    The thing is I'm fairly sure you're entirely missing the point, the stretch and challenge questions were there to make you think, not to remember, that's the entire point. There were past papers and similarly styled questions in the book, so you have nothing really to complain about.
    Not complaining really, I agree that the paper was fair, covered everything...just would have liked to have practiced and actually known about the context they wanted to apply Chemistry in the exam beforehand


    I honestly don't care anymore....nothing can be done, let's wait till August ey

    I think a lot of people are missing the point about the magic tang question. The problem was the ambiguous wording which led many to believe that you had to work out the acid to use rather than simply pick one and proceed.

    + REP anyone?
    i've had nothing at all to do tonight haha.

    questions, marks, and the answers. (some of them are just my attempt at it, e.g. the decomposition of KOH, and i'm also not 100% about the marks for each question but i've made it =100 so 1 question maybe +/- 1mark than its actually worth)

    This was a hard exam, but I'm really annoyed at myself for getting caught up in it. I think I just made too many mistakes not thinking properly.
    I don't want to blame OCR but it did feel like alot of jumping through hoops (but then at the same time who wants a levels to be easy?)

    my chemistry teacher said it was the hardest exam hes seen in 20 years so all those who say it wasn't that hard, stop talking out your backside, get down from your high horse and accept it was a difficult paper. Btw i was on an A going into that exam and am resigned to the fact i know i got a D in this paper
    alot of people will be doing F324 F325 on 26th Jan and 1st Feb by the sounds of it:eek:

    my school, just got this reply from OCR

    (Original post by OCR)
    GCE Chemistry A paper F325 (Equilibria, Energetics and Elements), June 2011

    Thank you for your e-mail detailing your concerns about the above examination paper. I was
    very sorry to read of your concerns and would like to assure you that OCR continually monitors
    all aspects of the assessment in light of centre feedback and the experiences of candidates.

    In response to your concerns I would like to stress that it is the specification that determines
    what can and cannot be assessed for any qualification. The Heinemann textbook provides a
    good grounding in many of the topics that may be assessed. It does need to be noted, however,
    that no textbook will exactly repeat what will appear in the examination. A requirement of the
    Regulator for all GCE qualifications is the emphasis on the Application of Knowledge and
    Understanding (rather than pure recall) in the new specifications and thus on candidates being
    able to apply their knowledge of a topic to new, unfamiliar situations. OCR has followed all
    requirements set out by the Regulator for this assessment and we are happy that the standard of
    the papers is appropriate, fair and that it prepares candidates well for future careers.

    I would like to assure you that I have discussed your concerns with the Principal Examiner and
    that all feedback received on any examination is tabled at the Awarding Meeting where grade
    boundaries are set. If any issue is found to have affected all candidates, such as timing, grade
    boundaries will be set so as to ensure that no candidates are disadvantaged. I should highlight
    however, that all question papers are sent to an independent scrutineer who is charged with
    working them as a candidate would do and reporting on their suitability (including any possible
    timing issues). No such issues were raised for this paper or I would not have passed it for print.
    If any subsequent analysis from the June examination suggests that timing is an issue for this
    paper we will of course review all future papers.

    Thank you for your observations and for taking the time to contact us and I wish you well in your
    examinations.

    Yours sincerely,
    it came as an attachment as a PDF, so im guessing quite a few people filed complaints with OCR hence why they have pre-prepared a reply for this issue

    Ah damn it I just remembered that I worked out the molar quantities in the magic tang question but didn't actually form it into a ratio.

    Why does this paper always come back to haunt me?!??

    your in almost an identical position to me....according to Jan's grade boundaries (which are likely to be similar to June's +/- 3 marks)...100UMS is around the 55 mark
