    Hello to everybody studying A2 level Chemistry from 2013. The purpose of this thread is to allow users to share information and help each other with Chemistry work. I know a few people that are planning on getting ahead with chemistry over the summer before we officially start A2 which is why I decided to make the thread. I would like to start over the summer myself but I seriously wouldn't have enough time.

    This thread is open to all exam boards so feel free to discuss, post tips and questions.

    I achieved a grade C in chemistry at AS, but then achieved an overall grade A at the end of A2. I missed an A* by 13 ums.
    I did resit chem1 and chem 2.

    So anyone who has questions ask away. I'll be happy to give advice to anyone who needs it.

    Added, I don't really like sites like that. Not appealing to the eye so puts me off.

    Couldnt believe the Edexcel Unit 2 boundaries were so high. I thought the exam was difficult.

    Hahah I guess everyone this year is just good at chemistry because the AQA boundaries were high aswell and I thought the exam was reasonably difficult.

    IF 240 is an A at AS guessing 480 is an A for A2
