Anyone else here doing the old spec (2421) AQA Chemistry papers (Chem 4 Kinetics, Equilibria, and Organic Chemistry, or Chem 5 Energetics, Redox, and Inorganic Chemistry) this June?

My college got shut down so I'm doing it as an external candidate. Don't know if anyone's doing it with me!

What grades did you get last time and what are you hoping to get this year?

Hey! I found it okay but I'm just worried the grade boundaries are going to be ridiculous. Cardiff uni have honoured my offer from last year thankfully, what about you?

thank god haha. yeah i know what you mean, silly silly mistakes. for the termination that should be right, I did it in structural formula so I put CHCl2CHCl2, its a primary, and i put that glucose is a renewable resource and NaOH used is acidic.

I think you have to put NaOH is corrosive, rather than just acidic, to get the mark.

I made a few silly mistakes but the whole paper was literally past exam questions.
