    Anyone sitting this paper? I'm retaking it for the 3rd time got C the last two times...hope to get an A this time round! Grade boundaries vary a lot but seem to be following the 'increase' trend... JAN 13: a=49. b=44

    I'm losing my A grades because of stupid mistakes and rushing questions and not reading questions etc...i know this because I go both previous papers back. I don't know why but I really struggle for time in F321 papers hence the reason for the rushing...any tips?

    Exam is on 23 May 2013 and its AM

    Good luck!

    Sorry about that mate! You look at the difference in electronegativity of the atoms of the compound, the larger the difference the more polar the bond. Smaller the difference, the more non-polar the bond.
    It's usually non symmetrical.

    Just think of them as opposites

    Reactivity in group 7 INCREASES
    Reactivity in group 7DECREASES
    Boiling point only needs to be discussed in group 7 so boiling point increases because vanderwaals forces etc.
    and when talking about CARBONATES in group 2, it's about STABILITY increasing
