    I thought the paper was really ok! I felt like I knew the answer to every question, i just maybe doubted whether I was achieving all of the marks because of the way I was expressing my anwers...

    I thought it was okayish except from the thermodynamic cycle,mean bond hr mass spec. With the nucleophillic substitution there was a one marker at the end. What was the answer for that?

    Are you serious? that was the easiest piece of crap ever being it's Unit 2. Much much easier than past papers. I thought they took some questions out of the GCSE's. Confident 90%+.

    But alot of people are going to get high marks, so grade boundaries is going to be high

    Compared to the chem2 paper in June, this one feels so much easier. the only topic i didnt revise enough was halogens + halides, but luckily there wasnt too much about them i even breathed a sigh of relief getting to the last question and finding 5 marks just for electrophilic addition the easiest end to an exam i think i've ever had

    I know the last page was so much better than last years exam I was going to leave it out because when it showed cl I thought ohhh no this is similar to last years but Im glad I had shot at it

    yep i'm quite glad that they ended with something relatively simple. and im quite happy the little bit about sodium halides was multiple choice too. last year i scraped a C in this, but i think i've managed to drag myself up to a high B/low A. its a shame they pretty much just skipped over maxwell-boltzmann curves though they're usually worth a few easy marks too

    Haha I didn't want to be so blunt, but yer this is pretty much exactly how I felt! 10x easier than the June paper which i went into just as unprepared for! Lets hope the marks aren't massively scaled down, and that the same person wrote Wednesdays Chem4 exam!

    well that is great news! What did you write for the reagent and then u had to say ur observation for each compound? I screwed up on the cl2 + h20 reaction I wrote hcl and hclo aah

    I hope that will be the case! But I mean there were some questions where I just guessed ! had no idea what they were on about!
    For example what is SO2 used for?
    Why is the catalyst hot?
    and quite few more :rolleyes: :eek: :confused:

    I wish that was true! I'm prepared for Unit 4 but chapter 11 i'm still rusty..the triplets and doublets sort of got me spinning...I'm going to revise though and it's my last exam(done 6 already what more do you want), so after that relax and chill.

    So2 is collected and use to make h2so4..you know..add water. For catalyst being hot, i don't know, the only question to baffle me on the paper.

    EDIT: just incase you wrote so2 down and tried working it out. the extra oxygen came from the air.

    so2 + h2o + 1/2o2 = h2so4
