    Thought I may as well set up the thread now since no one else had. Some stuff that people might find useful:

    Chemguide - http://www.chemguide.co.uk/ (high quality in depth notes on most of the topics)

    Chemrevise- http://chemrevise.org/3-edexcel-revision-guides/ (short and concise notes for each topic)

    Specification - http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...ry_Issue_6.pdf

    Papers - http://www.physicsandmathstutor.com/...dexcel-unit-4/

    http://www.physicsandmathstutor.com/...dexcel-unit-5/

    (has all the papers currently on edexcel website, as well as the IAL papers in one place)

    If anyone else has some good links I have missed, please let me know and I will add them to the op.

    Feel free to use this thread for any questions you may have, but please remember thatyou are not allowed to ask for details of practicals and anyone doing so will be reported.
    hey guys i know im stupid for even asking. i had some problems and i have studied nothings and the unit 5 exam is literally tomorrow. any predictions for what might come so i can touch those topics as far as i can for now so i could atleast get away with half dent marks. please help!!!!

    I'm just going to say yes to aldehydes and ketones xD

    Someone else may be able to clarify because I'm at the point of using the old tactic of hoping some things won't come up tomorrow .
    Lol snap xD I seriously hope our paper isn't as hard as the IALs...otherwise I am seriously doomed.

    For this question, does it mean that the mole ratio between Methoxy group and S2O3 2- is 1:6 ?

    Thank you! Should we apply this every time we there is more than two equations because like the questions always used to give two equations, the first involved the formation of Iodine and the second the formation of Iodide that reacted with S2O3 2- and according to the reactant the mole ratio was not always 1:2 ?

    Would seem veeery unlikely.
    oh damn I'm screwed so bad

    i think we can
    Resits in AS and A level qualifications For AS and A levels we proposed that:
    •  Students taking AS and A levels in the last scheduled sitting should have theopportunity to resit these qualifications after the final scheduled award,regardless of the subject and exam board.

    So why is 1 :6 ?

    Or anyone else?

    Need to go to sleep soon

    EDIT: Never mind I just figured it out

    I know right! Glad I'm not the only one who finds those papers HORRIBLE!!! Like 90% of it is application of knowledge!

    Hey Don, do you have any idea how to work out which electrodes are used to measure standard electrode potentials? Sometimes it's the metal of the solution of ions you have, sometimes it's Pt?! How are we meant to know lol

    If someone could explain these to me I would be eternally grateful From the IAL Jan 16 so if you're currently doing it no need to look as I have marked it - just not understanding why the answers are what they are and need some explanation for them

    Can someone please explain this question to me? Why don't we multiply the number of moles of chromium (II) ethanoate by two to get the number of moles of Cr2+? Name:  ImageUploadedByStudent Room1466547023.634203.jpg
