    I think speed is very important its good your finishing the papers so quickly with high accuracy. Ensure when you do the questions to answer them carefully trying not to make a mistake but quickly aswell, so when you finished the paper in (say) an hour you would have 30 minutes to check over your answers (this is the best case scenario). Its better to semi-"rush" (while being carefully and checking your answers) and finish the paper quickly so you have a crazy amount of time to go over your answers/question rather to finish the whole paper in exactly 1hour 30mins which leaves no time to check anything.
    i think this works for most , put for people who struggle with the subject and will make lots of mistakes i don't advice it...

    Lol.

    De Ja Vu...you might want to Prioritise what ever is your weakest Subject now.

    Chem 5 is actually much easier than Chem 4 but it takes more understanding rather than just Memorisation/Consistent work like in Chem 4.

    There really isn't much time. You can do it though if you start now bro. You'll really have to put in the hours though. I've been up at 6AM for the last 2 weeks everyday. I really want A*s and not A's.

    Wow that is really motivational...Im gonna get up at 6am from now on...
    Do you have any tips for unit 4? I mean theres a lot to remember but are there any good sites or revision tips for this kind of chemistry?
    Oh and for unit 5 there is more maths than understanding and memorising...the only thing that I hate is remembering all those colours for the transition metal ions...there are loads

    Chem 5 and Colours:
    Overview: Do a ton of questions.

    Chem 4 - My Teacher gave me an OCR Revision Guide which is a condensed version of the Text Book - thank god. I will start going through that today the whole of Unit 4 is spread across 34 Pages - Lol. So I will really enjoy going through it compared to the real text book. Actually looking forward to Recapping now so in a very good mood.

    My trick - It literally takes no time to remember the colours.

    Co- pink or pinC (I think of pink with a C) it always goes from Pink to blue
    Cu
    Blue - They sound Similar Cu always goes from Pale Blue --> Yellow unless its with Cl

    Yes it sounds stupid thinking of Pink with a C, I've done 1 Paper today and handed it in and I intend on doing all the Papers for Chem 5 and handing them into my Teacher by the end of Next week.

    That means I will be ready 3/4 Weeks ahead of time and will have time to thoroughly prepare for Maths and Chem

    I Why do I get up at 6AM. Every single day I have to do

    Maths: 2 Past Papers (C3/C4/D1)
    Chemistry: 1 Past Paper or 1 Module or Questions (Chem 5 or Chem 4)
    Physics: 2 Modules of Question Booklets which I got off the StudentRoom Each module has around 25 Questions.

    If I aim on getting A's or A*s I need to have every single question done possible AND AS MANY MARKED BY MY TEACHERS AS POSSIBLE by around the 27 May. They don't like to mark my work, but they won't complain when they see an A or an A* in August.

    This is only possible if I get up at 6AM. Everyone was in shock when I came into D1 Maths and went from being worst 2/3 weeks ago to now without a shadow of a doubt the best. One of the papers my Teachers Marked was 97%.

    I could take the Exam now and get around 85% and I am not happy with that. I am still going to re-do 6 Papers that were not higher than 90% this weekend.

    And I will do that for EVERY EXAM I'M DOING.


    Final Note: Why I am no longer taking notes
    Summary: The better alternative - question sheets

    Also I used to be one of those people that made millions and millions of Neat notes. If you saw my Chem 4 notes you would think I was OCD.

    Not anymore. No notes. AT ALL. I just have Question Sheets i.e. What doesn't affect the Kc? What are the limitations of Electrode Potential Reactions? What is the Stability Constant? What 4 Transition Metals are Catalysts (Examples and Equations?)

    And that was just off the top of my head now; don't waste time, you need to be able to test yourself, and be confident you know the syllabus.

    Think of it like this your result is the Average of how well you can take QUESTIONS for each module. Not how much you know.

    So your grade is proportional to the Number of Questions you did during your Revision Sessions. Ideally get them alll out of the way

    This is intense, lets go and nail these exams!

    I also get up at 6 each morning as I have to get to school for 7:30 for reasons, also with your question sheets did you make them yourself or find them from somewhere? If the latter is correct then could you send them to me please as I'm slowly running out of questions to do :-/

    Well done on your motivation and improvement! D1 was a pain of a module But I think notes benefit some people, me included - I agree questions are good for testing your knowledge, but to learn the knowledge first I have to do notes. Each to their own I suppose, but notes ensure my understanding to myself, and by doing them I remember odd facts that perhaps don't always come up in the questions. I'm not criticising, I'm just saying that I think that different people have different ways of revising

    Limz I am really glad you said that. Physics is my Weakest by Far. So really glad that I'm not the only one who uses like Question Sheets! Good effort if you can do the questions now - keep it up!

    MathsNerd haha erm no its just a question sheet I made myself, here is an Example, but I generally keep it all on my PC and update it as I find out I don't get stuff; so it's not complete until I finish all the papers. As someone who was great at the Humanities and used take alot of notes this is a real shock to me how differently you have to revise for the Sciences. Surprisingly you don't forget stuff.

    Here is an Example. I am not sure how much it will help because it is tailored to me:
    Mod 3 Questions Chem 5.docx (27.7 KB, 0 views)

    Speaking of not getting stuff: Please can anyone Explain how to work out Molecular Formula from Masses. I am not sure, it was on the Paper I handed in, and I just skipped it.

    They gave you Mass of Compound then the Mass of some elements in it and asked you to work out the molecular formula.

    I need this for Chem 4 too so if anyone can help I am really rusty on AS Stuff.

    Very nice and okay that makes sense then, I'm just repeating unit 1 too which is in 2 weeks today so I've hammered through 20 questions from the book that used to be exam type ones, woo!

    Also to help you out have they given you the percentages of the masses in the compound? If so then you just work out the empirical formula and scale it back up using the molar mass provided.

    Okay, just read the info you've given and can you remember how to work out the empirical formula?

    I'm not sure how to explain it, it's from AS.

    I remember you have to like divide by the lowest mass then multiply by something.

    Well you're in luck as I'm doing unit 1 again and what you do is find out the mole ratios of your elements by dividing your mass by the molar mass, then you divide them all by the one with the smallest amount of moles. This gives the empirical formula then you work out the molar mass of the empirical formula and compare with your mass of compound, then it's just a simple scaling to get the molecular formula.

    Hope this helps

    Yes it sounds stupid thinking of Pink with a C, I've done 1 Paper today and handed it in and I intend on doing all the Papers for Chem 5 and handing them into my Teacher by the end of Next week.

    Sorry mate. It's just a Hard-copy. Thanks I appreciate that - still have plenty to do. Just need to suck it up, and keep working.
