    For my chemistry moc, I got 52/75 having made numerous stupid mistakes but I looked (for the June 2008 unit 4 Edexcel paper) and you only needed a raw mark of 55/75 for an A in the real thing! It wasn't even that hard a paper to be honest.. I just didn't realise stupid things like in pure water [H+] = [OH-] and that a test for a carboxylic is to see bubbles when Na2CO3 is added and more stupid mistakes

    Oh well, it's good to know the grade boundary was low when I didn't find it too bad Really need an A in unit 4.. How's everyone else's revision coming along? I need to do more biology myself - been focusing on chemistry too much.

    Well... firstly, the test for a carboxylic acid is stupid - because any acid would still cause bubbles to be given off - so I think the mark scheme is stupid :p:

    Pure water just has an equilibrium between H3O+ and OH-.

    It's usually about 48/60 for an A for Unit 4 (nuffield) so I can't really afford to completely disregard the dozen silly one markers they decide to throw in for the fun of it. I'm hoping there's a lot of calculations questions though - easy marks.

    Did a past paper in school today, one of the 2008 ones, and my teacher said the A boundary was about 40! Hard paper.

    Also, who's in your sig?!

    Yeah, the January '08 one right? I don't know whether I'd like to get a tough paper with low grade boundaries or a good paper with high grade boundaries. I actually think I'd prefer the former since I tend to slip up more in good papers somehow.

    Oh and it's Mat Gordon.

    You should report that to a moderator. That user should not be allowed to get away with leaving such an offensive message.

    Well yeah but it's more common and makes more sense to use H+ instead of H3O+ and that's in the mark scheme.. It's just another chemistry flaw. The carboxylic thing is stupid - they didn't even allow the reaction with PCL5 where white fumes are given off, yet they allow 'bubbles' with a sodium carbonate..

    There was another really stupid question (always are in chemistry). It asked for an equation to represent the ionisation of water. Apparently, the answer was:

    H2O (l) </> H3O+ (aq) + OH- (aq)

    I thought that was stupid as technically, that's the dissociation of water, not ionisation and the standard definition for ionisation clearly states that it must be in gaseous atoms, although obviously water is an exception - was just a stupid question overall.

    One of the equilibrium questions asked you to say what pressure would be needed to double the value of the mole fraction for one of the reactants - it was a bit tricky.
