Chemistry paper 2 isnt that difficult lol is it?
What are you guys predicting for paper 2? Also will it be harder than paper 1, as a lot of people found paper 1 very easy?

What do you mean a lot of people?
I think that questions are gonna come up.

Last year had lots of maths questions like finding the rate and stuff. I think this year will be more of a knowledge test about chemical analysis and using resources

That's what I was thinking too! Also another prediction of mine is that the questions will most likely be focused chemistry - but that's just my opinion, so take it with a grain of salt.

if your doing higher then the haber process has a almost a 100% chance in coming. im guessing its quite likely for the gas test or halide test to come up as a 1 or 2 marker as it has came up in every paper. memorising those tests would really help picking up marks despite your tier
what do we need to know about cross-links in polymers

what do we need to know about cross-links in polymers


taken from the spec:

Students should be able to:
explain how low density and high density poly(ethene) are
both produced from ethene
explain the difference between thermosoftening and
thermosetting polymers in terms of their structures.

Apparently these are some of the things that may come up
THEY ARE JUST PREDICTIONS THO
However the lady that makes them have gotten the other sciences pretty damn right so far

Predictions:
core knowledge - bonding, periodic table, balancing equations, acids 'n alenes
Polymers and Monomers Hydrocarbons Combustion
Effects on atmosphere
Changes in atmosphere - early atmo, climate change, greenhouse gases
Testing for gases
Rates of reaction - Practicals too
Endothermic and Exothermic
Equilibrium
Recources from Earth - Extracting ores, preserving these, water treatment
Identifying lons
Chromatography

Who is this and do they have predictions for physics?

This looks very familiar to what Primrose kitten said. She has got nearly every science right so far. And i can confirm she has physics :smile:

A lady called Primrose kitten on YouTube. She’s very good!! And yes she has them up for physics

Haber process came up last year as a 6 marker is it still possible for it to come up
