Hey,

What did everyone think of todays exam?

I thought it went really good although there were a few tricky questions. The last question seemed difficult to me when I looked at it but when I did it, I think I got it right.

Apart from that it went well, hopefully I'll get an A. cool.gif

Quite a good way to finish off my 5th year exam I though, I asked my teacher about questions and they thought that I got most of it right.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

I'll say a B. I'm just so wiped out after all the other exams.
The race is long, and in the end it's only with yourself.

Like I said in another thread, I think the exam went really well. Not too difficult (though I wouldn't say it was easy - what was with the question on chemical shift?! Never seen that rubbish in my life before!)

It went okay. Better than the pre-lim. Hopefully got a B. *insert much praying here* I managed to answer all of the questions, even though I know I put a LOT of silly mistakes sad.gif [Calculations. Are. Horrible.!]


Laura; I had a chemical shift Q in my pre-lim. But we were never taught about it. I think it's one of those weird questions where it's not been directly taught to you, but you have the knowledge to understand it. Or something wink.gif



Wooo and yay. Twas my last exam. Now all I have to do is sit and wait until August 10th sad.gif

for the last question i only did two lines, one for the methyl group and 1 for what was left. It was actually quite easy if you could work out what was happending from the examples given and used the data book

It was all laid out in the databook, the placement and the components to make up the molecule

If i am not here i am somewhere else

I just had 2 lines too. I thought that Q was pretty easy actually, once I'd read it a few times tongue.gif

That exam was not easy. B hopefully and it so unfair cos I was really really really close to getting an A in the prelim (an the pass mark was 85%).
Half ideas,half quality, half a million pound law suit!

the chemical shift one was simple.

the first one you just read out the data book, the second one was propyne (not prop-1-yne cause that dont exist everybody)

and the third one had two lines.


i got 76% for the prelim, 80% for the written part and i foudn that really really difficult i think feindish compared to past papers. i think every year we have a difficult paper like that, last year it was credit math(even though i got a 1 1 for that)

hopefully i might have scraped and A if not ill presuade the teacher to appeal even though she say i cant appeal for an A with that result......i ask why???

I think I failed quite tragically. It is the weakest of all my subjects, and in the midst of three exams this week. Ah well. Not resitting it.

I'm quite sure, that it was more than two lines - I got 7

In the explanation at the beginning of the question, it said that the number of lines was n+1 (n being the number of hydrogen atoms attached to the next carbon atom) So I got a group of three lines roung number 1 on the x axis and a group of four lines round about 2.7 (or it could have been 3.7, can't quite remember lol! tongue.gif )

Yeh that's exactly what I got! smile.gif

Im sure it was more than 2 because in the example they did the CH3 got more than 2 lines, although as I don't have the paper I'm not entirely sure.

But I still think I have got that wrong because at te 3.7 end where I drew 4 lines, 2 of them were small. unsure.gif blink.gif

lol. I doubt I have made my explanation clear to anyone.

in the example the molecule was being split into components of which i got two a methyl group and whatever it was that was left

however, its basic KU in AH chem so someone who sat AH chem can give a reliable answers, not that there many of them about

If i am not here i am somewhere else

lol. I doubt I have made my explanation clear to anyone.

That is exactly what I got - 2 big lines and 2 small lines. I don't really know what the reason for that was, but in the example it gave at the beginning after the explanation, that had a group of four lines, and 2 of them were small, so that's why I put 2 small and 2 big.

wow, this is getting kinda complicated, what with all the quotes lol! tongue.gif
