    Same! I've finally found someone who got the same! :P
    The correct answer was 300 as there were two gases and you had to add their volumes

    So what are unid like Cambridge gonna do if theres no ums? Are they going to look at raw mark?
    Admissions test and just use your raw mark. I quite like showing the raw marks so you can see exactly how you did and if you need to remark immediately.

    Fml I didn't clock there were two gases

    I reckon it'll still be around 73 ish% for an A

    I didn't realise that at first either and put 60 after working out one. But later while checking realised there was oxygen as well.

    I think I've got around 50-52 marks. What grade do you reckon that is?

    This is a new specification, so I am not expecting high marks in this.

    Yes I know. That's what I put. It's because of the molar ratios, right?

    Attachment 539821how did you all do this question and what was your answer
    Part c btw
    I did 0.15/(45/1000) and got 3.33
    Would that be right

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I calculated mole ratio and the minimum concentration needed (3)!and since he had 10% more, I did 1.1*3 which is 3.3

    But raw marks arent the same as ums so say aqa chemistry could be hqrder than ocr this year but getting a 45 on both would be viewed the same

    So, say both exams are out of 70 marks and AQA is harder than OCR. Then the marks for an A in AQA would be lower than OCR.

    The key thing you have to remember is that this is now a stand alone AS. It doesn't affect your final A2 grade. So, you would get your grade based on raw marks.

    3.33 is correct. I said 90% is 0.15 moles. So 100% is 1/6 moles and then just worked it out as normal
    so volume affects concentration?

    moles=concentration * volume

    concentration=moles/volume

    Of course volume affects concentration, look at units, mol per dm3

    I was under the impression that concentration decreases if you dilute something with water.
    Silly me.

    Concentration does decrease.. If you add water the volume increases and moles stay the same so concentration therefore decreases

    There is no UMS as this is a linear specification. You will just get a raw mark (your total over both papers) and a grade.
    Is it confirmed that raw marks will be reported on our results sheet?

    I don't think it's confirmed but I expect that they will (when I took linear GCSE mathematics they did). If not you can always get them from your teacher/exams officer.

    But then to what degree do you advantage a candidate like before cambridge looked for above 90/95 ums as ums was a decent comparative method but now you cant really set a threshold to what youre looking for so maybe they have changed to raw marks but I dont see that working. Like they may both be As but what type of A because ums isnt linear

    I think the answer is that you don't. Cambridge are introducing new Admissions Assessments for 2017 entry which will replace the role of UMS.

    The ocr textbook page 120 says that silver sulfate is insoluble so shouldn't that multiple choice question be D - effervescence and precipitate?
    exactly thats what i thought but that chemistry teacher who uploaded the test said there was no precipitate either :/ i hope they give the mark either way although i doubt they will
