    Yeah, I think the six markers were okay but I didn't expect the amount of topic 3 maths questions. Do you think the grade boundaries will be okay?

    Yeah I know what you mean the only thing I really knew was that he was partly responsible for the discovery of neutrons

    Quantitative chemistry is my fav. unit so I was glad those questions were... in abundance?I missed out crystallisation when i was doing revision but i could remember there was a dish involved. I ended up writing about how magnesium is cultured in agar jelly in a petri dish xD.YIKES

    Ahhh, quantitative chemistry confuses me so much xD that's the main reason why I'm so worried.

    I thought there were a few hard questions but I'm mainly kicking myself about not dividing the concentration question at the end by 2. What questions did you find particularly difficult?
    I did the same, how many marks will we lose?

    Well it's mainly the fact that I'm not good at quantitative chemistry and that it featured on the exam so heavily.

    If we've done all the method properly then I'd say only about 1 or 2

    All ya needed to say was he found that atoms contained a neutral charge in an atom and he named it neutrons he also found it was located in the nucleus of an atom with protons.

    They should be low around 23-25 marks for a level 5 as it was pretty difficult, and like you said first year of new spec.

    Hey, what did you guys get for the very last question about the mass of sodium hydroxide I think. I got 0.125g but everyone I asked said they got 0.126?

    Only think it was one or two may be wrong tho. Yeah there's a bit of a debate about the answer in my school.
