do you reckon they will have a lot of practicals in there since we didnt get to do some?

The exam would have been finalised early in the year, certainly well before the major lockdown.

Further, NESA tends to view issues like decreased opportunity for face-to-face teaching as a matter for special consideration rather than for exam setting.

module 3 in year 11. used for prelims, and used to be in year 12 in the old syllabus. we don't really need it unless they explicitly test redox reactions which is probably not going to happen

oh like the salt bridge thing, really hope that isnt in yr 12

Galvanic cells are part of year 11 content which may be tested as assumed knowledge but I believe it is unlikely that they will appear in the exam. But then again, who knows?

Unless they change it this year, I don't ever recall seeing a single galvanic cell question in all the trial and practice exams I did last year. I just don't think they will explicitly test Year 11 knowledge, as there is already a lot of Year 12 knowledge to know thoroughly.

They won't put the galvanic cells most likely. You need to remember the data sheet is not meant to just be a HSC data sheet it is also for Year 11 students to use as well. Since is there no separate data sheet for Year 11 and 12 all the stuff from each year is put together

Anyways if they ask you something on the redox the question won't be hard. You have the data sheet there with all the equations already given so it's just a matter of choosing the appropriate one
