    ahh, you're a lower sixth student too, similar situations then. I'm sure you did well. I've looked at a couple of past papers but no point really revising since most of the paper is a2 level or not on the a level spec at all. The organic synthesis questions are practically impossible -_-. Questions 1,2 and 3 were answerable then huh?

    Did the paper today and I have to say its quite difficult. I found one or two of the questions relatively straightforward, but there was one question which I didn't even attempt. Good luck to anyone else who's yet to do it!
