    We all know that the first Edexcel GCE AS Chemistry paper comes in only about a month and a half.

    WE ONLY HAVE 52 DAYS BEFORE THE EXAM :cry2:

    Since other people have been creating threads, I thought we might as well create a thread on the Edexcel GCE AS Chemistry Unit 1 paper
    Resources for revision:
    Do feel free to discuss what you struggle with in Unit 1 and what you need help on.
    I'd recommend checking out chemrevise and chemguide to understand stuff you probably won't understand.
    For calculations, RSC's Problem Solving Tutor helps quite a lot as well
    Also feel free to share questions on TSR's AS Chemistry Help thread as created by Dinaa
    Another website you might want to look at is chemnet though you need to sign up. Really helpful in general though And don't be afraid to ask for specific Unit 1 help on this thread or what you're stuck on
    IMPORTANT NOTE:
    You are NOT allowed to share exam materials which are locked on the Edexcel website or not available to students or materials used for the IAA controlled assessments.


    I've quoted some people who are doing AS Chemistry with Edexcel below, be grateful, it was a mission finding you
    Apologies if I didn't quote you, I couldn't find everyone on TSR

    :colonhash: Read my "About Me" section. I'm not Chinese, my TSR username is just the most epic character from Dynasty Warriors (google it ) I'm actually Asian but not Oriental Asian though :teehee:

    I don't know, but I think that would be racist to a Chinese person though

    Carry on doing past papers for Unit 1, it really helps to refresh memory by doing plenty of past papers
    I've got some notes for Unit 2 if you want, mainly Group 2 and 7 and Organics & Mechanisms

    PM me if you need help Calm down and do loads of past papers, it helps a lot in terms of understanding the examination technique. Look carefully where you're going wrong

    Besides memorising the mechanisms for Organic Chemistry, you could potentially try some exam practice and see what questions pop up and what they expect. If you need help with Organics, PM me, I enjoy Organics and Bonding more than anything else :lol:
