    Hey man,

    Honestly I don't know but make sure you know about group 1 and group 7 elements, and how to draw dot and cross diagrams of ionic bonding exchanging of electrons to get a full outer shell. You need to know how to work out number of moles which is mass (g) over relative formula mass. I can't say what will be 6 marks hopefully data questions and knowing the exam board hopefully lots of ethics - Chemistry is largely maths based so make sure you know all the formulas and how to apply them. Chemistry is one of my weakest so I hope paper is friendly.

    I think the C5 six marker will be on equilibrium - it always seems to be.

    That's right, that's what everyone else at my school got.
    I stupidly put Fe3O2.

    I think I got most of the equilibrium questions wrong... That's probably 8 marks down the drain :/

    I found there was a lot of niche stuff like saponification, I think they might be 2 or 3 marks lower than last year

    Thoughts? I thought it was a nice paper. For the last page did you guys get 25 for Poland? And one before 1.4.

    The question that I struggled with the most was the mass of the calcium carbonate. I got 0.25 g but I don't think that's right as there were 60g of CO2. What did you guys get, either way it was only 1 mark

    Honestly I see the boundaries to be lower this year. It was not easy it was moderate.
