    I didn't think it was too bad. Thought it was quite nice compared to past papers but just my opinion!

    Yup I thouight that was a little sneaky lol Made sense when I reread though. I feel okay about that actually, I think I did the best I could have done anyway and only left one tiny bit of the last question. Will probably feel nervous when people start talking about it properly and comparing notes but as of right now I don't think it went too badly!
    Finished at 11.30 and just walked in the door freezing cold boooo! Time to make a start on PCR methinks now!

    agree absolute torture

    2nd attempt at this paper. Passed sect 1 in June and failed section 2. This time i know it is the other way round. Section 1 was absolutely awful. I looked at it for 10mins and could not work out what to do so went straight to section 2. once i finished section 2 i tried to to tackle the 1st question. could not get my head round it and ended up with ridiculous answers for the most part. Did not managage to do 1.2 or 1.3 (no answer no mark....FAIL). I just wish that when you revise past papers they would not go and change the format. This is an exam and we are under enough pressure as it is without our minds being thrown at the first hurdle.

    Good luck to all....BRING ON JUNE 10

    I did exactly the same, the first question thow me, sat trying to understand what they wanted, could feel the panic starting, so went straight to section 2, also then didnt have time to do 1.2 or 1.3. Defo failed section 1, just didnt have enough time to think about it, recon i could do it now, but with that clock ticking, too much writing it was tough, i did so much revision for this paper, am anoid with myself for geting triped up on one question, therefore not having enough time on section 1, likewise no answer no mark!

    I noticed you'd put 'ridiculous answers' I also had them to begin with, in the form of 5,000,000 grams just for the 1st answer!! But then i noticed the other quantities were in kgs so i divided it by 1000 to get the answer in kgs (5000 kgs). I hope it was the same ridiculous answer you got then at least youll get marks, even if it wasnt converted into kgs youll be fine.

    i did got 5000 somewhere in my workings but i thaught this was completely wrong as the question was asking for a 'standard' which as i recall some months ago a tutor stated that a standard is one unit, so to me 5000kgs did not seem right to me. when i looked at the 'actual' given i think i remember seeing 4000kg so if this is the total amount actually used for 9500?? units how could 5000kgs be for 1 unit. i could be totally wrong about this as i literally lost faith in trying. I don't even know what answers i gave in the end. Like Angie1 i worked so hard on past papers
