    Ty - :rip: :cry:
    And thank you :emo: - well your exams on limited sleep can't have gone that bad if you're going into 4th year? Good luck for 4th year though, and that's a harsh sleeping schedule. :eek:
    You're right! They went surprisingly well, but then again the pass mark is 50% and 6 weeks of waking at 6am and working to midnight with a few hours for breakfast lunch and dinner meant some of the later exams I'd prepared for Ahhh pre clin isn't that bad, I just messed around a fair bit during semester time and then it hit me I'd fail so revision break was hell!

    Clinical years are sooooo much better! It's a bit like a job so you don't mind the sleep schedule and you finally link all the stuff you've learnt and it's basically all in the hospital so you're around fascinating patients 24/7. No more 3 hour dissections in a cold room looking to isolate the cranial nerves with some demonstrator barking down your ear!

    Thanks and to you too! It's really not that bad, I naively went out too much during semester time during years 1 + 2. I kept living life as though I was still in freshers week and it meant that the end of the year was hell whereas others I'm sure had an easier time!

    Phenol has an oh directly attached to the benzene ring. It isn't an alcohol.

    Phenyl? Like phenylbenzene?

    That is when an nh2 group is attached to the benzene ring.

    Um, I guess all of AS, but a lot of unit 2 is in unit 4 anyway, I'm just gonna look at things like atom economy (as % yield has come up) and stuff like that

    Benzene is literally C6H6, Phenyl is C6H5- (just to clarify, the '-' is a dash, not a minus charge) which is just benzene attached to something (one of the hydrogens is substituted for something like an amine group). It's like alkane and alkyl, alkyl groups are just alkanes attached to something: C2H6 is an alkane, but C2H5- is an alkyl group.
