Grade boundaries?
Id say:
44 = A
40 = B
35 = C

How'd it go?

Just realised that I said NH4 had permanent dipoles, not hydrogen bonding......*major face palm*

Same, but as long as you talked about van der waals' for the other molecules, you should get 3-4 marks for the question.

Well, people were crying how easy it was apparently. It took me so long to do the calc question and it was an unconventional paper. Periodic trends, being the easy part of f321, didn't hold many marks either so definitely unconventional

Potentially easier but different. People tend to revise stuff based on previous papers more, so I think a few people will skew that boundary down

Likewise

I did all the OCR sciences and they were all noticeably different than past papers haha I think OCR want to catch people out this year - may have worked - may not have worked; can't really tell

Yeah it was hydrogen bonding. I put dipole dipole interactions and didn't even think about hydrogen bonds for some reason :/
