    Do you guys know if we can resit Unit 1 for the old spec? I thought it was just for the new spec?

    I got a C in both, 77ums in both actually even though I thought the unit 5 paper was easier!

    I just assumed that was for Year 13 students this year? So it would be the new spec which they sat?

    I'm doing the CHEM4 and CHEM5 legacy papers just finished my notes on CHEM4 and got a B in a past paper.

    Started my notes on CHEM5 and planning on doing exercises from AQA A2 Chemistry - A-Level Chemistry and other websites for CHEM4 to keep me fresh on it as I'm learning the CHEM5 content.

    Once I get closer to finishing the CHEM5 notes I'm going to start doing past papers on both papers, starting with CHEM4.

    Message me if you want some input or questions on other things chemistry related, it'll be easier to work if we're helping each other! Nice to know there is a mini community of us

    I thought the paper was alright, not too hard, easier than last years. I'm just mad about the fact that the synthesis routes were basically AS! Seriously did anyone remember that you have to use the reagent KOH to convert the haloalkane back to an alkene? Also, did anyone get the V isomer that was supposedly optically active?
