Chemistry Olympiad 2021Watch this thread
Thank you for the advice! I know a few people who've taken part in the Icho, but none from the UK (even though im from the UK).
Also, may I ask, how long did it take in terms of preparation to get to this stage? I've covered all the AS + A2 sylllabus and im in year 12. Do I have a realistic shot once I'm in year 13 would you say?
Hi, I'm currently in year 11 and am preparing for the chemistry olympiad. Are there specific topics within the A-Level syllabus which I should look out for? I'm hoping to improve on my results last year from c3l6/olympiad.
Just did the paper, ngl it looked harder than some of the past papers. To anyone that did the paper, what do u reckon grade boundaries will be. Do u reckon they will be similar to last years
Same I found it much more difficult than the 2020 paper. I think they may be fairly low, similar to 2019 maybe. But of course with it being online no idea how some schools managed it. My school invigilated online don't know about others though. What do you think?
Hi, I also did the paper. I found this year quite difficult, but somehow really humorous and enjoyable. They managed to incorporate what is happening in the outside world into the test, which is really cool! I found the final question similar to last year, but putting that one in Q6 added lots of pressure with calculations, so yeh I flopped it badly thought I did it quite well in the 2020 paper. I think the boundaries might increase, like the C3L6 last year because of the whole online thing. Dont know how much the shift will be, but I guess higher. Just hope people don't distrupt the integrity like in C3L6
Haha yeh that picture of trump was quite a surprise lol. It does seem like most people found this harder than usual. Guess the boundaries increasing or decreasing just depends on how schools invigilated. How did your school go through the process? Did they invigilate remotely?
