Past years papers HOMEPAGE

Past years papers HOMEPAGE.

Update: 13th Jan 2016. Looking for actual 9701 Chemistry past years papers? Then go here: http://maxpapers.com/category/qualifications/international/cambridge/a-level/a-level-chemistry-9701/

Update: 24th Feb 2015. Paper 52 (5.2) (summer 2010) partial teachers report
Update 15th Feb 2015:: Paper 5.1 (winter 2009)  TEACHERS REPORT: 9701-51-OctNov-09 done.

 

Main Post:

The focus of this post is to give critical discussion and analysis of those papers, mark schemes and examiners reports, i.e., a kind of “teachers report” if you like.

The teachers report will contain many of my answers, (which may not be covered by the mark scheme). Nobody is perfect. If you spot a mistake, please leave a comment about it.

This is a long term project; Some, or rather most of (as of 15th Feb 2015) the pages have no content yet.

One thought on “Past years papers HOMEPAGE

  1. [Ed: This query is mostly dealt with in the partial teachers report for Summer 2010 paper 52 (5.2)]

    Problems faced in Paper 5

    Good morning, sir. I am Zhao Xuan. May I know if we are allowed to draw a horizontal graph in paper 5?

    Will you like to have a look at summer 2010 paper 52, q1d) can I prepare a range of 5 concentrations of KCl by performing successive serial dilutions?
    * This method is not mentioned in the mark scheme

    Can you look at summer 2010 paper 52, q 2e)?
    The examiner report:
    (e)Most candidates were able to identify correctly the two expected anomalous
    points, although credit was given for any number of points not clearly on the drawn line that were correctly identified. The two anomalous points, one on each side of the line showed that either the amount of the hydroxide was larger than anticipated or less than anticipated. An excess mass could be explained simply by the precipitate not being fully dry, while a loss of some of the precipitate would explain the other anomaly. Some candidates failed to realise that merely weighing a smaller mass would produce a mass of precipitate in proportion and hence not be anomalous.

    Sir, I can’t understand the one in bold. Can you explain?

    The mark scheme for q 2e):

    For each of the two different anomalies an appropriate explanation gains one mark.
    Point 4 (not enough Cu(OH)2): loss of the sulfate solution / not an excess of NaOH / loss of precipitate / recorded mass of the sulfate more than the actual value.
    Point 8 (too much Cu(OH)2): Cu(OH)2 still wet / contamination with other chemicals / excess sulfate weighed out / recorded mass of the sulfate less than the actual value.

    Sir, I don’t get the point how ‘excess sulfate weighed out’ causes anomalous point 8. Does it mean that the sulfate remaining on the precipitate is weighed with Cu(OH)2, causing an increase in mass?
