    I know its really early guys but I have been on holiday and enjoyed it. I would like to get ahead of the class in chemistry with CHEM4 doing as much as possible before I enter year13. I would really kill for an A* in chemistry so yeah I have to put the work in if I 'm really serious about it

    Here are some useful websites for the AQA syllabus. If anyone has any more useful websites or information let me know by quoting me

    Like I said if you have any revision notes or useful material, please share as I don't have a great deal.

    Yeah, I'm looking to start right now too, but I have no books at the moment and don't think I'll be getting any till the first day of school, so I guess I'm gonna have to learn online.

    thanks, yh tell me about it, that examiner knew how to ruin my future, i mean i was going so well until that 7 marker on addition elimination came along, wat on earth was that, i spent 15 mins on it and could not work out, so i became nervous than i panicked and than it was just downhill from there, yh i am not going to lie i would have gotten a U in unit 6 aswell but my teacher gave the whole class the answers because these practicals are stupidly insane,congrats you must have smacked the other units to get a B, Well done, yh i have started revision but not going through the book yet, i am making notes listening to this guy on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ir6L...D25E1C1D1B7907 , how about you..

    Haha same .I spent a good 10mins trying to figure out what was happening.
    They definitely got us .My school followed the rules to the T this year.My teacher is the head of chem and she didn't see the paper until after we did.We had to sit in in the hall with invigilators.
    Nope I haven't started:L I don't know what to do.I made notes last year in the form of a book,It took me FOREVER!!HELP ME I don't know if I should write new ones

    lol yh they did, man your school is strict,yh i was thinking the same thing on results day that if i retake chem 4 where am i going to start from, it should be easy for you considering your grade, start fresh, start with kinetics, read through the topic from the book if you dont understand something research on the net, you should definitely start new notes, but make sure you understand the topic and not worry too much about the notes

    Chem5 January 2010, Q3 (a) - does anybody know the "by definition" answer? As it's not written in answers. The question asked why the electrode potential for the standard hydrogen electrodes are equal to 0.00V? I just wrote "Because there is only Hydrogen and therefore no electric potential"?

    oh okah so your retaking, wow you started revising in june while i was in dubai enjoying my holidays, you sir are the most dedicated person i have ever met. well my theory has been that you finish the material first and then consolidate on the question papers, btw i have couple of questions if you dont mind me asking, how old are you? what other subjects are you taking? what university are you thinking of going and what course are you planning to do?
