    Are the specs much different? That would really annoy me tbh, good luck
    I think they're reasonably similar. Thanks, I'll let you know how I find it

    Isn't it a bit early for exam predictions and potential grade boundaries?
    (Original post by ETbuymilkandeggs)
    It's not that early -- exam's less than 4 months away

    I was wondering since our upcoming chemistry exams are coming up if people wanted to be part of a chemistry whatsapp revision group. I guessing most of us use whatsapp so I guess it will be more suitable for everyone then. If you are interested either pm me or responded to this message

    There were a few threads where people posted some answers but I don't think there were full unofficial markschemes.

    Don't worry too much, the exam was relatively easy so with a week full of good revision you should be fine 😊 Good luck!

    I'm not too sure what you mean? If I remember correctly I think I was replying to someone who had a mock with the exam.

    To revise last year I made flashcards to learn the content and then did past papers from the old spec. It actually worked decently!!

    Hope this helps
