    Just curious if anybody is retaking the paper from last year. I dropped chem at AS, but i'm retaking. Silly decision, I know.

    What do you guys think will come up on the paper? What do you find the most difficult? xxx
    I'm doing exactly what your doing. ><

    I thought it was okay, however, I'm not sure about how well I did, there was loads of little questions I found hard.

    Mechanism one? I think you could choose either electrophilic addition or nucleophilic subsitition. Was it out of 6 marks? Or am i referring to another quest?

    i think the one between methanol and hydrogen bromide was nucleophilic subsitiution, i put eltectrphic at first but methanol doesn have any double carbon bonds so hbr isnt polarised but i dont know lol

    Erm no it wasn't 6 marks. The 6 mark question was the one on the greenhouse effect, right?

    But isn't Nucleophilic Substitution when the nucleophile has a lone pair of electrons? HBr doesn't have a lone pair of electrons? I'm so confused.

    It was nucleophilic substitution as the bromine has 3 pairs of lone electrons...
