Hard! I always find chemistry hard! :sadnod:

The only way I can get the stuff to stick in my brain, is to go over and over the LO until I can do the past/practice papers correctly! :lol:

And don't worry about the close 1's. You'll have loads of time to pick up the extra few marks between now and the exam. :hugs:
