    Yup i havent heard of anyone tht think tht they failed. Overall everyone is predicting at least a B
    Dont worry though im sure tht many ppl from other schools found it hard. ☺
    although theres going to b ppl from private skools tht are gonna get the best marks...😕
    So we cannot predict how exactly r the grade boundaries going to b...Have you had a look at the unofficial marking scheme?

    Tysm!! I was really worried about that exam, went in expecting an A*, came out feeling like I definitely got a C, but after looking at the markscheme I don't think I did terribly... I got some of the mole/volume questions wrong and probably lost a few marks in section D because I had five minutes to do all of it (time management isn't my forté) but everyone I talked to thought the exam was meh...still think grade boundaries will be lower than last year tho, hopefully it's an A/A* overall. Thanks again for the link.

    I agree, I found it much harder than previous papers. How did your school find it?
