    Modular resits don't really count, unless you're applying to cambridge or something.. For medicine, the only type of resit they are bothered about is if you have to resit a whole year..
    oh ok.. thanks alot!

    Who is on AQA for Chemistry?

    11 chapters. 1 more day to go. :cry2:
    Im on AQA exam on thursday.

    i've got everything revised for energetics, kinetics, equilibrium, redox etc etc, just metal extraction and a tad on halides to cover
    i scraped a C in this last year as my teacher pretty much skimmed over reaction mechanisms, then half the exam paper was free radicals and nucleophiles but this year i'm better prepared! so should be getting high B/low A

    Oh hello

    I'm really not happy about this exam :cry2: i haven't even looked at Analytical Techniques :argh:
    The part of organic that confuses me is the detailed mechanisms. Say we have an alkene and an electrophile, do we draw the two dots (representing the pair of electrons) right next to the double bond, or not? My teacher seems to contradict the marking scheme.. i'm soo confused :pinch: What do you say? Do we draw them when the arrow points from the double bond to the electrophile? :confused: I seem to have lost at least half of my marks because i didn't draw the mechanisms properly :bawling: this is depressing. I want no exams. :sad:

    Analytical technique isnt too bad, just mass spectronomy and infrared spectroscopy, but they tend to give you everything you need to answer the question in the exam. For the mechanisms its really just a case of writing them out over and over til they sink in. for electrophilic addition you dont draw any lone pairs of electrons on/near the bond, your curly arrow just goes from the bond to where the electrons end. All the arrows ever show is where the electrons start, and where they end up if you need a hand with it drop me a pm much easier than cluttering the thread with big diagrams and long-winded explanations of why they are drawn a particular way

    what are the observations when you reaction lithium chloride with sulfuric acid? does anyone know?
    is it the HCl vapour?
    what about adding sodium bromide to conc. sulfuric acid?

    Good luck tomorrow! Glad it is in the afternoon :awesome: (although i do have to do the written ISA A2 paper right after this exam.. oh so lucky :rolleyes: )
    Group 2 metals is a very quick chapter. Very similar to the one in unit 1. except they add in solubilities and that's it! ( i think :ninja: pls correct me if i'm wrong)

    Though I was confident of an A I never expected full marks but I did somehow!! For unit 1 I got 118/120
    The funny thing is I expected full marks for unit 3 but only got 53/60 bringing my chem average low!!!
