    It'z Ova!

    It's Over. I can't believe it is finally over. I never thought this day would come, but it has! Woohoo! We can't sit here complaining about the past, because we can't change it. So who cares?

    Exam Paper

    I happen to be on Karl's side for this one. It IS possible and has been done in multiple exams....people who finish early write down the questions on the white booklet or on scrap paper. Idiots.

    Trick question? Shipwrecks and salvage

    I also went with this. Gave the oxidation, reduction and overall equations, explained that Magnesium would oxidise in preference forming Mg ions and that Iron ions would be reduced to form solid Fe. I also agree with Kyroth that 4 marks for a question like this is practically a gift.

    What mark do you think you got?

    I'm confident with every question I answered of getting full marks...there is a possibility for the hundred percent...but taking into account a few silly mistakes, or missed marks on the big questions, I would guess aroun 94%....no less than 90%.

    I Know Whats In The Hsc Exam!!

    No, I'm making it up to doom your HSC. :p The resulting mixture after fermentation is only 15% ethanol (or 14 - 15 as Lace said.) Hence the need for distillation afterwards. EDIT: By 'stuff' I'll assume you mean the reactants (that is, the remaining glucose and stuff that's left over from...

    I Know Whats In The Hsc Exam!!

    OK, if we are to believe that this is the case (dot-points not asked as of yet will be asked tomorrow) have questions ever been asked multiple times in previous HSC's? E.g. was a question that was asked in 2001 asked again in 2003? I think if this isn't the case, then we can safely say that...

    Amphiprotic or Amphoteric

    For the purposes of the HSC, ALL acid-base reactions involve proton transfer. Lewis reactions are off syllabus and will not be tested in the HSC. Feel free to argue this point at 1:00 tomorrow :D
