VCE Chemistry Free Trial Exam (2017) - written by me!

Hi all,

This took a while, but I've finished writing the trial exam that I promised a few weeks back! Share it with friends if you think it is helpful.

The exam covers the new study design, and should be quite a bit harder than the real VCAA exam (in retrospect I think some of the multiple-choice questions are quite fiendish  ::)). Please try it under exam conditions if you can - 15 minutes reading, 150 minutes writing, no notes.

I have also attached full suggested solutions to the exam. Discussion of the questions here is still very much encouraged!

As always I will be happy to help with clarifying anything in the exam/answering individual questions. I will update the pdf ASAP if there are errors in the current version.

Good luck! ;)

v2: Fixed some errors, improved the marking scheme slightly
v3: Found and fixed problems in 3 multi-choice questions! I also now have full suggested solutions to go with this copy of the exam!
v4: Minor corrections as pointed out by gypsyakhyar and VanillaRice
v5: Fixing some numerical answers in the suggested solutions, as pointed out by my students IRL
v6: Fixed Section A Q16 and Section B Q8 b. as pointed out by manishmao

Please make sure you have the latest copy of both the exam and suggested solutions!

Yes. If you wrote "methane" then you should specify the biological source it can be derived from, in order to distinguish it from methane sourced from underground. In the latter case it would not be considered a biofuel.

Thanks man! You're a legend. Just in Section B: Q1a. Power output, watts aren't a term that's used in the chemistry study design. Might confuse some students, such as myself (needed to do a cheeky google, haha!).
