3. Each candidate should be supplied with the following, where n is the candidate’s serial number.
(a) 150 cin3 of a solution of HNO3 in a corked flask or bottle, labelled ‘An‘.
These should all be the same containing 10.0 cm3 of concentrated HNO3 (about 70 %) per dm’ of solution.
(b) 150 cm’ of NaOH solution in a corked flask or bottle labelled ‘Be‘.
These should all be the same containing 4.0 g of NaOH per dm’ of solution.
(c) About 15.0 cm3 of an organic compound, propan -2-01 in a corked specimen tube or test tube labelled ‘Cu’.
This must be the same for all candidates.
(d) One spatulaful of crystals of iodine in a specimen bottle labelled ‘Dn‘.
This must be the same for all candidates.

  1. In all cases, more materials may be issued if required.
  2. The actual concentrations of A and B must be stated on the Supervisor’s Report Form.
    The candidates will assume that the concentrations are exactly as stated in the question paper.
  3. It should be noted that schools are not allowed to amend the .
    information provided on the question paper or substitute any substance/solution for those specified in these instructions.


  1. The laboratory places should be numbered serially and the candidates should be allotted these places strictly in the order of their index numbers.
    The number of every specimen supplied to each candidate should be the same as his or her serial number.
  2. If a candidate is absent, his or her serial number should not be allotted to another candidate.
  3. If the candidates are divided into a number of sets, the serial numbers should be continued through the sets, so that no serial number is repeated.
  4. At the beginning of the examination, it should be ensured that the candidates record their serial numbers as well as the index numbers on the front pages of their answer books, as they will be marked according to their serial numbers.

  1. Supervisor’s Report Forms are provided separately. You must enclose a completed Report Form in each envelope of scripts.
  2. The chemistry teacher should carry out the titrations required of the candidates in Question 1. The titration figures should be to at least one decimal place and should be carefully verified. Unless this is done at the some time as the candidates’ own titrations, wide variations could set in and the candidates may be unavoidably penalized.
  3. Any particular difficulties experienced by any candidate should be reported especially if the Examiner would be unable to discover these from the scripts.


  1. It is important that you remind candidates that chemicals could be dangerous when they are not handled properly. Before the practical examination starts, read.out the following statements to candidates.

“Even though care has been taken to select the chemicals you will wprk with, you are being reminded that chemicals could be dangerous. It is therefore important that you handle them carefully.
Call the attention of your invigilator as soon as you start having any unusual sensation. Wash your mouth thoroughly with plenty of water, should any chemical get into it. Remember to wash your hands thbroughly as soon as you finish handling the chemicals.”

  1. It is however expected that you will put the appropriate arrangement in place to prevent the occurrence of any accident.
