Argh! Did anyone do these papers today. I think Unit 1 might have been ok but I have completely messed up the rest. Too hard!

Oh, well I find both units were okay and. I just tried my best.

Thank god the Energy level wasn't on which was a huge relief.

Don't worry about it too much if you have the chance to do it again in January.

All the best wishes.

I did this paper last year thinking the first one was easy - it is but the boundries must be incredibly high because everyone thinks its easy. So I did worse than I thought on the first paper and bettwe on the second than I thought.

Hmm, I wonder if anyone still remembers how they did and what questions were on the paper. Anyway.

I found Chem 1 managable but it did demand a lot of recall. I was surprised that they didn't put any questions relating to halogens - disproportionation, reactions and reducing power.

Chem 2 was all right, apart from the first question about the extraction of aluminium - I totally forgot what the impurities are (iron oxide and sulphur dioxide) and then the following part to it explaining why hot sodium hydroxide was added. I got a bit of credit for that, hopefully, as I wrote about the lower reactivity of the impurities and conversion to sodium aluminate (though specifically should have mentioned the large atomic structure and basic properties of the impurities whereas aluminium oxide is amphoteric).

Chem 3 was excellent I think, it was easy. I still remember the solids from the very first question - I wrote A containing sulphite ions, B containing carbonate ions and C as a metallic element. I wasn't sure about the improvements question however (the copper sulphate and iron powder one), but I said to use a weighing bottle for further accuracy.
