    When I was doing it I thought it was going really badly, but once I came out and compared answers I think it was ok Did you get a postive or negative value for the Hess' law question?

    I thought that the questions were nice, but I did not have much time at all. I skipped a few challenging questions to come back to, and then I didn't have any time at the end. I was shocked considering I could finish the practice questions in about 1 hour and 10 minutes. It was a mad rush, and when I think back to the exam, I don't remember much of the questions. Anyone else feel this way? (Maybe it was just me that's not in exam mode yet!)

    Me too. I'm not too worried as I got a decent grade last year, just wanted to bump it up a bit. It is just a little frustrating as I spent so much time trying to recap my knowledge on the course. I was so confident!
    What went wrong?!

    Hmm... I think it will go either way: it will either be high because most people taking it are all A2 chemistry students (so they expect us to do well), or it will be low because the questions were a bit more "alternative" the the past few years.
    Looking back, most of the boundaries are around 57/58 for an A. That's do-able, right?
    No worries now. It's all over - just study hard for the rest of the exams to come. Good luck!
