haha it was pretty good!!

try not to worry too much about the electrolysis and quantitative chemistry questions. try and look over the equations beforehand and then write them down at the start of the exam so they are there if your mind goes blank

the half equation questions are normally 1 or 2 marks. if in doubt, put a 2 in front of everything and hope for the best. you’ll definitely be able to make up the marks in another question

good luck, you’re going to smash it!!! <33

if it’s the structure and bonding of diamond or graphite/graphene, i think i’ll be okay but i need to go over the metallic bonding and some other stuff that i normally get wrong
I'm stressed but at the same time I'm confident with the vast majority of the content so idk if I am stressed but I also think I am and I'm so unproductive rn and AH
