    How did everyone find it?

    Personally i thought this exam was very difficult, far harder than the practice papers I've done before. What did everyone get for the question involving how many tonnes were produced in that Haber process question?

    I got 607 tonnes, I kinda guessed though, I found the rest pretty good, what did you put for the diagram about measuring the oxygen in the air?

    That was hard!

    I did reasonably well throughout the paper, but then the question on % of oxygen in air! I just guessed some apparatus by burning magnesium in a vile, but the actual answer involves passing air over copper while heating it.

    I must say that is the hardest in the last 4 years practice papers by far!

    BTW I got 606 tonnes on the Ammonia question and 0.55 on the one about the headache tablet.

    damn got that wrong, i got 0.4, was the reason the c02 sped up the reaction was becuase it caused the particles to move faster and therefore collide more often?

    REMEMBER everyone if most of us found it hard..(which we do) then everyone else in the whole UK must of found it hard...therefore OCR will reduce the grade boundaries and it will be easier to get a higher grade

    I found it quite easy overall, but having said that I'm hoping for low grade boundaries regardless - I want to be sure of an A*!

    I also found it got easier as it went on, strangely..

    edit: I got 0.55g of CO2 and 606(.134..) tonnes on the haber process question.

    A personal guess.. I'd say it'd be about 75% A*, 65% A, 55% B.

    But I'm probably miles off!

    i swear we didnt even cover that in class well apart from the graphite bit, i remember glancing over that bit in the cgp book not that that helped:mad:
    the whole question was worth like 10 freakin marks as well:mad:

    Last year it was 70% to get an A* and highly doubt that it will be higher than that this year, this paper was harder than last year's but I think I very well indeed.

    I got 0.55 grams for the first question and then 607.14 for the Ammonia Question (mine was triple science, not sure if all the questions were the same)
