In short. Yes. CHM5 is generally regarded as the hardest paper of the lot, since it's a nasty A2 module + loads of synoptic elements.


I haven't done a huge amount so far, but since I took CHM2 & 3 this June that revision should help for the AS side of things.

It's the bloomin multiple choice you have to watch out for, some questions are pure evil.

Yeah same situation here. It's pretty crappy that I have my hardest exams right at the end, so the only last minute revision I could have done is at least a week prior to the exam itself (except for cramming this weekend).


How's everyone finding CHM4? It's not too bad in my opinion, just hope we don't get a too hard nmr question, hate 'em.

I flunked chemistry with a D last year so had to retake the lot, chem5/6 totally screwed me over.

Unlucky to have another exam next week, particularly synoptic, that's major bad luck, it'll be 24/7 chemistry for me this weekend.

1:30 normally. The exam board knows how hard everyone finds module 5, so they boost your marks accordingly. Module 6 is easy (especially the cryptic second section - answer A if 1 + 3 are correct and an equinox approaches on a day beginning with M) if you don't think about them too hard. If you ponder for long enough, you can manage to twist everything so that it sounds correct - just learn to rule out quickly and ruthlessly because your gut instinct is often right.

The average for an A on a Chem5 paper is about 80 looking over last 4 papers. Highest its been was 87 well below the lowset 75. So what ever the papers like UMS should give a nice helping hand.
