    fu*ck me the specimen papers were so hard it was unbelievable, how did u lot find it, hopefully they make the real papers a bit easier because that specimen was a nightmare,also how do i prepare for the practical questions ? safe .

    i found the specimen papers really hard. It was different to how most of the last papers were like. My teachers did it and got a C. They did say the actual exam wouldn't as hard as the specimen paper. So fingers crossed

    Aha, i did these papers today in school as a test, and yh both sets are definetly much harder then any past papers ive seen, but set 2 paper 1 is much more difficult than set 1 paper 1, also i dont think its the actual difficulty of the questions that made it hard, it was just the type of questions included.

    first of all, thanks for making the thread and getting it going, i want to know something, as i havent done any of the practicals, which i believe their is 6 to do, can you please name them for me to research and potentially do, also what kind of practical questions do they ask in the exam, is it related to the practicals. also who wants the set 2 of the specimen papers, holler ur man for those. safe. out.
    Sorry, I wasn't watching this thread for a while and noticed this today:

    6 practicals:

    1) Make up a volumetric solution and carry out a simple acid base titration

    2) Measurement of an enthalpy change

    3) Investigation of how the rate of a reaction changes with temperature

    4) Carry out simple test tube reactions to identify cations and anions in aqueous solution

    5) Distillation of a product from a reaction

    6) Tests for alcohol, aldehyde, alkene and carboxylic acid

    I've found a great website for you! https://secondaryscience4all.wordpre...eous-solution/

    For practical questions, I'm doing old EMPA papers (controlled assessment) which has loads of practical based questions.

    You can find it here - they're titled Unit 3X : http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/scien...d-mark-schemes

    Hope you find it helpful and good luck with your revision!
