I keep looking at my notes and revising from them. I make revision cards and posters but when I start looking at the exam papers none of it had gone in. What is happening!? 😢😢

Do papers then learn what you get wrong. Look at the mark schemes learn how to answer questions. Revising notes wont get you anywhere(personal opinion). Obviously learn everything first then do papers

Hello!

I recommend creating answers to questions you are keep on getting wrong, like the long 4-9 markers.
I would suggest looking at the mark schemes and looking for the words in bold because they are key words that you need to know!

For example, assuming you are doing OCR Chemistry A, a frequent question is 'How do Van Der Waal's Forces Arise?'

The main points are that there is an uneven distribution of electrons.
These produce oscillations and then these movements create instantaneous dipole
Then you say that this dipole creates induced dipole with the neighboring molecules.

As you can see I picked out the key points.

Remembering the key points is essential because once you have that you can easily just format you answer around it.

If you are struggling with key points and OCR Chemistry in general if you are doing it, I can help you by providing some resources I have made and some from the board itself.

Good Luck with revision and don't hesitate to ask any questions.

Would it be okay for you to send me the OCR Chemistry resources you have made? I'm doing F321 and F322 and am struggling slightly with my revision!
