I'm struggling with calculations, any advice on how to improve with that? None of my teachers are willing to help me so I dont really know how to check my answers etc

>heavy maths

Plugging numbers into an equation does not constitute heavy maths

The one in relation to the practicals usually (like the one in the new specimen papers)

Hmm it really depends how hard they make it...i want it be like the first set of Specimen Papers as they were soooo much easier...the second set are an absolute *****....so hard! If i got them in the exam, i'd surely fail.

But to answer your question, my teacher said he doesn't think they'll change that much...about 78% for an A which equates to 62/70 i think...but i'm not sure i feel it will be a low lower...i kind of just want a B or a C in Chem this year. B maybe like 68% and C 58% roughly..What do you think the grade boundaries will be like?

I think they'll be a lot lower... Yeah as the second set of specimen papers are a ***** paper 1 I think could be really hard. Then paper 2 I find easy. I assume depending on difficultly... 70-75% A then take 10% off for grades lower. I'm doing biology too and that's hard af... So I'm hoping all grade boundaries are really low. As it's the first year they've done it

Apparently the papers are very similar to the specimens so just go over them

My teachers work on a percentage rule, with 40% being an E , 50% a D and so on. Has anyone else done the specimen papers and if so what marks did you get? I got 2 U grades 😭😭

Are there another set of AS specimen papers somewhere? My teachers have to keep guessing and making them up themselves.

I think the long mark questions are likely to be designing a practical etc and improving experimental procedure. Anyone has any ideas?
