    Ummmm Guess? On the first exam I did the multi-choice questions first but that meant I almost ran out of time...So I would just leave them to the end so then if you nearly run out of time you can just guess the last few...They are only 1 mark each...

    Is atomic structure on the paper? Also do we need to know equations for tollens reagent and fehlings solution?
    With Tollen's and Fehling's I think that you just need to know the positive and negative results for aldehyde and ketone

    Lmao that was my strategy for the last paper
    But I think they make up 15 marks of the paper!! there has to be a trick to it tbh, you cant be expected to work out all that stuff for a mark

    no and I'm not sure, what kinda equations?
    Tollens reagent
    CH3CHO + 2Ag+ + H20 ---> CH3COOH + 2AG + 2H+

    Fehling's solution
    CH3CHO + 2Cu2+ +2H2O ---> CH3COOH + Cu2O + 4H+

    i've never seen those in my life BUT it might be helpful to remember them because they could possibly ask a redox question on it
    Redox is not in this exam mate

    Is it possible for any of the six practicals to come up or is it only specific to the topics in unit 2, if so which ones can come up?

    Yes, any of the 6 can come up

    I was just wondering...For elimination reactions is there only 1 reaction we need to know? - - - With ethanol and OH- ions and obviously a halogenoalkane (all under heat)?

    I'm not sure but my teacher said you should know the dehydration of cyclohexanol to cyclohexene mechanism (which is basically the same as the ethanol one)

    We were asked last time to write up about the voumetric solution preparation, so I would guess that would rule out assessed practical one. Assessed practical four is on identifying cations (group 2) and anions (group 7) which is part of periodicity so again I would say that is unlikely to come up. The remaining four practicals can come up, so just prioritise those. I would say that assessed practical 5 or 6 is more likely to come up though.

    Regarding multiple choice, it was advised that you spend 65 minutes doing the main part of the exam, and 25 on the multiple choice: this worked for me in paper one.

    However, I would also do the main section first as if you are rushed for time and by rushed I mean you have about 5 minutes left, at least you will be able to guess some multiple choice ones. Having said that, because time is so tight, definitely move on if you know you can't do a question: it's better to answer questions later on that you can answer than to waste time and then miss easy marks on questions you can actually do.

    Best of luck guys

    How would you do that mechanism?

    Do you think bonding questions will come up? Paper 1 was pretty full of them so what do you think?
