    kc question:

    i found the difference between 0.8 and 0.6 (3/4 of it) an then dived it by 2 because it was 2NO and then applied this to the other compounds to find the eq amounts...was this wrong?
    Yes: 75% of the compound reacted. So it was the difference between 0.8 and 0.2, not 0.6.

    Thank you so much! Seeing some of these again has made me a feel a bit better that i got some right! Everyone on here has been discussing the hard ones and i've just been thinking i got everything wrong! :P

    Would you mind saying what the marks available for questions 2c, 4e, 5a,b,d, 6a are? I can't see them on the pages :P Thankyou

    See Jan 2011 F325 P11 Q3 part e. Regarding Ammonium Thioglycolate and hair.
    This was a 2 mark question, and the examiner's report states that almost no candidates were able to answer it correctly.

    (Original post by Vitupero)
    Same Paper Qu 7 Regarding Dissolved Oxygen Concentration in rivers.
    This was similar to the last question on the F325 June 2011 paper, except it was only worth FOUR marks, and didn't require the candidate to construct three ionic equations before even beginning the calculation.

    Sorry mate, but I don't think that these are very good comparisons. Not that that's through any fault of yours, it's just that there are no questions to compare today's paper with! This paper was difficult from start to finish. I don't see how they will be able to distinguish the stronger candidates from the weaker ones with this exam, really I don't.

    Thanks for actually bothering. I by all means agree that simply testing how well the students can regurgitate on the notes or the book is not representative of A2 level, however all the questions you listed were successfully done by me under exam conditions in the time allocated. And please do not assume that I did not look at past papers. I literally did every single exam question that existsted since OCR Chem Salter specification began. That is about 200 questions. The questions in the todays paper were not as straightforward as those. Long, ambiguous and time consuming to say the least.
    I wasn't assuming that you didn't do past papers it was more due to the past papers I had done I was expecting an exam where it stretched and challenged me in almost every question and why people seem to think the differently. In my preparation for the exam I did several questions from past Chem Olympiad papers, including participation in this years Chem Olympiad and many papers and questions that my teachers very kindly put together from the previous spec and other exam boards. From that I was expecting a paper with some irrelevant things and that I would quickly have to find the information needed. After the January papers (and to some extend last years Physics papers) I was expecting not to finish with time to spare and that I would need to read any information they gave very quickly.

    I'm not complaining about difficulty, I'm complaining about the time frame. I would have been able to work through that paper and complete all of it had I had maybe 2 hours and 15 minutes. As things stand, you have to work extremely quick just to answer all the questions, no time for checking, and no time to actually think about things.

    What is more likely to be a useful application of chemistry, thinking about things to find the right answer through logic and actually applying past knowledge? Or skimming the question, and then copying out the mark scheme from a similar question on a past paper because you have no time to do anything else?
    That is the problem. I think that point was raised at a teachers conference earlier in the year after the January exams, just how rushed it was. OCR said that they were aware, but it was too late to change that for us this year, but they hope to sort it for next year. According to my teacher. I personally had more time left at the end than past chem papers. I had about 25 mins to go back and check (and to do the buffer question).
