    How could you have studied hard and found that hard? That paper had to be the easiest paper I've done. Do all the past papers and the questions are the same, just worded different, or a different element. I just did 8 past papers over 2 days for revision and got 65 on that paper. (Admittedly, compared my answers to unofficial mark scheme, so may not be correct.)

    Not everyone's you, lol
    I had an evening to revise and an early morning to revise
    Exam pressure can make you get questions wrong that you wouldn't have got wrong otherwise
    Id be lucky to scrape an A, but otherwise a B for this paper

    I dont know why - i did all the past papers twice - and i studied over 7-8 months
    but i don't know what happened today! just really upset and you seem pretty confident which is good

    no ofcourse not, you'll probably only lose one haha. it's all about the method and that was just an additional step. 4/5 marks

    Thanks

    Can I just ask two more questions and thats it?

    For the isotope and periodic table one( different Ar) : I said the periodic table uses a greater range of isotopes ? Is that correct?

    For H2S and H202 I said : Oxygen is more electronegative so there is a greater difference in electronegativity which creates hydrogen bonding which is stronger than dipole-dipole as in H2S there is a small difference in electronegativity. ?

    Thanks

    I agree it was a terrible paper, I reckon I'm on the A/B boundary, but don't worry about it now, then it will just have a huge affect on ur remaining exams. Just try to do well in unit 2, but don't give urself a target for what you have do get otherwise you will just get really stressed out and there is no point of doing that, just try to forget. It's only one exam, it hardly defined you as a person

    Thanks a lot - im gna try to get 130 ums - study really hard - anything is possible
    However , its tough if don't make it i want to get as Close to an A as possible so i get predicted an A for uni applications.

    I dont know what it was with this paper -Hopefully the Gb boundaries are low , most people on tsr are like oxbridge quality so its not a good way to judge the boundary - i think i dropped 16-18 marks
