    For all us poor people having to put up with the glorious Salters specification! Feel free to share notes, link relevant websites, ask & answer questions and all that lovely exam stuff.

    I myself am working on loads of flash cards for F334 and F335 on Google Drive (and I'll probably upload a PDF or something when they're done), as well as having made some diagrams of organic synthesis reactions and how they link together.

    Try to keep it topical, civilised and - perhaps most crucially - accurate!

    Woo! Go Salter's!

    I've got all my notes sorted and have done most of the past papers, and am feeling a lot more prepared than I did for the As last year already.

    How was everyone's coursework?

    F334 I'm just above the A grade boundary. I'm near the A grade on F335, just need to get all my notes sorted, haven't worked on it as much as F334.

    My investigation was the iodine clock, got 44/45, which will hopefully help push my overall grade up into an A from the B I got last year

    I did the Harcourt-Essen iodine clock (a.k.a. the most stressful, painful thing I've ever done). My teacher thinks I've got an A, which is just as well given how dreadful my exams are going to wind up being. Need an A in Biology and a B in Chemistry to get to where I want to go, though even that could prove difficult, especially given my overall B grade last year.

    Here are two links, one to one set of cards and the other to another (both F334). I'd upload them both here but, y'know, size restrictions. The alignment is slightly off but you should be able to preserve most of each of the cards just fine.

    http://www.filedropper.com/chemistryflashcards1

    http://www.filedropper.com/chemistryflashcards2

    Hope these help.

    The answers to the flashcards are on the page following the questions. For example:

    Page 1 has questions on the left and right. Page 2 has the answers to the questions on the left to the right and vice versa.

    There are a few typos and mistakes from me not paying enough attention when I was making them but they're not hard to spot.

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you so much, these flash cards will help me out a lot . I really do struggle with chemistry, do you have any tips on how I can do well? The past papers are really difficult and I still need to go over some of the content

    Chemistry is my hardest subject too, mainly because of the specificity of the mark schemes. All I can recommend is seeing how the mark schemes answer the higher mark essay questions and trying to remember the key words they want to see (like talking about colorimetry: use an appropriate filter; calibrate the colorimeter using water; create samples of solution of known concentration; measure percentage absorption; plot against a calibration graph).

    A revision guide also helps, as well as diagrams, acronyms etc.. Unfortunately it seems Salters is extra strict with mark schemes so you'll just need to be sure to remember them.

    If anyone else has any tips then feel free to add to this!

    F334 was a terrible paper... I'm concerned that 'bad papers' are an OCR wide thing this year given the Biology paper I sat, the Chemistry paper my friend sat (OCR Chemistry A) and the Physics paper another friend sat.

    Oh well, let's do what we can! I got a higher B on an F335 paper I sat so maybe things won't be so bad?

    I've no notes, I'm afraid. I'm just looking through the official revision guide (which is surprisingly good at telling you exactly what you need to know).
