    Hey, I'm doing this Chemistry one too, it's AS right?

    It's going well at the moment, got 90% in my mock with no revision so I'm just going to revise Unit 3 quite a bit (Group 2 and Group 7) and it should be fine

    How are you finding it?

    Yes there is a CGP Guide, for OCR anyway... It's not that good though tbh. Use the OCR AS endorsed textbook, its really good

    GUYS I cannot believe I will be resitting this exam next week!! This is easier than GCSE but I still got a B last year - How silly of me. I ended up getting A( 95%) in the UNIT II. I think I am mad. Mad people do mad things, as they say. LOL. I am aiming to get 100% in this one

    but UNIT 4 is coming up also! ARGHHH... I hate the analysis bit - clueless about it.

    Yeah, it was relatively easy. However, the answers you had to provide were all quite lengthy and time constraints made the exam harder than it should have been, i.e the displacement reaction halogen/halides question, whereas in past papers you simply filled out tables for example stating colour change, this time it being a 6 mark short essay question, completely ruined my time management. Otherwise the rest of the exam was easy and I should imagine the grade boundaries will be quite high for this paper.
