    how many marks was this worth i did not see it . what question was it worth + how many marks was the upside down born cycle worth
    Both questions were worth 2 marks each. The KOH dissociation question was the last one in the question about Ni-Cd cells.

    but 3 people in my school achieved an A* in F324? that can't be right? lol
    sometimes the school will not claim the result such as if you were to retake it, it is less paperwork for the school. thats why most are done in june

    Ok so my tutor says the comment on magic tang mark was saying that low pH=sour or something to that effect, the mark is NOT for saying it will corrode the mouth. Also this paper was written 18 months ago and shall likely have a similar grade boundary to janurary as a result, because it was written to the same standard. Thats just a kind of non subjective thing to throw into ppl who are guessing the grade boundaries.

    You cannot comment on grade boundaries as they depend on how will everyone does in the paper and this paper was much harder than january 2011.

    To be honest Rosi, I don't particularly want to speculate on the answers because I could be entirely wrong, the reason I said the last one because it seemed to corroborate with a lot of my friends.

    But yeah I'm glad, you know I said to myself if anyone gets an extra mark through my help than it will have been worthwhile, so thanks for telling me that, but I'm sure you would have had it on your own

    I think I would like to do F324 just for fun, no revision, see what I get, but then I'd much rather finish my exams next WEDNESDAY!
    Haha aww

    You want to do it for fun? Seriously, sit my exam for me! Heehe which is your last exam? How did you do in F324 if you don't mind me asking? I remember asking you a 100 questions for that exam too! You really must enjoy chemistry and good at it.. doing it at uni :eek: Good luck with that!

    Anyone else sick and tired of people complaining or saying they're gonna complain about an exam?? It's almost as if they didn't expect an exam, that needs less than 60% of the marks to be an A, to be difficult. Nonsensical complaining reduces the impact of the students voice, so they become irrelevant or unimportant to the exam boards, so when real issues erises with a paper, the complaints of those students affected might get ignored.

    Someone else said about how it won't be 25 degrees in the mouth, and so it'll dissociate more, which I think is more likely.

    It is true that ph varies with temperature but not by a very large amount, and so i doubt that it matters, ill ask my tutor

    has anyone got the ofqual and OCR email addresses?

    I've only just finished my exams, so i've only just got the time to complain
    I emailed both, but OCR said I need to discuss it with the school, because they don't handle student feedback.

    OFQUAL said:
    Dear *******************
