    hello, i have a gcse chemistry exam on this monday coming. i have been reading through my cgp revision guide and have found two chapters that my chemistry teacher has not taught the class at all. the only thing we have learnt in class in one chapter. so i was wondering if anything in the other two chapters will come up in the exam?
    i asked my older brother and he said that everything your chem teacher has taught you in class will be in the exam. anything else will not. is that true?
    im so worried that i'll fail because of it.:woo:
    any help is appreciated, thankyou!

    I'd learn it anyway, better to be safe than sorry You can't predict what will be on the exam and some teachers are useless.

    It will probably depend on how good the teacher is. I recommend you go on the exam board website and look up the specification. This is the definitive list of the content that is examined. Under the 'new' GCSE sciences, assessment is often modular, so you may not have covered all the content yet, just that for the particular exam that you are taking.

    Is the CGP book both up-to-date and specific to your exam board? if not, then unless your chem teacher is utter crap, i would be pretty confident that your brother is right. if it is up to date and the right exam board, i would be slightly worried. however, i personally would concentrate on the stuff you have been taught; its only january so you can resit if your teacher has neglected to teach all of the course, and if s/he has you havnt wasted your time

    What board are you doing? There are specifications for your GCSE on the board's website.

    AQA: http://web.aqa.org.uk/qual/pdf/AQA-4421-W-SP-10.PDF
    Lol, can't find the OCR, hope you're doing AQA ;D. Good luck, you'll be absolutely fine as long as you follow the specification . XX

    What are the chapters would be a start to get some help.

    Chances are anything could come up but it's best to download the specification or some past papers and see what they want, that'll be the best idea.

    Your teacher must have had enough time to teach you all what you need for the exam, she can't miss two whole chapters!!
    And for GCSE, I'm sure you do one chapter at a time!
    Good luck for your exam !

    The likelihood is that your book is split up into modules, so each exam will be testing you on a different module. I know loads of teachers are hopeless these days, but I doubt they'll have managed to miss out two whole chapters.
    You shouldn't have anything to worry about.

    Firstly, whatever you do, take a deep breath and think positively.

    Then, although I am sure you would have been taught exactly what you need to know for the exam, you can check out the syllabus on the website of the exam board I hope this will help

    Good luck and you are not going to fail!! trust me

    you need to have a look on the board website for the specification relevant to your exam and know exactly what's in the exam then you will know for certain. if its one not particularly big chapter that doesnt sound like enough to me but if its a big chunk of the book you may have it all covered and the rest might be for other modules.

    To perhaps repeat the advice of others; obtain a copy of the syllabus and check if these units are part of this exam.

    I warn against the idea that "a teacher couldn't possibly miss out on a whole 2 units" - yes they could, there's plenty of incompetant teachers, I wouldn't give the benefit of the doubt untill you're sure. However, CPG is aimed to engross all possible exam boards, so there is the potentiality that they are indeed not relevant. So like I said, just make sure you check.

    Don't worry though, you have time to go through the material if it is "worst case scenario". Goodluck.

    Look at some past papers, and see if there are huge chunks you don't recognise! If there is, start cramming.

    with these text books you never need EVERYTHING in it. Dont panic, im sure your teacher has done everything right. If you get to the exam though and this stuff is in there make sure to tell the school about it because it isnt fair. Seriously though, GCSE's are a doddle, you should enjoy this level while you can, A levels are alot harder!
