I think this is what will come up:

  • Practicals – Rates of reaction, Chromotography
  • Maths (Gradient of graph, surface area, volume, percentage etc)
  • Melting / Boiling Points
  • Life Cycle Assessment
  • Atmospheres & Evolution
  • Fractional Distillation, Combustion
  • Testing - for gases, flame tests, ions etc
  • Organic Chemistry (Alkanes, Alkenes, Carboxylic acid, Alcohol)
  • Monomers & Polymers

I think they’ll put lots of rates of reactions and chemical analysis such as tests for anions and cations on the paper to trip people up because in my opinion paper 2 chem is much easier than paper 2 of the other science.

Um, something like testing for halides or dilute acids and having to find what the colour the precipitate would turn. It links to the unit 8 core practical . For rates, I believe there will be a question linking to la chateliers principle with the equilibrium because this is Grade 8-9 difficulty

what practicals will most likely come up or do you think all of them might appear?
also any one got any predictions for the 6 marker?

Predicted questions:

Cow milk (lots of it)
How to make your own required practical on sewage waste.
Why a farmer needs NPK fertiliser to make more food.
Probably some biology topics (watch out!)
How to fart and then reverse the reaction.
Then, analyse how reversing the reaction will help the environment.
The rest will probably not be on the specification. Good luck!

Paper 1 was fine. Paper 2 should be easier though, at least that's how i found it in the mocks :P
