    Yes! Totally finished! Gold is a LOT easier than people are making out
    That's what I thought :lol: I think it helped that I knew two of the scientists on sight, and the other two had molecules that I could google..

    I won't lie, I didn't know any, but there were give aways in all of them that meant finding out who it was was pretty easy! Have you finished all of them now?

    Yeah. Sadly I was out being monumentally and outrageously drunk in Cambridge when the challenge was released, so I've got a pretty low ranking. Not good! Got to at least improve on last years (well, technically this years) position.

    hi! i did the paper on monday.

    it was... tough.
    Which paper is this? I thought the paper was sat in March-June every year (for AS students) and January for A2 students. (Chemistry Challenge and Chemistry Olympiad respectively).

    Completely stuck on Copper. Why is it not just citrate?! It's the Krebs cycle isn't it?

    it's more obvious than citrate... and the citrus fruits in the background indicate it well..

    Can't believe I got stuck on the Krebs cycle question because it refused the answer C_O_H_ but accepted C_H_O :facepalm:

    Other than that it was quite easy
