Hi all,

Thought I'd make a thread for the upcoming chem exam. This is one of the last science exams for the course so the pressure is on to make it count!

PRE EXAM
would be good to post practice questions for others and useful reviison material

POST EXAM
Discuss answers but no fighting!

All the best!

Some useful resources:
MY GCSEscience
Bitesize (don't judge :P )
Youtube in general- shall have to find specific videos.

May the exam content be ever in your favour

When is this exam? I've lost my exam timetable. Any predictions for 6markers? I'm hoping this exam goes like today though although Chemistry has by far been the besr especially Chem3!

Hmmm as for predictions crude oil came last year but there is no reason why it cant come up as a sneaky 3 marker! It could be anything! I will let you all know on here if I have any other hunches

Hey! I agree quizzes are alright but I like how they try to follow the spec! They also have those funky interactive activities for Unit 1 which they didn't have for Unit 3 and half of Unit 2 so it should be more useful!

Yepp, absolutely true! When I did bio today i found that some of the questions were repeated from previous past papers - lets just hope they do the same for physics and chem!

I felt the exact same too! They heavily repeated the AQA SPEC B BIOLOGY PAPER. I was quite shocked- but pleasantly surprised

do you mean just for chemistry? I found both the c2 and c3 easy, but b2 and b3 hard although it seems that everyone failed bio so hopefully the boundaries will be low for a star. What do you think the a star boundary will be? I'm thinking same as last year at 39/60 for b3??? and maybe 43/60 for b2????

and p2 and p3 were okayish hopefully scraped a stars in both
