    Could you put 2OH- rather than NaOH?
    Dont see why not

    How hard is everyone expecting this exam to be? Paper 1 wasn't that bad I think. It was alright.

    It is going to be at the same level. The only difference is that we won't have multiple choice questions in that paper. There will be more practical questions in the Depth paper I think, because other questions were purely on knowledge so they might put a titration question in there.
    Other than that, basically look at the specification and tick the ones that already appeared in that paper. I think their focus will be on Organic Chemistry in Depth, as there weren't any other questions other than the last question on breadth which wasn't too tricky, only the last 3 marker required a bit of a thought. In terms of physical chemistry, drawing Boltzmann's graphs and exothermic/endothermic reactions may come up.

    Just to confirm, what exactly are we assessed on practicals. Unlike, Physics there's a set of required practicals - is there something similar here?

    Thanks

    Any practical from the book, including PAGs and the ones you haven't done

    Probably just a little harder than the breadth, mainly because they will throw in complicated calculation questions which can throw people off.

    Got 55/70 in the depth specimen paper. Don't know if that's a good or bad indicator tbh

    Wait, do you mean that any PAG can come up or any PAG that is in the specification?

    Any PAG that is in the specification (or titration, test for ions etc). There all in the cgp revision guide.

    Oki, so they wont ask us to synthesis aspirin or something like that?

    What do we think the grade boundaries will be for an A in breadth?
    I thought 56 for an A
    any advances? hmm.

    Anyone have a list or know the all the practicals we need to remember? I'm looking online and it looks like we only did the key ones with our teacher

    I think I got around 45-50 on the breadth paper, which I'm pretty happy with. I found it pretty hard compared to my friends.

    Would that be a B?
