    I personally found this paper quite tricky. Every single question had atleast one tricky part. The rate and half cell questions really threw me off as they normally are quite easy. I wasn't sure about the chlorine question where it asked to compare in alkaline and acid conditions which was 4 marks. Also for the last part I did a lot of calculations and also managed to get 7 H20 so should get some marks there but couldn't find the salt bit
    I am really not looking forward to F324 next week

    Did anyone get NiSO4.7H2O?

    I got 7 H2O and put NiCl2 for some stupid reason, walked out the exam and said to my friend I bet it was nickel sulphate and we think that would have worked.

    After that paper so scared I won't get into uni cos I need 3As and found that exam extremely hard

    I got NiSO4.7H20, and it matched my molar mass of 280.8, so I think it was right!
    You absolute babe! I got that too! This makes me happy!

    I CAN'T BELIEVE I OVERLOOKED THE ACID BIT AND THE FACT THAT ITS A FLAMIN' SALT IN THE LAST QUESTION.

    OH GOD, THIS IS AWFUL. I HAVE NO WORDS.

    MY ENTIRE ANSWER WAS JUST RIDICULOUSLY COMPLICATED AND OBV VERY WRONG. 7 MARKS! :mad:
    don't worry. if you've done everything else fine, then you can still get your A. i found the last q weird too. you could still get a few marks from the q.

    I've decided that I am becoming a stripper/pole dancer/forever a sains checkout girl. That exam was so horrid. I'd have done better not turning up. I can do Kc and rate orders and PH buffers but that ****ing exam made it so ****ing hard.

    I can see myself not going to uni now

    I got that after about 20 minutes work. I think it was a very hard last question.

    if you missed out the salt bit, i think that'll only be worth 1-2 marks, i think the main bit was working out the moles of H20 ratio
    But that bit determines your waters of crystallisation so if you get that wrong, you get a lot wrong. I am heavily relying on ECF leniency here. Must do even better on F324.

    Thought paper was alright only on the mark question saying why cl2 was produced or something I couldn't understand what they meant by the alkali part.

    I feel very much the same - I'm going to be working at Asda forever or moving on to strip clubs (except I'm not skinny so that won't work )
