    I am due to start studying for my A2 examinations next year and I have noticed in both student books for chemistry and biology that there are stretch and challenge topics, did you find any websites or revision guides helpful when understanding these topics or providing extra information?

    Also do you recommend certain websites or revision guides that have helped you studied for your upcoming examinations?

    Thankyou

    It's been a while since you posted and nobody's replied yet...maybe you should check out MarkedbyTeachers.com, TSR's sister site. It has the largest library of essays in the UK.

    They've got over 181,000+ coursework, essays, homeworks etc.. all written by GCSE, A Level, University and IB students across all topics. You get access either by publishing some of your own work, or paying £4.99 for a month's access. Both ways give you unlimited access to all of the essays.

    All their documents are submitted to Turnitin anti-plagiarism software, so it can't be misused, and the site's used by hundreds of thousands of UK teachers and students.

    What's more, you can take a look around the site and preview the work absolutely free. Click here to find out more...

    Hi there
    The stretch and challenge are generally there to help students achieving/ wanting to achieve As or A*s. although it helps to learn the content of the S&C sections, they are mainly meant to help you with the application questions in the A2 exams; where they take topics you learn and apply them to examples you may not have necessarily learnt about.
    Generally I have just used the textbooks to learn the topics, but my teachers have also been really supportive so if you're teachers are less supportive/ you feel you need extra reading material, there are loads of revision guides available.
    Also, the chemistry S&C (on OCR anyway) is rubbish, and is generally like 'if you plot this graph... Blah blah blah'
    Hope that helps, and feel free to ask me any more questions!
