    They've taken it out I think and it includes synoptic questions throughout the paper rather than just at the end

    there is synoptic in unit 5, if you read the specification it says it will test areas of the course, and if you've done a practice paper recently they do ask you synoptic stuff. I think it will even have synoptic written in brackets on the front cover.

    read page 39 onward, many of the topics require application of knowledge from previous units

    ok, seems to make a bit more sense now! thanks for your help, did get me worried for a sec tho! was thinking along biology lines, where each unit is totally new materal, but in chem it seems to be buildin on whats been done b4.

    good luck 2moz!

    Tiny bit about grignard reagents on the second page but yup, hardly anything really. Think its only something like 10% of the total paper though
