    Hi guys, I have a question. I was thinking of applying to do the RSC Chemistry Olympiad and I was wondering what I'd be likely to achieve. My AS Chemistry grade is an A (98%) and my Cambridge Chemistry Challenge was scored as a silver. Is it possible to push up to a gold for the RSC? Or could I maintain a silver for it? Thanks.

    Hi I am ForgottenApple, I recently finish A Levels with results: (A*A*A* Maths, Physics & Chemistry). This thread is to help you achieve a similar set of results. I created these resources for myself in my A-Level year and have brought them up into a good enough order to help other people out. This thread is a chemistry counterpart to a new thread I've made this year for Chemistry and incorporates all but the practical element of the OCR Chemistry A Level course (to be revised in 2015) but nonetheless there is a full year of students who can benefit from these resources and any students who opt to resit thereafter.

    Most notes I wrote last year, as well as the standard answers being made by me (idea from my college), definitions lists, legacy resources/past papers/bonus questions tend to be lifted :P

    Link to physics thread
    Unlike the physics thread
    I'm going to sort of build this as I go so it may not be complete for a month-ish

    Important Links
    Physics and maths tutor: Includes extra past papers from other exam boards, and the extremely useful questions by topic
    A Level Chemistry Website, mostly older spec past papers, and questions with solutions!
    Memrise - Excellent for rote learning definitions, equations and reactions (Good iOS and Android App!)

    ah organic chemistry, I decided to go with a unique 'on a page' model for this unit, inspired by maths which condensed units down to a single page. I'm going to release a PDF version of this, so you can print out pages as required
    Interactive Definitions
    Interactive Important Reactions and Conditions
    Full PDF of on a page
    Standard answers compiled from all legacy and current specification
    Legacy Past Papers



    F325
    Interactive Definitions
    Notes
    Standard Answers compiled from all legacy and current specification
    Legacy Past Papers & This
    Past Paper Spreadsheet Excel Template

    Good Post from pp. 2

    This is awesome! Same, I did a completely different revision format for organic chemistry!
    Thanks, and congratulations on your results - you must be so relieved.

    If ur not understanding how it works i guess ur only option is to memorise how to use each mechanism and the tests. For this i suggest cue cards and writing it out at least ten times or until it sticks so that if anyone asks u to draw it out you'd be able to do it without thinking even if u hav no idea what ur doing:p:$.

    Either this or u could ask ur teacher to explain it to u again but don't have the mindset of "i can't do this" otherwise u'll unconsciously give up before u can completely understand which will be very demotivating so it'll take u even longer to get it. Instead have the mindset of "i can do this".

    Hope this helps

    Thank you man!!! Really helpful!
    What is the point of module 1? Do you need to know it?
    And do we need to know about PAG? (Will we be tested on it?)
