AQA CHEM5 15th June 2015 [OFFICIAL THREAD]Watch
It has been suggested that to prevent confusion there should be 2 seperate threads for CHEM4 & CHEM5 instead of the current one thread for both exams so I have created this. How prepared is everyone for the CHEM5 exam which is on the 15th June 2015. Is everyone feeling prepared? I personally think CHEM5 is ok, the only thing I struggle on is transition metals but its been a long time since I revised CHEM5. I last did CHEM5 in the easter holidays. Going to hit CHEM5 after my c3 exam

The Student Room CHEM4 thread
I think there are less odd questions possible on CHEM5 than CHEM4 at least, nothing like that cyclodiene bond enthalpy question.
So far i remember that chromatography didn't come up & neither did infrared spectroscopy. Hopefully if people can reply with what they remember we might be able to collectively make some predictions!
Also I know i haven't been using these threads very long but if you're here just to bore on about how "easy" you thought unit 4 was, jog on mate, soz
Failed my Chem5 mock a few weeks ago, absolutely dreading it! (Redox is fine though!) Since then, I've memorised the transition complex reactions and thermodynamic definitions, and I'm working on the period 3 equations - any other advice? Going back to the past papers tomorrow
there's always a nasty (or nice, depending how good a chemist you are) question on transition metal titrations at the end; you usually have to construct an equation and the use the mole ratio to work something out. there's a couple of those that are tricky so make sure you go over those!!
