How did everyone find the paper 1?? I made silly mistakes that I know shouldn't have. But it was medium I guess. Multiple choice = *chef's kiss*.

why was there so much inorganic the advance info they gave us was useless in that regard

I had OCR AS Physics today and luckily they stuck to the advanced info. But from my own experience of AQA yesterday and from what I'm hearing generally about AQA such as yourself, it seems like they are being harsh on students, which is not fair. 15 marks on inorganic including a tests for ions 4 marker is not "low tariff" - instead it is things like this which will separate the grades out. Hopefully the paper 2 is better for your friend

Yes I agree with you there. The grade boundaries cannot be overtly high and I did read on a news article that examiners will mark more leniently. Just praying for the best tbh ---- all will be fine 👌👌

When I spoke to my chemistry teacher, he said that the last question was put in on purpose to test the more 'able' students - my teacher is an examiner for aqa

Kind of, but on the advanced info inorganic was not there, but then they asked approx, 15 marks on it, including a 4 marker. The good thing was that there was only 1 practical on the advanced info - preparing standard solutions - and thats the only practical they asked; this was the 6 marker.
It gave a good lesson for this Friday's paper 2: Revise everything.

i’m just gonna say thank you for answering their q without being rude, so many AS students have a stick up their ass and are getting annoyed when A level students ask if the advanced info was helpful or not 😭😭

No problem! It seems that Edexcel are sticking to the advanced info, whereas AQA and OCR are bending it, AQA more than OCR. (I can't speak for any other exam boards)
Good luck for your exams!

Was there nothing on other parts of titration or was it literally just preparing a standard solution?

Yes, it was worded like this 6 marker attached.

I realise that A level Chem paper 1 was today, apologies for the late reply, I hope it went well!
