    nah It didnt - I did but I don't think you need to
    Good, i didn't think it did. Must be overthinking it . Also do you know if you would have had to put the name of the isomer as z-pent-2-ene? I just wrote pent-2-ene.

    Sorry to bother you but could you confirm if the question on the pressure in the drum was meant to be in standard form or not?

    Not sure why you're acting so funny about sharing the paper but that's your prerogative. However, posting this picture adds nothing to the discussion. Either share the question or don't post at all.

    Shame my college has moved over to AQA for the current AS year or else I'd pop in tomorrow and get a copy to scan in!

    It is a public forum and I do not need your permission to post anything.

    I come on here to help and give advice to students - there are several I have helped a lot believe me. However, I am not posting the paper because it should not be posted. The paper will be used by teachers for next year's mock and as such has not been released to the public by the exam board who also own the copyright.

    Of course you don't need my permission, I was just suggesting that you refrain from posting unhelpful image macros in reply to someone asking for a reminder of one of the questions.

    I'm not sure how much I buy into the whole 'the current paper cannot be released because it will be used as a mock' reasoning. Good sixth form students are old enough to understand why they shouldn't look at mock papers before sitting them. Plus, there is enough discussion about the content of the paper on forums like this one that anyone determined enough to cheat on a mock can do so anyway.
