    Yeah same but I did like Calcium (|) hydroxide and that..I think I've done it wrong.
    Hmm...I dont think it is calcium (l) its calcium (ll) although I just put calcium :confused: hopefully theyre a bit lenient on that.

    The prerelease questions were definitely the hardest!

    What did you put for the reagant one that I have mentioned above?

    same with me lol, when I got my paper back from last year I was shock at my mistakes. This time I finished early and went back to check. My all time favorite question was the one asking about a reaction mechanism with curly arrows, I simply loved it lol
    that was a generous 6 marks i believe?

    no not advanced notice it was earlier than that cant remember the number thoo sorry

    but out of curiosity now youve mentioned it, what did you get for the advance notice equation?

    Ozone mentained because of the O radicals? O2 + O -> O3 .. I think

    And also, I put down Yes, as it showed similar trends from last 20,000 years.. However there was a decrease in Temperature by 1 degree at the end..
    :lolwut: too much detail! It was only 2 marks.
    1st mark: Yes/No
    2nd mark: One little sentence why yes/no.

    Kind of minor for the 'last question of the paper'.

    I had 2 mins to check! :cry2:
    Dont worry, I only checked the mathsy bits, never got time to check the entire paper as I finished just about 2-3 mins before time ran out. Probably because I was checking stuff while doing them. But nonetheless, that paper is MASSIVE, no way I would be able to check the whole paper in 2 mins, so I just went for the flick through.

    oh I think i might have got the ozone one right then, but I think I messed up the Uv wavelenght values.

    I can't remember what reaction and reagent you're talking about.

    Err for the advance one I really wasn't sure on this I got 3HCO- + Al3+ + H2 ----> Al(oh)3 + 3H2O

    Something along those lines.

    But the question just before was a 5 marker which was beautiful, very open ended.

    And yes, the 2 questions that I loved were the bromomethane one and the other one where they told us to do a mechanism, I just went for the easy nucleophillic substitution of OH- into chloroethane. I was literally like this-:woo:

    Wouldn't worry too much, it doesn't require the value of the UV, as long as its implied that it's dangerous or threatening.

    In the OCR book issued by the school they didn't mention UV values, but in the other OCR book they did. I chose not to bother remembering as numbers are not my friend.

    dibromomethane..is that right? umm other possible answers cud have been tribromomethan and tetrabromomethane..right?? :o:

    Yes..what did you get for the gram calculation at the end?

    I thought I had done that right then I got out of the exam and everyone had a different answer

    Why did I put bromoethane?! :facepalm: I was thinking if two CH3 radicals could react together to make ethane, then another Br free radical comes along and reacts with that. So does that not count?

    Yup that works well.

    So everyone, what do you reckon your grades are assuming the grade boundry is about 80/100 for A, 70/100 for B and so on.

    I reckon I got between mid B worse-mid A best.
