    If you're talking about OCR, then I'm doing it. There's so much to learn it's criminal! I'm not looking forward to it at all!

    hey i'm doing it too. its OCR everybody. i dunno how you really learn it. you just hammer it into your brain or just try and picture those blimmin molecules.

    one way i've hacked it is just revisiting my notes on a really frequent basis because by the time i'm really sick of it i start chanting the notes so i think that was partly how i got it into my head.

    its ages away, don't worry so soon

    I have no idea but silver also forms [Ag(NH3)2]+ . i went to a revision day on mod 5 and the actually examiners were hosting it and they said dnt worry if u think uve done rubbish in the exam, everyone does in mod 5 so the grade boundaries are really low! we live in hope! :P
