I thought it was a very straight forward paper. A few questions I couldn't do so just guessed but apart from that I'm quite happy.

What did everyone else think of it?

Thought multi-choice was hard - had no clue for quite a lot of them - was guessing!!
Although paper 2 wasnt that bad - may have scraped a C.

I thought it was a fair exam too. The multiple choice was quite tricky in parts and there were some concepts that i have never heard of in it but the written section overall was good! smile.gif

No comment...apparently it's not pyschologically good to go through exams after you've sat them smile.gif

the multi choice was a pain in the ass but alot easier than i thought it would've been. it was mostly a straightforward paper i'd say, only one or two weird things. lots of calculations which were good i thought smile.gif

I thought some questions in Section B was ridiculously easy, it's like SQA wants to give free marks to people. Otherwise, the whole paper was decent.

overall i think it was a fair paper.

section A was a bit annoying as i could get it between at least 2 it was choosing between them that was the hard bit lol

section B most of the questions were fair there was a few parts that i was unsure on hopefully done enough to get a decent pass smile.gif

thought the paper was really quite good. i personally really liked the mc as i had done around half the questions just from lots of past paper however the was a few that were really difficult.
section b was really easy as well. looks like me studying paid off rolleyes.gif

totally agree with you there - i also managed to usually get them down to 2 then had to guess!
for the first question it asked about a halide and transition - wasnt there 2 of them? probably something else you do but i just couldnt figure out what!

There was two of those but one of them ended in Ite instead of Ide, and that was wrong.
