in year 10 . I think I got a D overall. I'm hoping that I can pull my marks up to atleast a C but hopefully a B. I was only a few marks of a B in the mocks so I should be ok :/

    I actually found that exam ok. Did you find the 1st or 2nd exam better?

    I thought the 1st one was better.

    I thought the 2nd one was ok until I checked the answers in textbooks and came on here etc.

    I reckon I only got half marks. Shocking.

    i put for the solar power question exactly the same about the calculators and watches. but the i put something about if one is in a remote place and only needs little or lot electrical energy such as in outerspace or a satellite solar power would be ideal.

    For the last question, I said that solar panels should be put on spacecraft because it's more viable than a shitload of fuel...is that completely off the point or not? LOL.

    What do we all think we got in this exam?

    I think I only managed half marks thus throwing the grade I wanted down the drain

    I don't know about marking, difficult to say especially as there were a lot of 5/6 mark questions, you have to be really specific to get the marks.

    An A* in any subject is seen as really good (at least I would assume so).

    Oh good
    i was worried that they would carry the B grade over to decide my final grade but if it is the mark, thats fine.
    just hope I've done well enough on the tests to get an A though now!

    Well, you never know, when your coursework is externally moderated, it may go up. I hope you get that A grade
