Okay, so is anyone even taking this exam? Is there already a thread for this? Why is a retaker creating this thread?

I'm retaking both. I got two D's because didn't actually pay attention in class. That's my first tip.
Lately I've been doing exam papers and getting A's so that must mean I'm doing something right.

You might no be tested on all of storylines but it is important you understand it all. They do ask questions on them.
By now, you should know the content for both papers or be finishing your revision for them.

Keep practicing exam papers now and if you struggle with calculation questions, then keep practicing them. Oh it's also a good idea to do legacy exam papers - The ones that have been removed because the specification has changed. But it hasn't changed entirely so you should still do some of the questions.
Make sure you mark yourself harshly.
You should know by now that OCR B are really specific with their mark-schemes so memorise the big 6 marker questions.

For F332, it's more organic. Make sure you know the mechanisms and have you guys conjured up some questions that may come up in the exam. It's important you go over all these.

I've attached some exam questions with specific answers that i think you need to include to get the marks

Both exams are very mark-scheme specific, which is annoying.

Got a feeling stuff on group 2 will come up. Maybe something on the patterns of them (e.g solubility of group 2s, rate of thermal decompositon)

If your doing chemistry at uni then its good for you. Otherwise I do feel sorry for you. Especially since you have the horrific a2 coursework to look forward to
