Hi all! So I just heard back from a student at the university I'm applying to and he confirms that the chemistry half of my entrance is even beyond AS/A(what it's called) Level Chemistry.

You could teach yourself between now and September.

I found this book particularly helpful: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Chemistry-Bi...for+Biologists

Hi!

I am teaching myself and it's quite hard because advanced stuff aside I've forgotten my basics and also because my entrance is on the 20th of this month

Are you serious ?? This isnt your personal help website.

I would suggest you hire a tutor ideally should have done so 2 weeks ago.
You have too much learn at this point and will not get more than a C even if you study non stop

Thanks but not thanks There's no need to assume that people aren't willing to go the extra mile for a stranger in need, if you wouldn't there's no need to be rude about it, just leave this be for someone that would like to.

I've actually got help from someone on another forum to solve the entire paper. All I'm asking for here is help with the advanced bits, I'm doing the basics myself and so I'm short of time.

Lastly, I really don't have the time to stretch this out into a debate so since you've expressed your opinion, let things remain at that

Update: at the time of posting this I just got the markscheme for the question paper from her

Mark scheme takes 2 seconds to find no big deal
People are willing to help but no teach a entire subject

People might be more willing to help if you offered them some money, it is tutoring after all

Exactly. This is at least a £300 job.
He should get a study buddy even then he doesnt have the time to prepare
