    It was great, I knew everything except for how to convert ethene into ethanol. There wasn't anything complicated fortunately; not difficult at all, as long as you studied.

    see if this helps you to determine the variant, questions about mitosis and meiosis, nuclear vision and beta particles, mammoths hibernation, kinetic energy of water falling in a waterfall, kinetic energy of a train and some hormones. swell as the hydrocarbon stuff. i studied a lot!! and i am usually an A* student but i don't know why i did soooo bad on this test, just hope paper 6 on tuesday is very easy! :p

    oh so you're probably not doing my variant LOL. mine was variant 2! and i think it was hard too! they gave 12 questions instead of 9 like usual :(. there were evaporation, respiration, crystallisation and a lot more. there was hydrocarbon too and then there was waves and stuff

    see thats the problem those topics you just said i studied them in so much depth so i would have loved to take your exam. on the other hand our exam had mitosis and meiosis which our teacher didn't teach us, he just posted it was in the exam 2 days before and told us to learn it by ourselves!!!!
    in my exam there was no eye or heart questions which I'm sure i would have got 100% in them! by the way our exam was also 12 questions!!!! WTF?? it was 28 pages long!! worst exam ever!!!!!!

    well its very difficult to say cause on paper 6 its mostly questions like '' measure these leaves with your ruler and calculate the average length '' so it could be anything, other stuff related, it will probably ask about cation and anion tests as well as trends in the periodic table, I'm sure that some rate of reaction stuff is coming in and the classic magnesium with HCL question. and thats about it! what do u thinks is gonna come up?
