Practice a lot of past papers. With that you will know what to expect and what to focus on more as well!!!! Orgo chem is just memorising trends and it's nomenclature and all of that so do a LOT OF PROBLEMS and you'll be good to go:smile:

I have no clue. I've spent the first hour only on the multiple choice and didn't even have time to attempt the whole last question
Yeah mc was honestly hard
Too many drawing structure that takes time
Yep. I agree! And all I could see was Cs and Hs and my mind was going crazy. Didn't expect it to be this hard
the most dogshit paper i ever did. Got an A in my as. think I'm gonna come back down to a solid c courtesy of the unit 4 paper. why was it soo much harder than the last few years papers
how is everyone preparing for unit 5, I am freaking a bit out by the amount of organics I have to remember (context I learned biology nd chemistry a levels in 9 months and just have unit 5 and 6 to go (private candidate)).
