    Thoughts... HL Noah Thomas

    I thought it was easy! :) I finished it fairly quickly, and other people were saying that as well....

    What did you think?

    The separation experiment was distillation right? :)

      really good

      Well I'm never really good at Science even though my teacher says I am, I found it hard. Probably because I have NO INTEREST in it whatsoever adds up to my difficulty of the subject. Anyway, I still fairly confident I got a pass - so at least I don't feel like I failed.

      Biology - Grand

      Chemistry - SOOOOO annoyingly hard (for me....)

      Physics - Meh...

      For the sepeation I did the ion exchanger is the right?

    5. avatar image


      *that right

    6. avatar image


      I did Distillation... I don't know.

    7. avatar image


      Yeah did ion exchanger too!

      i dont think so its meant to be distillation.. ion exchange is to make water soft and take away the hard ions and replace them with soft ions such as sodium

      But the question was about hard water

    10. avatar image


      Was it not evaporation

    11. avatar image


      It was distillation. I asked my teacher after the exam

    12. avatar image


      i did seperation by using filtration paper and funnel is that wrong ???? anyone ?or will i get any marks

    13. avatar image


      Oisink- it said to obtain pure water which can really only be done by distillation. My teacher said this year was the first they asked that. I found it easy to medium, biology was a tiny bit harder and chemistry was pretty easy

      I said condensation with the liebig condenser?!?!?!!?!?

    15. avatar image


      will I still get marks I messed it up with distilation

    16. avatar image


      How is that Condensation Sarah?

    17. avatar image


      I mixed it up

    18. avatar image


      Oh wait I see your point never mind

    19. avatar image


      will i get any marks??^^

    20. avatar image


      it was distillation a stupid question and mistakes made by many students!! but i think marks will be awarded anyways

    21. avatar image


      That experiment threw me off I did the wrong separation technique 🙃🙃

    22. avatar image


      Oisink- it specifically asked for a /pure/ sample of water. Perhaps you may earn some marks but in my experience, my teacher never gave me any marks for the wrong experiment.

      And also, one of the third years in my school had a teacher that advised them not to study the distillation experiment. Therefore that whole year got the experiment wrong, thank satan I looked over it.

      Which end of the battery does the LED meet to light up?

    24. avatar image


      Yeah I said condensation as well instead of distillation... I did the the Liebig Condenser and everything but I don't know how many marks I'll get

    25. avatar image


      I did write the distillation experiment but I just put a line through the diagram and I wrote the evaporation experiment at the back where it says extra work. Will I get full marks for the distillation experiment I wrote it all out with diagram and put a line through it. It's still visible, I'm just wondering

    26. avatar image


      Ye probably

    27. avatar image


      Ah okay then I'm good. I found the Chemistry and Physics very easy but the Biology was a bit hard, which I wasn't surprised because I don't like biology and all the plant shit. I prefer physics out of them all which is where I'm strongest.

      What I found weird was that no formulae were asked. Like the photosynthesis or HCl and NaOH. That made it easier in that sense for me :)

      It was so easy

      what was the substance used to neutralise the lemon

    31. avatar image



    32. avatar image


      Could you have said a base neutralises lemon?? I thought an acid an base cancel each other out no? :)

    33. avatar image


      Water is wrong. You can say a mild base like baking soda as lemon is a mild acid

    34. avatar image


      Yeah I said Water also, I knew I was wrong. Ug_roland2504 is correct.

    35. avatar image


      Guys distillation is the same as the liebig condenser.. I'm nearly sure anyway

    36. avatar image


      U can use baking powder or sodium hydroxide..etc to neutralise the lemon
