    Don't forget this stuff is testing your abilities, not just stuff you read and repeat. If all a chemist did was stuff everyone knew how to do, there'd be no point doing it at all. There were some hard questions on this, yes, and they were a little ridiculous, and probably the difference between a grade or two - the difference between being able to repeat stuff we've all practiced in and out of class, and being able to use this stuff like a real chemist would.
    Fair point, but we are only A level students? Prospective chemists have years worth of practice at application at university surely?

    I actually feel sick. Some people on here are saying don't worry and grade boundaries will be low. Even if they are really low, I know I've still got a U and I've failed the paper. OCR are being ridiculous.

    I used a tangent. If by 1/t you mean finding the average gradient between the point at t=0 and another point, then it should be okay as long as the interval was sufficiently short.

    I have never found an exam this hard. It's the first time I have actually come out of an exam on the verge of crying/feeling sick. There was too much application required in this paper. I think there was an disproportionate amount of longer 5-10 mark harder questions compared to the straight forward 2-3 mark questions, it's no wonder people (including me) ran out of time. Yes, exams should have the element of application of knowledge, but surely only to an extent. With this new syllabus, how the hell could you do any sort of revision for improving your "logical reasoning" skills? Past exam questions did not help at all.

    Long story short: my life is over and I have to face yet more OCR tomorrow (Core 4, hurrah).
    I literally walked out and started crying FML.

    Did anybody get a KC value of 45?? I deem this one of the easier questions but still, they managed to make ever the simplest of topics within the unit tricky. I can understand you make some things hard and some easier, but literally everything in the paper required more than the average time to think about it. If you have to read so much b****x about 'sweets' and fictitious material then the time allocated should increase. It seems the time taken to read each question has significantly increased, meaning less time to solve them... Does that make sense or am I the only one who believes so??
    Yup, completely agree, 100%.
