    All the experiments they asked about were in the syllabus so you should have done them in class at some point. I thought the worst part of the exam was the multiple choice, some of those questions were really wordy and not to the point.

    Yeah, I think the test is a little too short for three hours. I stayed for about 2 and a half.

    man that test wasn't that bad. buh as what some other people said, some of the experiments wern't even done in class. even if you do well in this, doesnt it scale you down since its a easy course?

    It depends on how well you do. If you manage to get band 6, it's good for your uai.

    I found the multiple choice, lifestyle chem (cept the last one about how much oil) and bionics questions easy, but thought the elective and information systems questions really hard.

    yeah weird...

    it was ok, but i was SO annoyed as everything i did study wasn't included. i found the "colloid" question very weird also. but oh well... i think i would've passed. i loved my option section (disasters) that was probably the only normal section.

    the elective (diasters) was great really straight forward questions.... i was the 3rd last 2 leave after 2hr 15... questions about carbon dioxide?? i bullshitted the 1mrk, didnt do 2mrk but the 3mrk was good... overall hard compared 2 last yrs.. hopefully the markers realise so our marks may get scaled a bit..

    Overall - I didn't think it was too bad. Mulitple choice seemed a little ridiculously wordy. I didn't have to think so hard in this one, in comparison to the trial exam. I hate to jinx myself though - so I will shutup now! haha Goodluck to the rest of you with more exams to come... Gotta return to the study!

    hey, i didnt like the exam at all, i think mostly because i hadnt done the experiments, so that made it hard, i just bullshitted my way through it, i wasnt going to leave a question blank. i loved my elective (disasters), that was teh easiest part of teh test, i think i did really well i n taht section, shame about teh rest!
    oh well, best of luck to all for teh rest of teh exas, i have 1 more!!!! YAY!!!!!

    my thoughts

    I don't think the exam was too bad, was a bit harder than the past papers i had done, but all in all i reckon it was fair. What was with the missing olive oil one but??? hehehe

    i hate it.. i usually do great at science and i love it but i hated this exam..

    i missed the question about the oil too.. i had no idea
    and i totally forget the stuff about the carbon dioxide in the air.. stupid friggen

    we didnt do the last experiment in the syllabus for our option so i missed that aswell..

    so i threw away about 7 marks..

    i thought it was ok, if you knew your stuff it was fine. unfortunately, i didnt study a lot of the things in there. for that 7 mark question about the development of communication systems i wrote about using electromagnetic waves for communication and satellites, but now when i think about it their pretty much the same. what should i have wrote about?

    Umm I think the missing oil one was to do a comparitive experiment of the solution, suspension and the colloid. Do you remember that one? I could be COMPLETELY wrong - correct me if I am guys! You shine a beam of light through all mixtures and when the light is scattered and giving a cloudy effect on the colloid one... the particles are therefore evenly dispersed throughout- so you have created a colloid with enough oil balance.
