    Okie dokie this is your Spec:

    http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/234599-...try-b-j258.pdf

    Mhm.. it's not actually very clear. It says you need to "explain" things by using the reactivity series but it doesn't say you have to "recall" it. I'd learn it just to stay on the safe side, when I did GCSEs we had to learn the reactivity series so I don't know if it's changed for you.



    EDIT: Yes you do have to learn it

    Ususally I don't think you would need to but it could be more helpful if you did know it.

    Deffo know: Al C Fe H Cu in order. They are the ones that you are most likely to be asked about, e.g. metal extraction etc.

    Others, e.g. K, Na, Ag & Au you're likely to know are being dead reactive/unreactive.
