    I did about as expected, 86/90 (my best January result )
    However, I think a few people in my school did worse than expected. It was a relatively tough paper, but the grade boundaries were still very high.

    OMG man how? Really happy for you...wish I did that well.
    Have you got any tips on how to do well in a subject like chemistry? Like how do you write notes...in class, keep teacher notes or just read the book? And do you do a lot of past papers and questions? I am planning on resitting in june and really want to improve no matter what it takes. My social life? SO BE IT XD

    Just do loads of past questions. My teacher is really good for that - people hate her for setting so many questions, but it really gets the message and the techniques firmly rooted in your brain. also, make sure you actually understand the material. In my experience, loads of people attempt to memorise the syllabus without actually understanding it, which is always going to lead to brain overload.

    That is ****ing awesome
    Do you have any tips or techniques of studying? Many people say do loads of practice questions. How do you write notes? Do you go home and write your own?
