AQA C1 yesterday's paper

Discussion in 'Science' started by s20blu, Mar 3, 2011.

  1. Sorry - should have made clear it was GCSE Chemistry paper
     
  2. Hi
    The pupils in our school made similar comments. They thought it was the hardest of the 3 papers (biology, physics and chemistry) and were convinced it contained topics they had not been taught (although they could not specify what these were). I imagine if they thought they did not know the topic, it could have been a HSW type question and the example used could have confused them.
     
  3. If it was the higher paper multiple choice C1a then there was a stinker of a question on the molecular structure of alcohol. Whilst not strictly in the spec, the blurb in the question gave you the clue to answer. Something along the lines of, which two of the following can be a structure of alcohol. A bit unfair, as you generally teach them how to recognise alkanes.
