    Is it only me who feels that they flopped c3
    I'm really upset at the moment knowing that I definitely got a few 1 mark/2 mark questions wrong
    I feel the same I think I also messed up on bio and chem was just a struggle ffs

    It asked for the overall temperature increase, the graph started at 18 and ended at 38, then it went down.

    Since it's asking for the overall increase, it'd be the difference between the lowest and highest point, since the part where it goes down from 38 is a decrease.

    What do you think the grade boundaries are this year guys??
    what's an A and what's a B?
    For unit 2 chemistry for the past 3 years, the grade boundaries have varied from 26 to 30 for a B and from 35 to 39 for an A.

    Biology and Chemistry A* grade boundaries? A range of answers would be great because obviously some people are going to find them harder than others.

    So here is basically the breakdown of all the grade boundaries for the 2 units of biology and chemistry over the last few years, hope this helps

    CHEMISTRY GRADE BOUNDARIES
    Unit 2 =
    2012 - 20, 29, 39 (C, B, A)
    2013 - 18, 26, 35, 44 (C, B, A, A*)
    2014 - 21, 30, 39, 48 (C, B, A, A*)

    Unit 3 =
    2013 - 28, 34, 40, 44 (C - A*)
    2014 - 29, 35, 41, 47 (C - A*)


    BIOLOGY GRADE BOUNDARIES
    Unit 2 =
    2012 - 22, 28, 35, 42 (C - A*)
    2013 - 24, 31, 38, 45 (C - A*)
    2014 - 20, 26, 33, 40 (C - A*)

    Unit 3 =
    2013 - 21, 27, 33, 36 (C - A*)
    2014 - 28, 33, 38, 43 (C - A*)

    I was thinking that. I can't see why people have seen it as an energy level graph because I don't think it is? :/

    Definitely not an energy level diagram; for a neutralisation reaction the reaction would have been exothermic.. if it were an energy level diagram the line would have gone down; instead it went upwards on our graph.

    Hey i see you are preparing for your exam which is coming up soon. So i am guessing you did the 2014 june b1 exam. I was just wondering if you still remember the 6 marker question from that exam because i think i am doing a mock exam on it pretty soon. So please let me know what it was if you still remember it. Good luck with your exam. 👍

    It never said After so don't make stuff up. The majority of people I asked put 20, still it could be either 14 or 20
    It said total and they were basically trying to ask you what was the overall energy change after the whole experiment (total experiment). So it's end temp take away start temp which is 14. Everyone I know put 14. There is a reason why the graph goes down you know. It didn't just go down for the sake of it.
