    That kinda sucked. I have little clue how to construct ionic equations, that screwed me over. Didn't really have a clue what I was doing with the buffer Q either. Probably a good ~20 marks that I haven't answered. Past that it wasn't too bad, if the boundaries are as low as they have been previously then i'm hopefully fine!

    I'm in the same boat as you. I dont think i've even got an Eand i tried so hard in revision but my mind went blank in the exam.
    I'm really upset, Im actually crying, that how pathetic I am. I held it in during the exam. But I can't take not going to uni.

    That exam should have been at least 2 hours. I didn't even have time to go back and check my answers.

    That exam was catastrophic. Totally screwed up the acid q by mixing up my pKa values so I lost 20 marks on that Q, and then couldnt do the 9 mark q, or the weird 3 markers to do with 4,4'bipepy (?) nightmare.

    Hopefully grade boundaries about 65% for an A....then I might scrape one.
